Went to Taco Bell today, 2 days after they advertised the $5.00 Box during the super bowl.  I ordered one and it cost $6.79 plus tax.  This is a total rip off and false advertising.  The goverment should do something about it.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

They should be fined for their actions

AUTHOR: Laura - (USA)

This is a violation of every customer's rights.  This is not a case of some locations not participating, since the company goes as far as to call the product the "$5 BOX."  That means it costs five dollars, and if it doesn't, it can't be called that.  I hope you obtained some compensation from corporate for your hardship. 


Most often when a fast food customer pays a number that doesn't sound right it is because a single worker, group of workers or even the manager is supplementing their low wages by fabricating charges and pocketing the difference.  Everyone knows fast food workers are largely ex-cons that know how to run a scam, and teenagers naive enough to join in.  On those grounds, make sure corporate knows what you were charged for what items.

Seriously......is this all you have to complain about in your day??  Read some of the legitimate reports here.....reports where people are out thousands of dollar through no fault of their own. Get a grip....stop eating at these slop joints......the food is nasty anyway.....and not at all good for a body.
