Bob’s Burgers’ taco burgers

Earlier this week, my husband and I went to a used appliance store on Central near Atrisco and purchased an early-Aughts Kenmore washer and dryer set. As we made our way back Downtown we passed a Bob’s Burgers and decided to celebrate our thrifty purchase. Having been vegetarian for many, many years until recently, I’ve still not had (or really desired) the chance to feast on the world’s cornucopia of meaty delicacies. Therefore, I’d never eaten a taco burger, which seems like a ridiculous food, so I was skeptical of its reported deliciousness.

I have to say, eating a taco burger for the first time was like when I gave into the fact that Steely Dan is an excellent band—so processed, so cheesy, so good! I wouldn’t indulge in a cheese food and chile-covered hamburger patty inside of a taco shell, or the jazz rock of Can’t Buy a Thrill every day, or every month. Maybe not even every year. But it’s nice knowing these things are there waiting for me.

[By the way, the new appliances are swell, and we spent $300 (with free delivery and a lifetime warranty) instead of $3,000. Go bargains.]
