Review: Crispy Taco from Burger King
Although the Crispy Taco from Burger King isn’t exactly new, they’re still billing it as an introduction. Burger King’s Crispy Taco is reminiscent of the tacos at Jack in the Box so if you’re on the eastern side of the country, this is as close as you’re gonna get.Here’s how Burger King describes their Crispy Taco:
Introducing the Crispy Taco featuring a crispy, crunchy tortilla, filled with delicious, seasoned beef, shredded cheddar cheese and lettuce, all topped with just the right amount of our savory taco sauce.
This was my first time trying Burger King’s Crispy Taco and now that I’ve had it, I hope BK considers keeping it around longer than an LTO. Let’s review:As you can clearly see, the Crispy Taco is pretty pathetic looking. It’s not very appetizing in pictures or when you see it for yourself. Don’t let the visuals deter you from giving it a fair shot. Unlike the Crunchy Taco from Taco Bell, BK’s Crispy Taco shell will vary in the way it lays… imagine a corn tortilla deep fried and pressed together and the edges getting a hardened crunch while the center where the ground beef sits is soft and chewy. I ordered two Crispy Tacos and the shell just twists and bends in spots differently on each. The seasoned beef was nothing impressive, just a taco seasoning glob of pressed meat. The rest of the components include some shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce strewn about and mild taco sauce. It’s a lazy creation, but the shell has such a satisfying crunch and snap that it won me over. At a price of just $1, Burger King’s Crispy Taco is a decent value and makes an excellent a la carte addition to a BK combo meal. You won’t fill up until you’ve had at least a few of these tacos and maybe by that point you’ll have to use the toilet anyway. Grab a couple for two bucks and you’re good.In closing, the Crispy Taco from Burger King is definitely an item I’d grab again. Yeah I admit it looks awful, but it’s a satisfying value menu item that fits just right on the BK menu.
Pros: Loved the crispy crunch of the tortilla shell edges. Just a dollar.
Cons: Visually pathetic. More cheese, please.
