Eater NY critic Robert Sietsema sampled the Nacho Fries shortly after they launched in January, and was unimpressed, writing, “The sauce seems more chemical than culinary, and has little discernible taste ... The outside [of the fries] was fairly crisp, while the inside was more like instant mashed potatoes.”

Taco Bell Reveals Why It Took So Long to Get Fries on the Menu

  Taco Bell Reveals Why It Took So Long to Get Fries on the Menu Until very recently, Taco Bell stuck to a strict no-fries policy.&nbsp;Until very recently, Taco Bell stuck to a strict no-fries policy. The chain is, after all, hawking re-imagined Mexican (but highly Americanized) dishes like quesadillas, tacos (often sheathed in a Dorito shell), and burritos, as fast food. Fries were for all those boring burger chains, of which they are many, fighting amongst themselves for supremacy. But fries were the one thing that always seemed to be missing from an otherwise very delicious, and very tempting (when it comes to fast food, at least) menu.

Sietsema may not be much of a fan, but the chain’s loyal customers are clearly on board with the Nacho Fries:

The fries were intended to be a limited-edition addition to the dollar menu, but due to their popularity, Taco Bell says they’re sticking around until at least April.

Other menu items failed because they were just unappetizing, like Taco Bell's Seafood Salad or Domino's Oreo Pizza.
