We've had the fresco menu here in Atlanta for several months... I love it love it love... I actually took the whole pico instead of cheese idea and applied it to my made at home tacos as well.

I love Taco Bell as well.

Unfortunately, our local TB doesn't know what Fresco means.

I can't count how many times I've ordered my food "Fresco style" and I still end up with cheese or sour cream or sauce on my food. I now have to literally tell them, for example, "A chicken soft taco with lettuce and Fresco style salsa ONLY."

I can't say "Fresco style" to those people because they have no idea what I'm talking about. I even wrote to TB TWICE and complained about that and I assumed they would contact that particular TB and get it rectified, but nope - they still screw my order up every time. Yes, they add the Fresco salsa - along with the cheese/sauce/sour cream.

To them, Fresco style means add the salsa, but don't remove any other ingredients. It really p's me off.

The TB I go to also does not understand what fresco style is. If I'm lucky they will remove the cheese, but the sour cream is usually still there. I even went through the drive through at the TB near work last week and ordered a Fresco bean burrito (which was on the menu, under the freso section) and the lady rudely snapped back that they don't do fresco there. Then, um, why is it on your menu? How hard is it to sub salsa for cheese??

I have the same problem with our TB.

And you'd think it would be EASIER to slap on just salsa instead of cheese and sour cream.

We have had the fresco menu for awhile. I love it. 3 crunchy tacos for 9 points is worth it to me when I'm having one of those days.

Welcome, shai4u. This is a great place.

I think you have to post for a while before you can get a signature and weight tracker. They require that because some jerks have come in here and either spammed or left a virus or something.

However, try Ticker Factory.

We've had the Fresco style for quite a while. They actually have the little brochures in the restaurant. Try taking one of those up to the register and point to what you want.

You might have to get hold of the district manager.

You can also go on line with your receipt number and file a complaint. If they get enough complaints about a single location, someone will have to pay attention.

even though I'm dieting, I still eat cheesy bean and rice burritos every once in a while. They're big enough to be a whole meal, lots of protein to make me full for a long time, and it only has 460 calories (which is pretty much what I eat for a meal anyway). Yum.

Can't beat a meal for $1.29
