  1. Tell us the truth; you’re driving down the road and you’re craving a nice meal, and you see a ‘Del Taco’, will you stop there?
    Sure! There’s a small chance that they can give me directions to a place where I can get food!
    I still don’t understand how, in Arizona, with some of the best Mexican food in the world, that isn’t in Mexico, how a place that puts tartar sauce on their fish tacos can survive.
    I guess if the Green Monster can convert to canned coffee and still get fourbucks for a glass of hot tainted milk, they figured that some idiots will buy anything! ; >

    What is a Starbucks? I have not set foot in one for over 2 years now.
