Review: Cheesysteak Gordita Crunch from Taco Bell

Ever since Taco Bell released their mobile ordering app, I’ve found myself relying on it because of one crucial element… customization. Being able to customize an order where you don’t have to repeat your drive-thru order four times has been a pleasure. Lately I’ve been craving cheesesteaks and tacos so I decided to fire up the Taco Bell mobile ordering app and create the Cheesysteak Gordita Crunch.


Since a lot of Taco Bell items are just a shuffling of existing ingredients, actually reviewing a customized order didn’t seem like such a bad idea.  My order consisted of a Nacho Cheese Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch as the base, and on the inside I used grilled marinated steak (+$0.80), extra 3 cheese blend (+0.60), and raw onions (+0.30). … continue reading “Review: Cheesysteak Gordita Crunch from Taco Bell”

Rip’n Chick’n from Popeyes Returns July 27th

Remember Rip’n Chick’n from Popeyes?  GrubGrade reader Jody sent over the promo pic for the next LTO following Hushpuppy Butterfly Shrimp and it’s the return of Rip’n Chick’n (review).  Rip’n Chick’n is described like this:

We cut a plump, all white meat chicken breast into big strips, marinate it in four different peppers and Louisiana seasonings then hand batter and bread it in our signature coating then fry it up crispy. We call it Rip’n Chick’n because you just rip it and dip it.

The $3.99 price includes fries, biscuit and ranch dipping sauce.  Look for it on Monday, July 27th.

Review: Bacon Club Chalupa from Taco Bell

I didn’t get around to reviewing the Bacon Club Chalupa last time it was being featured at Taco Bell.  Along with new Cap’n Crunch Delights, the Bacon Club Chalupa is now being promoted for a limited time so it’s time for a long overdue review.

Bacon Club Chalupa 1Taco Bell describes their Bacon Club Chalupa like this:

The Bacon Club Chalupa is back! Crispy bacon over juicy grilled chicken in a chewy chalupa shell with avocado ranch sauce, crisp lettuce, ripe tomatoes, and three cheese blend.

For the most part, the Chalupa is a pretty strong menu item.  It’s one of the more uniquely textured and flavored items you’ll find at Taco Bell.  Sure you’re still stuffing the usual ingredients in there, but it’s a nice change of pace from the traditional soft or crunchy taco shell. … continue reading “Review: Bacon Club Chalupa from Taco Bell”

Review: Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog from Sonic

I give Sonic credit for taking advantage of the hot dog market and offering an array of flavor combinations.  When a lot of fast food places give you mostly burgers and chicken, Sonic mixes it up  and continues to push the limited time hot dog choices.  While not overly impressive in any way, the classic dog combos are still pretty decent.  Recently, changing the hot dog bun seems to be Sonic’s way of refreshing the menu… pretzel bun, cheesy bun.  The newest entry to the hot dog family at Sonic is the Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog.  Let’s review.

Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog 1Sonic describes their new Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog like this:

SONIC’s Croissant Dogs take a new, gourmet twist on a Sonic classic hot dog.    We start by baking a soft roll, with all of the flaky goodness and buttery taste of a delicious croissant.  Then, we nestle the juicy premium beef hot dog in the croissant and top it off with cheddar cheese and bacon.

There’s an opportunity that may have been missed here and I’ll get into that further in a moment.  First let’s get all the components (besides the bun) out of the way.
