Fast Food Review: Cheese Roll-Up from Taco Bell
If you gaze upon the Taco Bell menu board, you will come across a ton of choices but none more simple than the Cheese Roll-Up. This seems like an item for those either short on cash or looking for something without meat. If you’ve got less than a buck, this 79¢ item will do the trick. For someone like me, the Cheese Roll-Up is merely an add-on to a meal.
Taco Bell describes the Cheese Roll-Up like this:
A warm, soft flour tortilla rolled up with a blend of three real cheeses and melted to perfection.
Since Taco Bell has a Why Pay More? value menu with over 10 items for 99¢ or less, it’s a no-brainer that this basic snack makes an appearance. I can see the Cheese Roll-Up being a hit with little kids, but for a grown kid like myself, it’s not so bad either. There isn’t a whole lot to say about this except for the fact that it’s part of the cheapest menu items and it’s as plain as they come. It’s a perfect item for grubbing on the go but you will likely forget about even eating it since it’s tiny and forgettable. The warm, blend of tasty cheeses from the Roll-Up comes perfectly melted. Try it out with Taco Bell’s sauces for a little added flavor. You will find that the sauce will stand out better when coexisting with such few ingredients.
While the Cheese Roll-Up is far from special, it’s still an OK little item. If you don’t eat meat, Taco Bell has plenty of options to choose from with beans, cheese and rice as the main ingredients. A little tortilla and cheese blend rolled up into a neat package will cater to the most simple tastes and the price will only have you reaching for change.
Pros: Just 79¢. Simple and tasty. Would benefit from your choice of TB sauce.
Cons: Probably a little too plain for most.
Grubbing on-the-go: 9.50/10
