Taco Bell Reveals Why It Took So Long to Get Fries on the Menu
Until very recently, Taco Bell stuck to a strict no-fries policy. Until very recently, Taco Bell stuck to a strict no-fries policy. The chain is, after all, hawking re-imagined Mexican (but highly Americanized) dishes like quesadillas, tacos (often sheathed in a Dorito shell), and burritos, as fast food. Fries were for all those boring burger chains, of which they are many, fighting amongst themselves for supremacy. But fries were the one thing that always seemed to be missing from an otherwise very delicious, and very tempting (when it comes to fast food, at least) menu.
Sietsema may not be much of a fan, but the chain’s loyal customers are clearly on board with the Nacho Fries:
