Taco Bell Triple Steak Stack

tbtriplestack.jpgI should have known better. I should have known that what I saw in the television commercial wouldn’t look anything like what I actually received when I bought it. It’s happened so many times before. But, the Taco Bell Triple Steak Stack looked so full of steak and so delicious in the commercial that I let myself believe it was possible. Reality hit me hard as I opened up the wrapper to eat the Triple Steak Stack. It wasn’t filled with an inch-deep layer of juicy steak. There weren’t pieces of steak nearly falling out of it because it was stuffed so full. No, not even close. I had to lift up the top of the flatbread to make sure there was even any steak in there. There was, but much fewer and smaller pieces than I had expected. Many of the initial bites I took when eating the Triple Steak Stack resulted in only a mouthful of flatbread and cheese. At least the flatbread tasted pretty good. By the time I started getting to the steak, it was too late. My dream of plentiful steak had been shattered. Taking into consideration the price of the Triple Steak Stack and the modest amount of steak in it, I can’t recommend it to Phoood’s readers.

This is a bit disappointing but I still wanna try one. Maybe I'll get more steak than you did.

i went to my local taco bell, and ordered a triple steak stack, hoping for the best. i did get a little bit more steak, in mine. but, not a whole lot of it. stingy on the portion, is a good way to put it. more about the meat in a minute...what i did get in place of the slightly flavorful meat portion, was MORE cheese, a whole lot more of it. it seemed as if someone realized they shorted me, and threw on more cheese, hoping i wouldn't notice. i did. the flatbread was chewy, really chewy, and not cooked well. now back to the meat...the meat was fatty and stringy...so i eventually got tired of fighting with my food, and tossed the uneaten portion away. i am disappointed with the triple steak stack. if it remains on the menu, i won't be ordering it again.
semper fi, carry on!!

It is easier to reduce the amount of meat used than to increase the price to reflect the increasing cost of the meat. Another method to reduce product cost is to decrease the entire size of the offering. This method is readily visible when peering at the size of soup cans in the grocery store. You old and not-so-old folks surely recall when a soup can was a full meal but the smaller size of today can not sate my hunger. The day will surely come when it takes a 6-pack of soup to make one meal. Sniff.

I worked there, and people would intentionaly make them light because they also ate the triple stack. Being that we would only get 2 cases of the meat a truckload, they wanted to ensure they'd have some at the end of the day.
