Taco Bell Breakfast Lands in Memphis

Taco Bell launched breakfast service to locations across the country today, the occasion making a minor holiday for junk food fans who have longed for their greasy morning favorites to finally be delivered in a bag, from a window, and in taco form.

Despite the anticipation, the Memphis Taco Bell location at Third and Crump was quiet and its drive through lane was empty. I paid the $4.36 for the combo and sped away to the Memphis Flyer headquarters on Tennessee Street.

Taco Bell has been flashing photos like these in the weeks-long run-up to the breakfast launch.

The thing was a little tough to get out of the box. I’m not sure the waffle taco is really driving food.

How was it? Well, the waffle was chewy and vaguely sweet. The rest was that same warm, salty goodness of fast-food egg and sausage that you can enjoy if you turn your brain off. Oh, and the hashbrown was fried, salty, and what you’d expect.

Nutrition stats on the Taco Bell breakfast are plainly available on the chain’s website. But that’s hardly the point. If you’re getting breakfast in a bag, from a window, with a soft drink, you’re in a hurry, hung over, a fast-food fanboy, or just plain curious.
