I overhyped this one in my head, I like tex mex too much for it to live up to my excitement.
However I need to point out that when you Google images search for ‘Taco Bell Picnic’ there are a weird quantity of Taco Bell picnic engagements. So what I only considered worthy of a 4 out of 10 score for a standard Saturday afternoon is somehow worthy of a proposal to many, many other people. So maybe I have misjudged here.
This was my first trip so I went for a combo box with extra sides, like a car park tapas. I ordered a Quasadilla Cravings Box for £7 with some extras
Crispy Beef Taco
Spicy chips with a cheese dip
Churros with a caramel dip
Which I thought was quite a bargain
Plus plain chips and then a cheese wrap for £1 for Emily. It was as bland as it sounds, I think just American cheese rolled up in a wrap.
This was before restaurants and outside dining were allowed so we couldn’t even sit on the picnic benches. Instead we had a picnic blanket set out on the pavement by the drive through so everyone could stare at us, somewhat reducing our dining enjoyment.
The food itself was OK, my American friend informs me the American version is fattier, saltier and greasier and I think I want that.
Fun factor : 4 out of 10 (should have gone to Five Guys)
