Quiz: What belongs between the men's and the ladies' restroom?
Answer: Why, the Del Taco drive-through menu, of course!
In a definite case of truth being stranger than fiction, I snapped the above photo during an impromptu drive-through purchase at Del Taco. I mean, who wants to order and then consume food (using the term very loosely here) that is advertised between two restrooms?? At least the management is being honest about the correct categorization of their products.
But why, oh why, were we there? Neither my husband nor I have ever been to or eaten anything from Del Taco in our entire lives. We pulled in there to buy one of their 59 cent tacos for me to dissect and get exact weight comparisons between their ingredients and mine, following my last blog post that raised such controversy.
22 g of meat product (this is NOT 100% beef), which is 0.77 oz
2 g of cheese product, which is 0.07 oz
6 g of iceberg lettuce, which is 0.21 oz
Synopsis: While Del Taco uses slightly more "meat" in their tacos than we do (22g vs. 19g), this really is not a fair comparison because their product is not even 100% meat, but rather contains disgusting fillers. This is made up for by the fact that we use three times as much cheese (2g vs. 6g) which at $6/lb costs the same as the meat we use. We also used romaine rather than iceberg, the latter being entirely devoid of any nutritional value.
See, even Del Taco agrees with me. The real reason why we eat at home is not just because it's more nutritious, tastier, and less expensive - I'm just not enough of a daredevil to chance consuming their product.
