It’s a Christmas Miracle!

TBell KFC Open!, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

My prayers have been answered. Hallelujah. Hallelujah, that is one weird word to type out, but an apt one for how I am feeling. The Taco Bell/KFC has reopened on 14th Street just south of U Street. Thanks to a reader for alerting me. You will not be dissapointed when you go back. The basic layout is the same but the look is rather futuristic. It feels like at least 2009 in there now. The chairs are a nice silver and some of the walls are painted a nice shade of fire engine red. To top it off the staff now sport fresh new red shirts with sweet racing stripes down the arm. All in all a much cleaner feeling than before.

Now for the food. I started with a beef meximelt. At first I was very frightened because the meximelt was not on the menu but, remember this tip, just ask for one and they’ll make you one even though it’s not written on the menu. I had a fountain Dr. Pepper which nicely complimented the hot sauce on the meximelt. For the second course I had another meximelt. Why mess with perfection right? To top it all off I had a Nachos Supreme. It was perfect. The cheese to meat to beans to sour cream ratio was spectacular. It was as though an artist crafted this particular plate of nachos. Despite the fact that I felt rather ill a couple hours after consumption I still highly recommend you make the trip and don’t forget to ask for a meximelt.

  • taco bell and kfc are f’n disgusting. i can’t believe you eat that sh*t.

    I can’t believe you kept saying “meat” as if they actually use it.

  • Good for you, PoP, for having something simple make you so happy. Right now I could use something I could say “Hallelujah” about.

  • Hey, PoP, if you’re happy, I’m happy :o)

  • Sigh…I wish I could be one of those people to think Taco Bell is disgusting, but truth be told, I’d eat it for every meal every day if I could. And die fat and happy.

  • I second that one anon!

  • I love the beef meximelt. Good choice.

  • Heart Attack
    Heart Attack
    who’s going to turn 45 and have a heart attack and wonder why?

  • man, i forgot about the meximelt. my boy in college was addicted to those for a minute and introduced me to them… me though, i’m more excited about the kfc. i loves me some of that. speaking of heart attack, i may have to hit that up soon.

  • I used to go in there back when they first opened & ask if they’d deep-fry me a taco in the chicken fryer. For some reason they never would. I think it was the first combination KFC/Taco Bell in the city & I remember being a little disappointed there wasn’t more ‘crossover’ on the menu.

  • SPeaking about a Christmas miracle and totally non-sequitur, why not do a posting about the great Christmas lights in Petworth, especially on some of the side streets? Some blocks have such great displays of lights and decorations that it’s worth a trip in the evening just to see them.
