Today the Taco Bell Triple Steak Stack was released after being gone for a few years. It looks like (at least from my Taco Bell) that it replaced the XXL Nachos.
The Triple Steak Stack is pretty simple. It has a thick, grilled flatbread piece that is about 12 inches long, with melted cheese and about 4.5 ounces of steak inside.
I paid $4.99, although you can get a combo with a drink for about $5.99, depending on location.
The Triple Steak Stack is big, although not as big as I would have hoped for a $5 meal from Taco Bell. It comes wrapped in a foil cover, which keeps the whole thing insulated.
I normally don’t get steak items from Taco Bell, because they are usually a dollar more expensive than the beef versions, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the steak. Unfortunately, I was underwelmed. The steak was plain. It had almost no flavor to it. Of what flavor it does have, the cheese sort of drowns it out.
It terms of texture, the steak tasted a lot like roast beef. I could tell it was there, but just not a lot to it. It was brased, which made it pretty tender, but too tender I feel. (It wasn’t just my opinion, but a co-worker of mine got the same thing, and we both felt strongly that the steak was lacking).
I felt myself liking the break most of all. It was fluffy and filling.
The whole Triple Steak Stack didn’t have any outstanding flavors. In terms of being filling, it was, but not to the same extent as other $5 items (like the XXL Nachos). There is definitly a lot of steak, and that is why the price is what it’s at.
Fast Food Watch Grade: 2/5
The whole presentation was very bland. Unfortunately for Taco Bell, the Triple Steak Stack should probably have stayed retired.
