Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to tonight’s main event! Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, home of Fuzzy’s Butt Burnin’ Hot Sauce, is pleased to announce the showdown to end all showdowns. Today we settle the score between two meal-time favorites, a rivalry that pits an American classic against a Tex-Mex staple.
In the far corner: hailing from Hamburg, Germany, perfected in America, draped in American cheese, wearing lettuce and tomato and flaunting its buns … the hamburger!
And in this corner: representing Texas and Mexico (Texico?), wrapped in a tortilla, smothered in queso and renowned for its kick … the taco!
Okay, but seriously, here’s why tacos are better than burgers, no contest.
Oh, the Possibilities!
With tacos, the sky’s the limit. You are by no means stuck with one choice of meat. At Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, for example, you can choose from shredded chicken, shredded beef, special ground beef, shredded spicy pork, grilled fish, tempura fish, grilled shrimp, tempura shrimp, crawfish, chicken fajita and beef fajita.
What are your options with a burger patty? Maybe Kobe beef? That’s expensive. And you can do a turkey burger or something called “quinoa,” but that kind of defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? (If you are a health nut, we do have a grilled veggie taco, just sayin’.)
As far as toppings go, one could argue tacos and burgers can go toe to toe in that round. Throw in taco’s protein options (and veggies) into the ring, however, and the combinations are almost endless.
More Bang for Your Buck
What does the average burger cost these days? $6? $8? You could hit up the nearest fast-food value menu for cheaper burgers, but you get what you pay for.
Tacos are almost always less expensive, and you can get two to three tacos for every one burger, pricewise. That gives you plenty of room to experiment with different meats, cheeses, sauces and more. Your $8 goes a lot further at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop than it does at the burger joint down the street.
Tacos can be enjoyed at any point in the day. Naturally, they’re a viable lunch or dinner option, but a taco for breakfast? Is there a better way to start the morning than eggs, cheese, meat and hot sauce wrapped in a tortilla and sitting next to others just like it?
I submit that no, there is not.
Clever restaurateurs will stick a fried egg on a burger and call it breakfast, but they’re not fooling anyone. Breakfast tacos are not only delicious, but also a completely separate entity than their lunch and dinner brethren.
Like we said, the sky’s the limit.
That’s a third-round knockout for tacos over burgers. Come on in to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop to get a taste of the champ.
