I know, Taco Cabana is not fresh Tex-Mex from the taqueria, or inexpensive deliciousness from the local Taco Truck. I also know that I have a secret bad food fetish or "taco affair" of sorts with this San Antonio-based chain. I am addicted to the soft chicken tacos, especially the plate. I will shamefully make bean/rice/pico tacos to accompany the chicken ones, and put pico de gallo on everything. The fajita tacos are pretty good (they are not the gloppy ranchero chicken ones of my dreams). And now that I have beared my taco-afflicted soul, here's the deal. Beginning today, and happening every Tuesday, for a limited time, you can get a fajita taco plate from TC for $4.25 from 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. Not a bad deal for lunch or even a quick dinner.
I also know that I don't like the Taco Hell, the flour tortillas are never really cooked right. I found out from GunsandTacos that the refried beans are rehydrated from powder (I'm still getting shudders of grossness out of that tidbit). And, well, I used to think the hot sauce was pretty good until a: I had the kind from the taqueria and b: those stupid packets went racing at the Juice Box during Astro's opening day this year. So, let's get kids addicted to the baddest of the bad mexican food? Really? If I had a child to corrupt, er, mold - my child would be a barbacoa addict and eat diced onions and cilantro for dessert.
