Taco Bell Waffle Tacos and Sausage Flatbread Melt Reviews


taco bell waffle tacoTaco Bell has launched a full menu of breakfast items including Waffle Tacos, A.M. Crunchwraps, A.M. Grilled Tacos, Breakfast Burritos, Sausage Flatbread Melt and Cinnabon Delights. For my taste tests I found that, I really liked some items, while other items I really disliked. Detailed Nutrition Facts for each item are included in each of my reviews. In this review, I focused on the Waffle Tacos and the Sausage Flatbread Melt.

Please read my reviews for the rest of the Taco Bell breakfast items

A.M. Crunchwrap® (Bacon, Sausage or Steak)

A.M. Grilled Taco (Bacon, Sausage or Egg and Cheese)

Breakfast Burritos (Bacon, Sausage or Steak and Egg) can also be made Fresco Style

Sides and Drinks (Cinnabon® Delights™ – 2, 4 or 12 Pack, Hash Brown, Premium Hot Coffee or Tropicana® Orange Juice)

I picked up all the breakfast items from the Taco Bell at 8033 North Durango, Las Vegas, NV 89131. There was no way I would be able to provide a detailed review of all these items in just one visit. Therefore, I picked up a few items with each visit over several days. For some of the visits I used the drive thru while other times I dined in. In either case, I was the only person in the store or in drive thru. For each visit, the person taking my order was friendly and the food was hot and fresh.

The Taco Bell Waffle Taco Review

Taco Bell Waffle Taco with Bacon

There are three different ways to order the Taco Bell Waffle Taco. The options are bacon or sausage or Egg and Cheese only. In all cases, the Waffle Taco comes with fluffy scrambled eggs, cheese and a side of sweet syrup. The price for a Taco Bell Waffle Taco is $1.99.

I really did NOT like any of the Taco Bell Waffle Tacos. The first time I had the Waffle Taco it was overcooked and way too chewy. This caused the egg to squeeze out of the waffle as I took a bite. The other times the waffle was extremely greasy. To the point that the napkin I placed it on was drenched in grease, Yuk. The waffle was a little better but lacking in taste. The watery syrup at least makes the Waffle Taco tolerable. The only way to use the syrup is to pour it onto the taco, as you cannot really dip the Waffle taco into the syrup because when you do, the egg falls out. With all the mess, the Taco is not a good item to eat in the car while driving. The sausage is a little dry with a little bit of spice. The flavorless bacon was more like dried bacon bits than fresh bacon.

The Taco Bell Sausage Flatbread Melt Review

The Taco Bell Sausage Flatbread Melt has a sausage patty and real cheddar cheese inside warm flatbread and then grilled to melt it all together. Overall, it was a little dry and not big on taste. However, the flatbread was warm and soft and the sausage has a little bit of spice that does provide some flavor. Therefore, for a buck ($1.00), it is not that bad.

Summary

The Taco Bell Waffle Tacos seem like a good idea but fall short on execution. I cannot recommend it as anything more than a novelty. The Taco Bell Sausage Flatbread Melt on the other hand is at least ok and worth a try.
