Taco Stand, Bend Oregon
THE Taco StandA while back I tried to determine where you could get the best burrito in Bend Oregon and received some feedback that I needed to try a couple other places. One of those places was the locals favorite, Taco Stand. Very inexpensive burritos and large portions.
There is a great photo of the inside of the Taco Stand available in The Bulletin's review available here.
As you can see, the inside is tiny. It was packed when I went so instead of trying to be social and sit at a table with an empty seat I took my burrito to go. I was sort of out of it when I ordered and didn't realize that what I was asking for wasn't even on the menu.
"May I please have the Carnitas Burrito" - Me
"Oh you want it in a burrito? No, no, that's fine, they'll do it" - Cashier
"Oh, yeah ok, with rice and beans" - Me
"Inside? They'll do it, no problem" - Cashier
"Sweet, also can I have that echilada style" - Me
"Of course, $5.90 please" - Cashier
Perfect. I took $2 Pork taco and turned it into a six dollar burrito with all the fixins.
I should have asked for more hot sauce, you can keep the green stuff and the chunky salsa. I just want the hot stuff.
The burrito was good. It wasn't great though. I think my choice for Carnitas was where I went wrong. The enchilada sauce was great and I recommend getting your burrito enchilada style, it's a good choice. I'll definitely be back for the prices are unbeatable. I just need to find my dish.
