Good! Food is good, but the employees use their naked hands, sores, bandages and all to make the food. Never any soap in the bathroom and never uses rubber gloves. Bring it to the attention of the manager and they always become obstinate. I like the food, but cannot watch them make it with the nasty conditions. Two employees were sitting on the curb in the parking lot at DeLand, Florida recently and when they finished their break, they walked in and one grabbed the register to begin taking orders,(customers backed up waiting for him to return) and the other jumped on the food line without washing his hands. Makes me GAG!

I think all of this trans fat crap is just that crap.
I mean come on people, what kind of spoiled ass babies have we become when WE demand that a fast food joint makes their food less unhealthy? What the hell ever happeded to personal accountability?
Some cities are now even making it law that no trans fatty acids are used in the preparation of their....we are one item at a time allowing, and actually pushing, our government in to a big brother society.
Wake the hell up and take responsibility for our own actions and quit blaming binky the cheeseburger clown for us becoming the fattest, unhealthiest country in the world!

This is great! A fine example of free enterprise. People want no trans-fat and Taco Bell's giving them what they want. Think I'll stop in Monday for lunch!
