It's healthier, tastes better, and had a more friendly mascot. Also, think outside the bun. Taco Bell hasn't had lawsuits for making people obese or killing them, while McDonald's has had more than a handfull.

There are plenty of Taco Bells through all of Canada, and even one recently opened in Montreal on the west island, and there are 20 more planned to open within the next two to three years. Theres Taco Bell in Europe, Asia, and Australia.

McDonald's has faced lawsuits of defamation, copyright infringement, illegal employment of children as well as over-working children.

McDonald's has served more customers because McDonald's has been around since 1940, while Taco Bell has only been around since 1962. And I even know a guy who used to own a McDonald's the "meat" they used is only 60% beef, the rest is grains and injected vitamins. The "special sauce" is actually ketchup and mayo mixed together.

McDonald's has been sued by everyone, even my Mom.

This is about the restaurants in general, not their charities. It's like comparing Microsoft to Apple and voting for Microsoft just because they donate more to charities and cancer research.

Taco Bell tastes better and doesn't have regurgitation surpressing chemicals in them like McDonald's.

As an employee of Taco Bell I can tell you that they do give to charities. While not at the same level as McDonald's they give millions of dollars to the Boys and Girls club of America and reward very generous scholarships to deserving employees.

Also the Taco Bell dog is more friendly than Ronald McDonald. I was afraid of clowns growing up and so are many other people, my fear is gone now but Ronald used to scare the crap out of me now tell me Ronald isn't scary!

Taco Bell FTW. Their food is more moist which makes it better. Mc Donalds no matter where you go drys your mouth to sh*t. I used to be a hardcore Mc Donalds eater then I just started realizing how nasty the sh*t was. Another think I don't like is that Mc Donalds is a powerful symbol for the strongest militaristic brand in the whole world... AMERICA.

This is where the argument begins and ends.

McDonald's serves Coca Cola. Taco Bell serves Pepsi. McDonald's wins.

Mc.Donalds can be found all over the world. Where as Taco Bells only can be found in the US and some rare places outside the US.

Taco bell is not "healthier" than Mcdonalds. First, ive never heard of anyone getting E coli from Mcdonalds, only from Taco smell.

http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=78069

second, mcdonalds not only tastes better, served more customers, which says alot about them, but also uses "better" quality meat. maybe not much better, but better.
i always get discusted when i eat taco bell, and mcdonalds i only get disgusted one out of three times i eat there. these are just a few of the reasons why mcdonalds is a better place to eat. besides the fact that mcdonalds also caters to kids, although that might be a bad thing, getting kids addicted to mcdoanlds early on, they have locations with ball pits and play sets of sorts wooohoo.

But still the PR-machine of McDonalds is working overtime, why because everybody keeps telling that McDonalds is best, is the cause of the fact that a lot of people are fat. But still, people are eating McDonalds on their own and are not forced to do so. This can only be explained with one reason: people like McDonalds.

McDonalds also gives a lot to charity: Ronald McDonald-house. When will we see the first Taco Bell-house?

The main reason Taco Bell hasn't has any lawsuits is that they're not as big as McDonald's and thus not as large a target.

They have been the target of protests by farm labor advocates because they insist on buying their tomatoes from farmers who abuse their laborers (like not providing them enough water to drink on a hot day or denying them access to toilets).

Nope. Instead they put MSG in their sauces, which is a nerve toxin, to deaden the taste receptors in your mouth so you can't tell it's really awful tasting.

lawsuits have come and mcdonalds almost always loses. God forbid you make a decision and hold yourself liable for your actions , rather than dish out the blame to any sources other than yourself. mcdonalds is to blame for my obesity, or my coffee was too hot and burned me... shut the f**k up and start taking responsibilty for your actions; if your fat, exercise and stop eating mcdonalds. if you dont want your coffee hot make it yourself etc...

the argument is mcdonalds vs tacobell, and lawsuits do not matter to me when considering a restaurant for my next meal because our contry is so filled with obsurdly frivilous lawsuits that have no cap and limitation to the harm they are consequently affecting on the entire system of law, which inevitably trickels down to you and me.

whats important to me when choosing one place over the other, is how satisfied i am with the meal. mcdoanlds has fries that are amazing and nuggets that are the best in the world especially with the hot mustard or barbeque sauce, sick cheese burgers, a broader menu and most importantly they serve COKE not pepsi, like taco bell.

its not about how many locations they have , a catagory in which mcdonalds obviously destroys taco bell in. to me, its about the french fries and coke, not some mystery meat wrapped, so you cant see it, in a dough of sorts with nasty vegetables and cheeses. and btw, great mascot a f**kin sickly dog, that dog is probably one of the ingredients in the gordita.
