Man I am full, that was delicious.

You actually ate Del Taco food? Man, you must have been trashed.

Its like i don't even know you anymore. Hell, I probably had Del Taco in my baby bottle.
For a buck, nothing beats two bean and cheese burrito's with green sauce. nothing!

We have both Del Taco and Taco Bell in St. Louis, and I never touch Del Taco because it is merely a sinful pittance of the other.

Taco Bell. :-P

'Mexican' food does not denote nationality of origin. In this case, 'Mexican' is an adjective indicating the food is awful/disgusting/crap.

Mexico has alot of great things - beaches, tequila, cheap hookers - but the food, not so much. They can keep their burritos and tacos.

In the language of college students, 'Mexican' translates to 'affordable/effortless/plentiful' or 'anything but ramen, dammit'. Depending on the dialect. :-D

Taco Bell is not Mexican food. The only similarity it has to Mexican food is that they use tortillas. Sadly, "making a run for the border" is a guilty drunken pleasure of mine. :-D

ok, I must agree with you there. In my college days, there was a Taco Bell on the walk back from the main strip of bars. Bars closed at 2; TB closed at 3. It was PACKED for that hour. Police on duty every night. Poor college students coming back from a night of drinking with two bucks in their wallet could get three tacos and have leftover change. I did that most every thursday, friday and saturday nights. :-)

There was also a Hot 'n Now, but that was far enough away as to require driving.

I do not miss Ramen Noodles. 'There was one particularly broke semester where Ramen noodles and - I'm not kidding - ketchup on toast kept me from starving.

Taco Bell, spew. I've only had Taco Bell two or three times in my life and each time, I felt like I dodged a bullet from contracting food poisoning. Thankfully in California, we have good authentic Mexican food and the cuisine is more diverse than one thinks.

As far as ramen goes, well, I love authentic ramen soup. Better yet, homemade. In my college days, I'd either go home for Mom's ramen, make my own with a mixture of leftover/fresh ingredients, or if I'm at my laziest, I'd go to a ramen restaurant. Fortunately, the latter are plentiful in the L.A. area, if you know where to look.

AD's food snobbery always makes me lol. :-b

he's right though, Mexican food in Cali is awesome, I'm from Stockton Ca, and some of the Mexican food joints in downtown Stockton... :-L

There's a decent Hispanic population here in Portland too, so there is some fantastic Mexican food here also. Damn...now I'm hungry. :-b

Ramen is good, Pho is where it's at though. ;-D
