We all know Taco Bell makes the best drunk food, stoner food, and hangover food on earth. That’s the fast food Triple Crown, right there. It’s amazingly cheap, fills you up, and keeps bringing pleasant surprises to its revolving menu, too.
Thing is about Taco Bell’s ever-changing menu is this: there are a lot of options. So we thought we’d ask the masses what they think about which items taste best. We headed over to Ranker to find out what the people love the most when they hit up The Bell. The crowd came up with a pretty solid list if you ask us.

10. Chalupa Supreme
Ah, the Chalupa Supreme. The fried bread crust, middling ground beef, sour cream, iceberg and tomato, and shredded yellow cheese hits a sweet spot. It’s okay, filling, and cheap. Is it the best? No, it’s a little greasy and heavy. That’s probably why it’s tenth.
9. Chicken Quesadilla
Amazingly, this is the only quesadilla to rank in the top ten, which — we call shenanigans. The Supreme Steak Quesadilla is always the way to go here. Though, if you start customizing the plain ol’ chicken quesadilla, we suppose you can get somewhere super tasty (start by making it Supreme and then add some guacamole).
8. Beefy Nacho Griller
The combination of ground beef, nacho cheese, and “red strips” is a delicious abomination. The red tortilla chip strips add a surprisingly nice crunch here, helping this thin burrito stand out.
7. Beefy Fritos Burrito
This is a hefty burrito for a dollar. The combo of rice, beef, nacho cheese, and Fritos is stoner food perfected. Similar to the above, the addition of salty and crunchy corn chips really amps things up in a way that doesn’t make sense on paper. Yet, here we are.
6. Beefy 5-Layer Burrito
The Beefy 5-Layer Burrito isn’t as “beefy” as it could be but what more can you ask for only two dollars? The mix of ground beef, refried beans, shredded cheese, nacho cheese, and sour cream hits the spot. But why get one Beefy 5-Layer when you can get two Beefy Fritos for the same price? Oh, yeah, double cheese, that’s why.
5. Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch
A classic Doritos Locos Taco sandwiched in a Gordita with plenty of nacho cheese smeared in between? Sign us up! This is pretty carb-heavy but that extra layer of nacho cheese is hard to argue with.
4. Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos
This feels like the nachos you make in the microwave when you’re in college and deeply stoned. Doritos, check. Nacho cheese, check. Faintly seasoned ground meat, check. A smattering of lettuce so it’s “healthy,” check. Now, put that into taco form and tell us you don’t want one.
Image a small burrito stuffed with rice, ground meat, and sour cream. Next, image a shredded cheese and nacho cheese quesadilla. Now, image wrapping that already wrapped burrito with that quesadilla. It’s oddly hypnotic and predictably delicious when you’re wasted.
2. Crunchwrap Supreme
This one will fill you up for $3.50. There’s a layer of ground meat and nacho cheese on the bottom. Then there’s a layer of tortilla chip/hard taco shell followed by a layer of lettuce, tomato, and sour cream. That’s all wrapped up in a big flour tortilla and pressed in a grill. Dare we say, this is pretty good. Even sober.
1. Cheesy Gordita Crunch
The classic Cheesy Gordita Crunch has one thing going for it that the Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch doesn’t: Spicy Ranch. Taco Bell’s sauces are where the fast food chain shines. So, yeah, we can see the Cheesy Gordita Crunch taking a top spot for leaning into the wonders of Spicy Ranch (though we’d probably swap that out for Creamy Jalapeño Sauce, but that’s just us).
