In the realm of dining, some things are universal: everybody loves McDonald’s french fries, for instance. Other things, however, are strictly local, as evidenced by GeeGuy’s endorsement of Taco Treat: “Since I am a local, born and raised, I have been a Taco Treat fan since before I can remember.” Amen. Just about everybody that I know that is a true “local” feels the same way about Taco Treat. My girlfriend, for instance, who is also a true “born and raised” local. Case in point: when her high-school buddy came back to visit Great Falls for New Year’s Eve, the first thing that they did when he got off the plane was head to Taco Treat.
Me – well, despite the fact that I now consider myself a true citizen of Great Falls (approaching 6 years!), the wonders of Taco Treat still elude me. I’ve tried it – and the Amigo, too. I just don’t get it. To be honest, I’d rather grab some Taco Bell. But fortunately, I have found ONE thing at Taco Treat to enjoy: Krust-Os! Crispy, cinnamony, snacky; and with a name like that, what’s not to love?
The only other place that I can think of that falls into this same “gotta be raised on it” category is Borrie’s, with the pasta sauce that only locals can love (I’m learning to love it). OK, so let’s hear it: what other eateries around town fall into this category?
