Hash Browns for $1.00

I like the Taco Bell Dollar Cravings menu. The Hash Brown is as good if not better than McDonalds Hash Brown, and Taco Bell cooks them better,nice and crisp. The triple layer nachos, Beefy Fritos Burrito and Beefy Mini Quesadilla are good also.

Review: Taco Bell - Hash Browns


Taco Bell's version is noticeably bigger than McDonald's version; it is definitely wider and perhaps a little bit taller but it's also a little bit thin as hash browns go.


Mine's came crispy and warm and, for the most part, I enjoyed it... but, it was too thin. The thinness makes it slightly drier than most hash browns. There's very little of that fluffy, moist potato interior which is just a little weird and off-putting to me.


I'd still eat it again though.

The hash brown ($1) comes in hash brown. No sauces are included. This is where Taco Bell needs to consider bringing in sriracha ketchup or providing that mystery spicy cream sauce on the side. Sure, the hash brown is crunchy and potato-y, but so what? Everyone knows the potatoes are just the vehicle for the condiment.
