You eat at taco time, you deserve anything that they give you. Sorry, but its f**king taco time!
I mean mexi-nuggets.
Instead of being solely concerned for a single sentient being (the cow?) why don;t you extend the realm of your morals and values and find out where all your food comes from. Try a CSA, a co-op, or not giving into convenience based food while trying to uphold your sentient based values.March 24, 2009 at 7:14 pm #661615
EmmyJane – I feel you and I’m upset because you’re upset. I just regret I wasn’t there to help, as I agree those Taco Time burritos are both delicious and satisfying.
You think they’d be able to get the “bean” vs. “meat” thing right.
Also, I wonder why they stopped making breakfast burritos…those were so rad. I only got to try one of them before they stopped that service!March 24, 2009 at 7:15 pm #661616
EmmyJane – I have been a vegetarian for a very long time, mainly because of the humane factor. I have to say that I feel you are off base here for a few reasons:
1. If you don’t want to support an industry that is cruel to animals, then DON’T PATRONIZE a business that profits from selling animal flesh!
2. When you are accidentally served meat at a restaurant, the animal was already dead. You are not responsible for that death.
3. Taco Time’s “insult to your beliefs??” Come on, do you seriously think they did this on purpose? It’s called human error. Everyone has received incorrect fast food orders.
You have completely contradicted yourself here – and with an attitude. If you are “so sick of this happening” then eat at vegetarian restaurants where there is no chance of being served meat and no chance of supporting the meat industry!
I work had to change the image of vegetarians and non-cruelty beliefs to omnivores. It is people like you with these ridiculous hypocritical attitudes and judgements that set us all back. My advise to you is to stop blaming other people for your choices.March 24, 2009 at 7:16 pm #661617
i can understand the lure of convenience thta taco time offers…
but did you know there are some incredible taco stands in white center that offer the same convenience and fresher food?
there are now corn guys on 15th in white center and on Ambaun in Burien.. both are really good… but the guy in white center offers more than corn.March 24, 2009 at 7:25 pm #661618
I’m a veg, and I have to agree with Mayor Quimby on this. Yes, you asked for a “vegetarian” burrito. But Quimby is right, as great as being veg is (yea, tooting my own horn here), I’m not going to go to McDonals and only get fries (which are not vegetarian, p.s.) because I refuse to support such a business (which is a personal choice). Although I have similar beliefs about meat and animals, please realize there are other food practices that are not good for different moral issues. I’m not going to eat meat, but I am most likely not going to eat conventional grapes from Chile, either.
Remember, everyone has different beliefs and lifestyles too, and I think that assuming that Taco Time was insulting your beliefs is taking it a little too far.
As a former restaurant employee, if you are that stressed about going somewhere that may have to make extra modifications or substitutions to their dishes to meet your standards, then don’t go out to eat.
How do you know the beans you are being served at Taco Time don’t have animal fat added to them?March 24, 2009 at 7:27 pm #661619March 24, 2009 at 7:34 pm #661620
Call the authorities if it qualifies for an emergency. That’s what the woman did who didn’t get her McNuggets. …or vice versa.

wow, I didn’t realize vegetarians would gang up on each other like this – talk about go for the throat!
You sure y’all don’t like the taste of red meat?
I would seriously pay to watch this unfold in the octagon….March 24, 2009 at 7:49 pm #661622
I actually do enjoy the taste of red meat(and not afraid to admit it)! Those were the good ‘ol days of growing up on the farm…March 24, 2009 at 7:58 pm #661623
I am echoing Quimby’s thoughts but REALLY….someone working in a fast food restaurant got your order wrong and you are wondering about compensation for going against your beliefs? Taco Time a business that main profits come from ground up cows placed in a shell. Maybe this is a joke and I am buying into it. Either way, next time I order my burrito (I get the crispy kind-fried in fat) I will think of this posting.March 24, 2009 at 8:02 pm #661624March 24, 2009 at 8:04 pm #661625
This rant seems a little curious in its absurdity. It has me wondering if Taco Time serves lattes.March 24, 2009 at 8:05 pm #661626
EmmyJane – Don’t despair. No matter what you believe, someone out there is going to disagree and make every attempt to knock you down so they can demonstrate their beliefs are superior.
It’s the human way and we just can’t help ourselves! Leggo my ego!
You just need to stick to your guns and adapt to change as appropriate and necessary – for YOU. If that means switching to Taco Bell or Tacos Guaymas (omg so awesome) then so be it.
I like you and am going to Taco Time for lunch right now in your honor.March 24, 2009 at 8:10 pm #661627
maybe the real rant here should be that Taco Time gets orders wrong because 9 times out of 10 they do. And I’ve probably been there a total of 10 times in my entire life.March 24, 2009 at 8:12 pm #661628
Perhaps asking straight-away for a vegetarian burrito would have been a better idea. then the individual taking your order could have anticipated beans and not beef, or could have asked you what you meant specficially. then it would be clear what you wanted. asking for “pinto bean burrito” is strange and not likely what they are used to hearing.
is your dog vegetarian too?March 24, 2009 at 8:25 pm #661629
I guess if this is for real or as my offspring would say for real, real life. I say what I used to say customers who had a complaint. A mistake was made – what can be done to make it right with you? If not a replacement burrito then what?March 24, 2009 at 8:25 pm #661630
If the idea of getting served incorrectly is so upsetting, then yes, the only way around it is to frequent vegetarian/vegan-only establishments. EVERYONE gets their orders mixed up from time to time – it’s the nature of “fast food”.
>2. When you are accidentally served meat at a restaurant, the animal was already dead. You are not responsible for that death.
Not so. Supply = Demand. They will throw away that food, and make more. In the “big picture” scheme of things, that is creating more demand and, yes, more death (or however you wish to see it).
Supporting Vegetarian and Vegan restaurants is a great idea. Supporting restaurants that source their own meat in a humane way (Chipotle comes to mind) is also a step in the right direction – for everyone.
Oddly, my Vegan/Raw friend told me once she occasionally goes to “regular” places intentionally and orders their vegetarian fare to show that THERE IS A DEMAND for it and to support those options for the public as well. Just a thought…March 24, 2009 at 8:29 pm #661631
apparently i was way out of line. point made everyone. vegetarian has been put in her place. lets move on.March 24, 2009 at 8:37 pm #661632March 24, 2009 at 8:37 pm #661633
One more thing for the original poster, Emmy Jane, before I can move on.
Whether you’re from Idaho or not, you’re definitely not a red-neck, sorry. (gentle kidding
I am not a vegetarian, but I only eat animals that are. :)March 24, 2009 at 8:38 pm #661634
Emmy – I’m sorry that you were ganged up on.
I completely understand the frustration of getting your order only to find out it is wrong when you get home. There aren’t many things in life more infuriating, IMO.
I’m glad that Taco Time at least offered you a free meal on them. Hope you enjoy it soon. :)March 24, 2009 at 8:43 pm #661635
Perhaps an alternate title for this threat could be “Taco Time is the Wrong Time!!!”
I spent a very unpleasant day at the toilet the last time I ate Taco Time.
Never again shall I drive through there.March 24, 2009 at 8:47 pm #661636
“When you are accidentally served meat at a restaurant, the animal was already dead. You are not responsible for that death.” Hmmm…. there seems to be a lot wrong with that logic. But the important lesson to remember kids, is that when you order meat ON PURPOSE at a restaurant, they go out back and kill a live animal and so you are definitely responsible for THAT death.March 24, 2009 at 8:48 pm #661637
