New? from Taco Bell. The Beefy Melt Burrito for 99¢.
Our classic seasoned beef, seasoned rice, three cheeses & cool reduced-fat sour cream sealed up by a warm flour tortilla & melted to perfection.

And…this is a remix of what. Taco bell just needs to stop. They are now in the realm of ridiculousness with their combinations.
And they still won’t make me a bean soft taco because it “isn’t on the menu.”
I think they are getting their ideas from all the stoners that drive thru at 1 am. The beefy melt burrito is a case in point.
I would tend to agree… I think they should try something like a build-your-own burrito bar or something.
All of the Taco Bells around here will make a bean soft taco. They’ll make anything you want if they have the ingredients for it.
yeah mine to but I do agree. Promo’s are meant to be special items. Not crap I can make at my local taco bell by removing one thing.
Heres my review Im angry >:( http://smidview.blogspot.com/2011/05/review-beefy-melt-burrito.html
They’re replacing the Beefy Crunch Burrito with that? That’s a true shame.
Really? Is taco bell even trying anymore? In the last year have they had one limited time item that didn’t have sour cream? Kudos to them for not putting nacho cheese on this, but they get a big fat F for lack of effort. How about a volcano cheesy gordita crunch or grilled stuffed burrito? Maybe a steak and guac(very under used at tb) burrito with fiesta salsa?
At least baja gorditas are still on the menu.
Reminds me of Subway and Panara. Taking ingredients already in the stores, and creating “new” menu items that seem like small variations of customizable options already offered. Maybe not an F, but a D-.
Yeah, this is just a cheesy beefy melt with one less scoop of three cheese blend. When we got our product briefing at my Taco Bell, I was wondering why they bothered changing the name. My Taco Bell which, incidentally, WILL make anything with beans if customers ask because we’re that awesome.
Getting rid of the beefy crunch burrito…is going to make people riot >_>;;
LOL gotta love that reduced-fat sour cream…it’s practically health food now!
Had one of these for lunch (heard about it first on GrubGrade!) and it was definately ‘meh’… I was by my non-usual Taco Bell where the Beefy 5-layer Burrito and the Fritos Crunch Burrito (or whatever it’s called) are $1.59, and a bean burrito is $1.29 — at my local TB they’re all still 99 cents…
it looked real good on the menu, had’nt been to taco bell in over a year so i thought i give it a try, and as usual very disappointed hardly any meat just rice and cheese. i think they are scared to use meat or something, finished with taco bell
Wow that combo of ingredients that is real creative.
BRING BACK THE BLACK JACK TACO!!!
I generally avoid Taco Bell, but I was addicted to those black jack tacos! I must have eaten a million of them.
I agree, the black jack taco was fantastic. If you want one just get a regular taco with baja sauce. Other than the color it’s the same thing. I could drink that stuff. Why they also call it pepperjack sauce hurts my brain.
Where’s the beef?
I’m eating one of these right now. 🙂 And it’s very…meh. I think the only halfway “new” thing about it is the combination of rice with the beef. I think their rice is usually only paired with beans or chicken. Mine had a lot of beef but it needed more cheese (or even nacho cheese). I won’t be ordering this again.
Also, I’d love it if Taco Bell had a bean soft taco. I used to love the ones at Taco Bueno, before they closed all their locations around here. I’d be happy with just beans, shredded cheese and salsa in a tortilla. Yum.
How about something new? God damn, get more than 5 ingredients
look at McDonald’s
It seems there are stoners who are running Taco Bell in recent years. I’m sick of the cheesy, the volcano stuff and the cheapo crap while they quietly raise the price of other items such as the burrito supreme (at my TB it went from 2.19 to 2.59). The last item promo I really liked was the grilled stuft chicken enchilada burrito. The last “value” item I liked was the chicken burrito.
I agree it would be cool to have a bean taco or a mini bean roll up. Sometimes I don’t want a bean burrito but want something smaller.
Also they should bring back the chili cheese burrito to all Taco Bells!
It was exactly as I expected, ok. At $.99 it makes me wonder who even orders a “taco” at Taco Bell anymore when you can get things that are bigger and slightly better for the same price. But this makes me yawn…waiting for doritos shells at my Taco Bell. My only question is this, are they put mine in the melty oven but that was after they put sour cream on it, so they cooked my sour cream. That seemed weird to me and probably not right.
got one of these for lunch today, it was rather disgusting. bland beef and rice, hardly any sour cream or cheese. meh.
Someone should make a random Taco Bell promotional product generator. In fact, I think that’s how they probably come up with their ideas.
I’ve got to second this idea.
lol good idea. spin the wheel of new taco bell ideas! “cheesy” “melty” “burrito” “taco” “blue” ” “black” “stuffed” “grilled” “soft” melty black taco!
Melty black taco!
That actually sounds pretty good to me. You should apply for a job at Taco Bell Corporate HQ.
CHEESY BLUE TACO
Brilliant. Reminds me of an old Saturday Night Live skit where Aerosmith came up with new songs by rearanging words of previous songs: Amazing Crazy Cryin’, Cryin’ Amazing Crazy, etc.
gotta love the taco bell haters. i understand that they recycle a lot of their ingredients, but what other major fast food chain dishes out new products every 2 months that are under a dollar?
Lava sauce is just a quarter extra by me, I’m sure I’ll be adding that anytime I order this work of corporate mediocrity.
Just tried one of these. While it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t anything special; it essentially seems like a “dumbed down” version of the Beefy 5-;ayer Burrito…which is he exact same price.
Isn’t this the same thing as the past 3-4 months, just minus one ingredient and +$0.10? First it was the 5-layer for $0.89, then they removed a couple ingredients and stuffed hot fritos in it, then some other variation, and now just meat+cheese+rice for $0.99. Pretty soon it’ll be just a flour tortilla+meat for $1.19.
These deals are pointless. Their “normal” taco is $1.29 now, but their double-decker with nacho sauce is $0.89? Save money by throwing away half a taco, right that works.
On a somewhat related note, I found out about this blog from Googling “Blackjack Taco review” since I wanted to figure out the gimmick. Nice to hear mention of it again. 🙂
I love Taco Bell but yeah their concepts are pretty uncreative, yet tasty.
God, they are just pushing the same rehashed garbage over and over. Please hire some creative people over there at Taco Bell.
Maybe it is time to start deep frying at Taco Bell.
Chimichangas, Taquitos and Flautas anyone?
They have taquitos already. Also, if you want fried, there’s always chalupas or a Mexican pizza. Or anything with a hard shell, really.
I haven’t eaten at Taco Bell in 6 months. They can go to hell. I can’t believe people still eat there.
[…] Grub Grade and Taco […]
Had one of these today. I was 60% satisfied with my 88% beef.
You know, I actually think that these ideas might come from “mistakes” made with the ingredients at taco bell.
Or maybe I’m just hoping that because one of the guys there “accidentally” put the flamin’ hot fritos on the five layer burrito I ordered (without beans…plus lava sauce). I got it for free…and it was the best thing I’ve had there in a while. 😀
I know they just throw just randomly throw in the same ingredients and give it a different name, but man I am a sucker for these promotions. Will be going to Taco Bell tomorrow.
My boyfriend bought the other day when i was with him and he said it was good. However, he said he would stick to the beefy crunch burrito.
These are OK, I preferred the Beefy Crunch Burrito at this price point.
But that descriptions contains two words I absolutely loathe to read on the menu in any restaurant or food establishment, large or small: “…to perfection”. ugh. someone a hire a better copywriter, please.
You people are all too hoity toity for taco bell.
At least you used to be.
This is the first new thing in years that didn’t have 4 too many ingredients.
cheese, meat, rice, sour cream, tortilla.
And for a buck?!?!
Now that’s the taco bell I remember.
You lot can go to wherever they put 20 things in a burrito.
Does anyone remember the Triple Cheese Melt from TB in the mid 90s? Their best offering, ever.
I went on for my daily Beefy Mely today and I was told it gas been taken off of the menu. What gives?
