    Man...So last night, Crackpipe, Mince, my bro and I were hanging out at my house. Crackpipe gets hungry and we go to Taco Bell. I get 3x soft tacos and a beef/potato burrito. It's all good, I go to bed around 2am-ish

    I wake up at 8am and my stomach is KILLING me. I feel like I need to drop off the cosby kids. So I go to the bathroom, do my thing (a lot of it), stand up and stretch. I burp and a little bit of that upchuck taste came in my mouth and BAM! I was throwing up Taco Bell in the toilet (AFTER I FLUSHED). Today I've had the sensation of throwing up and I've crapped like 4 times in 4 hours. My innards must've been bone dry and I just ate a wheat/turkey sub w/ sprite...hoping I don't throw it up.

    And I hate calling in sick to work, so I told my manager I was gonna be late. I went to work and he saw I was white as Casper and sent me home on sick time. Much love.

    Sure tasted good for me. I don't know, I can't imagine not liking Taco Bell.

    to think that taco bell is grade four meat, dog food is three, and prime sirloin is one

    EDIT: sorry my grammar sucks, im not exactly an A+ student when it comes to communication arts

    I always heard it was cow lips and ass. It's too good for me to care, haha.

    That sucks Bear. I had a similar experience when I was little with Chinese food and I will not touch the shit ever again.

    I've gotten food poisoning from fancy places too, it happens. Don't pass on that yummy, cheap, "Mexican" food over one bad incident. You might call the restaurant and complain to see what you can get though.

    that happened to me twice at the same taco bell in the city I work in. I'm scared to go to that one again. I just go to other taco bells and i've been fine.

    That low grade meat shit is all bullshit. Someone needs to read fast food nation.

    Think of how often you've eaten Taco Bell and how little you've been sick from it. I'm not some fast food fanboy, but it pisses me off when someone gets sick one time and then puts everyone into "fast food is evil" mode.

    I'm pretty sure TB uses this as an ingredient:

    But, who cares? It's wonderful tasting.

    Yeah, it's all Grade A beef folks. Lower grades are not allowed in the human food supply at all as far as I know.

    Years ago, I had a taco from Taco Bell with bad beef. Or good rat. when chunks of meat still has hair growing out of it, you know it's bad. I don't eat tacos TO THIS DAY.

    It may not be allowed, but lower grades get in anyhow. :p

    I still eat Taco Bell.... It's cheap, filling (if you can stomach it), and convenient... It's even tasty at times. :D

    I've never had a problem with 'em, but I usually eat the nachos. I guess there's little room for contamination there, or it's just covered up really well with all of the other stuff.

    Similar thing happened to me

    Went to the taco bell near my work and had a huge lunch, about 2 hours later my stomach is killing me. Really gassy and cramps, but no nausea. Tried desperatley to hold that shit in (literally) but it wasn't letting me, ran up to the bathroom at work and just destroyed the fucking toilet, I mean destroyed it so bad I'm glad no one was in the same room, cause they would have thrown up.

    god this thread is making me hungry, anyone down for some TB?

    best was the taco bell in east cleveland, affectionately, we called in Ghetto Bell. The place was like a bank, it had a slide out bullet-proof glass drawer where you put your money, then they sent the tacos out through that. Open till 4 a.m. There was also a sign that said "If asked to pay different amount than indicated please call the customer service number"

    Ahh, good old East Cleveland...

    Taco Bell is convenient and somewhat simulates tacos at least. Not great, but better than some other fast food places.

    I stopped going to Tb when the one here in town made national news. A pissed off employee was caught putting fecal matter in the refrieds. Haven't had an appetite for anything TB since.

    nasty, i hope nobody ate that crap. i don't see how you wouldn't notice the smell/taste of shit.

    but I'm sure something gross like that has happened at all restaurants/grocery stores at some point. the only way to avoid it would be to have a farm and do all your own food.

    taco bell is pretty good though. it's cheap and easy. i like taco time better and loved taco bueno when I lived in the south. I had a bad experience with taco del mar so it's hard for me to ever look at that place again. I try to avoid eating out a lot anyways. but my g/f and I have long days so sometimes we have to. but usually it's only maybe once a week.

    No one remembers the E. Coli shitfest that happened with taco bell a few years back?

    Or was that only the NJ tri-state area?

    ya i can't remember if that was national or not.

    the e. coli crap happened to a Jack in the Box in Bellingham here. I used to hate Jack in the Box as the food was such low quality. After that though, the food got so freakin good.

    The only thing I ever get from Taco Bell is bean burritos. I play it safe :)

    I think the E. Coli was found on the scallions and not the meat. So you never know :p
