Ever seen a Red Burrito restaurant?
So first impression (by pictures) is that they have a decent product offering. Again, should not be in a Hardee's, but stand alone it might work somewhere. I ordered the Chicken Taco Salad. Now choice 1 is beef (shows chili), choice 2 is chicken for about 40 cents more. Well, it's just sliced chicken that has been "heated" and has no taste. I perceive the heating to be a microwave, as it's just soggy with grill marks on it. The shell bowl is stale and so puffy that it barely allowed for contents.
My co-worker ordered a chicken quesadilla before I ordered, and I got my food several minutes faster. Is there a hidden science to cooking a quesadilla? Even if there was, they missed that class. It was pressed so flat, it was as thin as a graham cracker. There was hardly anything in it. I was shocked.
Now, the quesadilla was slightly larger than the one at Taco Bell. Taco Bell gets 89 cents, Hardee's gets $3.49. Yes, I said $3.49. This salad was $4.99 and thoroughly not worth it's price either. Taco Bell is far from great, but the price makes the sacrifice a little more palatable. These prices and poor quality just make Taco Bell look better.
Yo quiero... well you know the rest :)
