On the way home from grocery shopping, being the gluttons for punishment and rolled tacos that we are, we ventured into the drive-thru at Roberto’s here in OB. We haven’t been there in quite a while and had heard that the prices there had gone up, $8.62 for 12 rolled tacos with guacamole. Whew.
I recollect paying $2 for 20, but then we were paying about seventy five cents a gallon for gas. The price of gas, the price of corn…. how can I complain about the price of tacos if I don’t complain loudly enough about the price of gas? So yeah, 12 rolled tacos with guac, cheese, green sauce and a sprinkle of Parmesan.
We took them home and after putting the groceries away, sat out on the front porch in the great weather and started right in. They were tasty and we had finished about half of the top layer when Frank asked, “what kind of tacos are these?” They had so little meat in them you surely couldn’t taste it.
I couldn’t believe it really. We’ve all seen lean tacos, but man! Incredible. But hey, we ate them anyway. When we got down to the last two we decided to open one up and see just how much meat there was. Muy poquito carne.
I picked up the last taco and took a bite. Take a look. Click on that picture down there and really look. But now that I think about it, it didn’t say “Rolled Beef Tacos” on the menu, it said “Crispy Rolled Tacos,” and hey! I’ll give ’em that much.
