Taco Bell

So I’ve heard that the first Taco Bell in Quebec has opened up on Sources Blvd in Pierrefonds. I must confess that I have never ever been in a Taco Bell restaurant or eaten anything from Taco Bell or even seen a Taco Bell tv commercial. For real. What I know about Taco Bell has always been second hand. Apparently they have a chihuahua as a mascot, but he died. Their food is so good that people will drive across the border just to satisfy a craving. What is this magical food substance that I have been so blissfully unaware of? So has anyone gone to the new Taco Bell out on the West Island yet? Any comments, recommendations, rant, raves, or warnings? I’m curious and tempted, but not sure I’m motivated enough to make the trek to the boonies.

    We noticed, it’s just across the park from where we live.

    And no I haven’t gone yet, we have amazing indian and sushi places even closer so the need for junk food is not very pressing.

    Some friends of mine brought me back a Gordita from their trip out there.
    Old, cold, microwaved and soggy, it was everything I hoped it would be and more.
    Be prepared for a 30-45 minute line-up and order the supreme fries.

    I’ve never been the biggest fan, but years ago when I worked at Cargo Records our US delivery driver used to pick up several orders for those so inclined.

    Very recently, here in the US northeast, Taco Bell food has been responsible for a number of cases of e-coli. With all the impending lawsuits, no wonder they’ve gone to Canada!

    There are so many great places to eat in Montreal; why would anyone waste their money on this fast food joint?

    I love Taco Bell. I’ve only ever had the tacos – regular ones and also soft shell. A friend of ours lives in Belleville, Ontario and when he’d come to visit he’d pick up a box of a dozen tacos.

    I’m interested in trying some of their other stuff too after seeing all the mouth watering ads.

    Rick – I agree there are a lot of great places to eat here, but sometimes you just really want some good old junk, and it can’t be any worse for us than Mcdonalds, Belle Province, and Lafleurs! :)

    Well me and a buddy took it for a spin. I blog the results HERE: http://theendofdave.com/?p=907

    It was not a good experience.

    I’m too spoiled by the authentic TexMex and CalMex I grew up with. I’ve found wonderful examples of every type of cuisine here in Montreal, except for Mexican food. I’m reduced to cooking it myself. What I really want is a Chili’s chain restaurant.

    in the town where i grew up, the first taco bell within reasonable proximity opened – only about 12 years ago or so. at first, it was always lined up and packed all day. the popularity lasted for a few months, but now, its empty and seldomly visited. hopefully the same happens to this one.

    I just found out yesterday that there’s a taco bell in west island, sooo excited to go get my fix. i make an almost monthly visit to toronto to see my family and almost always try and make a stop there. and now that i’m expecting my second bundle of joy, can’t wait to have their fries supreme without having to drive for four hours.

    People, if you are familiar with Taco Bell’s menu in the US, you will be very disappointed at the one on the West Island.
    The only thing on the menu, is tacos and FRENCH FRIES? they are crazy! fries are NOT mexican food.
    there is absolutely NOTHING on the menu! ridiculous! and they are charging $1.09/taco.
    With no menu, and exsorbient prices, there’s no way I’m EVER GOING TO EAT THERE! what a major blunder! If they don’t change these policies, it will be a huge flop!
