Taco Bell released a slew of new items this morning, including the Biscuit Taco. Right now I am reviewing the non chicken version of the Biscuit Taco, the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese version. (You can also get a Sausage, Egg, and Cheese version).
I paid $2.49.
My first reaction was thinking how small it was. The Biscuit Taco is only about 6 inches long. I expected something bigger for $2.49. Also I was a bit surprised that the cheese wasn’t melted. Looking at the previews from Taco Bell HQ, the cheese is supposed to be melted. I figure mine had recently come out of the refrigerator and didn’t have time to melt. I don’t want to knock the whole Taco just because mine was made wrong, but that was a disappointment.
The biscuit was nice and fluffy, and slightly buttery on the inside. It holds the taco together well. The biscuit would be excellent as an individual item, but inside a taco, I felt that the biscuit completely overpowered the other ingredients. Each bite was mainly biscuit, and the egg, (non)-melted cheese, and bacon couldn’t really get their flavors out.
Unfortunately, this caused the entire Biscuit Taco to be really dry. The biscuit was dry, the eggs were dry, and so was everything else. It also was almost completely flavorless. The texture was nice, but no ingredient was bringing any flavor. The bacon tastes nice by itself, but nothing came through being buried behind the biscuit.
I was unimpressed with the entire presentation. It could have been greatly improved with some sort of sauce, perhaps the spicy ranch, or even some nacho cheese.

The Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit Taco was filling, but too expensive for the few ingredients it had. It was also one-dimensional in flavor and too dry. I do give it extra points for the fluffy, biscuit, but with all the ingredients combined, it just didn’t work.
