Holy cow, 1380 calories (680 from fat) in that volcano box.

Actually a bit less than I expected.

Had it tonight - the Volcano Box. It's a good meal, not a ton of food, but enough.

Wait a second now... is the caloric content based on the photos, or what you actually get? (: I had two regular hard shell beef tacos a few days ago, and the meat didn't start until a good inch in from each side of the shell, and it wasn't even an inch high through the middle. So look at it this way; with how they skimp on the actual meat products, it might not be as bad for you as they say!

@chrisfranz:
not enough? That is about the number of calories that I am currently eating in an entire day.

Taco Bell is so hit and miss when it comes to food quality. At times I will have it and absolutely love it and at other times I will have it and I can't choke it down.

Good deal on food though!

How is this useful? Wish I could downvote...

I'm at the Pizza Hut.
What?
I'm at the Taco Bell.
Uh...
I'm at the combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.

A $5 NBA box for $5? That's a STEAL!

@johnsonjf: Agreed. The one here locally doesn't do justice to one I stopped at on vacation one time. My 7-layer burrito weighed about 3 lbs and my soft taco had about a half pound of meat. I pinpointed it as a place of interest on my GPS for future reference...

Folks, both combinations bring in order 1200 calories. The fat and sodium content are both staggering!

I recently had a heart attack. The first thing I stopped eating was Taco Bell - way too much sodium. If this was a year ago I'd be over at Taco Bell now - can't beat that for $5 (just stay healthy folks).

Cow in a blender, yuck. I wish Taco Bell would offer chicken or vegetarian options on some of these box deals-- they could include one less item to make up the extra cost of the chicken. But if you like ground beef this is a great deal. As for me, I will stay with the Cabana Bowl at Taco Cabana. Taco salad shell, beans (charro, refried or healthy black beans), rice, chicken (or ground beef), sour cream and guacamole, plus all the fresh made salsa you want for $3.

Yes, where else are you going to get that much fat for $5?

Saying that these are unhealthy is subjective. I'm an athlete and one of these boxes comes in at under a third of my daily necessary caloric intake just to maintain my current muscle mass and body chemistry. A little high on fat, but you can burn it off. High on sodium, but you can sweat it out.

This is a great deal. I'll be enjoying one very soon.

Hahaha... I just had the Volcano Box. Really hit the spot too!

@nathanjr76: Uh, that's called a Taco Hut. If combined with the other chain they own (KFC) it's a KenTacoHut.

Wow, a $5 meal for $5!! What a deal!! It would be better if you could get like 2 for $10! Oh wait, I called them and not only can you get 2 for $10, but you can get FOUR for $20!!!

yeah I've found that Taco Bells operated by corporate taste like ass compared to local ran Taco Bells, local TB's prices are cheaper to!
price for a med drink at corp own TB 1.49 = price for extra large drink at local TB and most of their combos are $1 to $1.75 cheaper at the local TB!

Does anyone know of any $5 deals that I can get for $5????

My issue is not the food in the $5.00 box, it's the box. The Taco Bell here in Durham, NC on North Duke Street put my food in a bag. I was disappointed because I was expecting a box. My question: is it a $5.00 box or a $5.00 bag of food. if I don't receive a box, then I have to suggest that it's false advertizment.
