  • For a meal including three tacos, it will cost about $6, and the tacos are a little over $2 each
  • If I were to recommend one flavor of these Cantina tacos, I would only recommend the steak
  • It is not the best thing on the menu, and it is neither filling nor memorable for its price, but if you are burned out on Taco Bell and still stuck eating there, or if you just want a different taco, the steak Cantina taco is an alright choice

      Taco Bell has come out with what they are calling Cantina tacos, which come in two soft corn tortillas doubled up, with cilantro and onions as well as a lime wedge. The fast food restaurant offers three meat choices - carnitas (marinated pork), steak, and chicken. For a meal including three tacos, it will cost about $6, and the tacos are a little over $2 each. There is also the option to get just two at a time for a slight discount.

      The steak flavored tacos are advertised with images of large, meaty chunks of grilled steak piled into the soft, warm tortillas. Naturally, nothing lives up to how it is advertised when it comes to fast


      food, but I was still interested in trying these. My steak taco came in a foil wrapper like the others I had ordered, with the lime wedge (which was pretty dry) stuck between layers of the foil. The tortillas on my taco were stretched and had a few holes in them, but they held the steak in well enough. The amount of steak in the tacos was disappointing - hardly a scoop - but to be expected for the price.

      Unlike the carnitas and the chicken, the steak was not drowned in a thick marinade. While it looked like it had been seasoned and marinated, it was not covered in the gravy-like sauce Taco Bell had used ...


      • on the others. There was a lot of cilantro in the taco, but worst of all were how many onions it had - twice as many onions as meat. I had to methodically scrape out a little over half of the onions, then squeeze out the dry lime wedge over the taco to mellow out the oniony flavor. Where the other tacos sagged under the weight and sogginess of the meat, this one seemed to hold up well, perhaps since there was so little meat in there in the first place.

        The flavor of the steak was great. It had a nice, spicy beef taste to it, and it was not over-seasoned. The texture

        was okay - it was a little chewy and had a few fatty bits in it, but it was not unpleasant. The cilantro and onions were a bit overwhelming since there was little steak to flavor the taco, and the corn tortillas were tough and chewy, making it much harder to enjoy the filling.

        If I were to recommend one flavor of these Cantina tacos, I would only recommend the steak. It is not the best thing on the menu, and it is neither filling nor memorable for its price, but if you are burned out on Taco Bell and still stuck eating there, or if you just want a different taco, the steak Cantina taco is an alright choice.
