One dog replaces another. It was kept in the canine family.

this guy made it through all the chewing to not bite down on one bone and managed to swallow 2 out of 3?? Hard to believe, or maybe it's me
Maybe eats like a snake and just swallows whole.

I was a store manager at Taco Bell. There is no way there is ANY bones of ANY kind. The food comes in boiling bags and then they place them in the hot water and then they put it on the prep station. There is no bones in the store like KFC. This is the craziest store ever.
You cannot say that.I once ordered a chicken burrito from Hampton, Taco Bell(Mercury Blvd), and I found a piece of a broom stick in it.I showed it to the manager and declined another one.How it got there who knows.

That's odd because later that evening a piece of burrito was discovered on a broom handle.
That's because you used it to bash "Lupe" in the head when you were unhappy with the way he cut your lawn.

Darn. I thought the frivilous lawsuits were coming to an end.

Taco Bell should countersue this guy for being a dumb-a5$ crook and scam artist like all the others.

I enjoy eating 'plain' Tacos @ Taco Bell. I just eat 4 or 5 just with nothing but the meat & shell. I have never experienced any difficulty. Much about nothing imo.

The dog was offensive to our neighbors to the south. Taco Bell decided to offend them by selling crappy fake Mexican food instead.

Try Chewing. A preventive measure of choking on bones that are in your food.
THANK YOU! My first though too. Chew your food before swallowing and you will know if there is anything as hard as a bone in it.

I believe that Taco Bell is co-located with a KFC. There are certainly bones in chicken, and therefore "in the store".
Not all stores share space - also some Taco Bell locations share space with Pizza Hut --- Pizza Bones?
