    I'm a burrito man myself. Give me that forearm sized meat vehicle that really fills you up.

    Tacos are merely foreplay.

    Homemade tacos: Soft
    Mexican place: Soft
    Fast Food: Hard. Mostly because they usually have mealy and/or soggy soft tortillas.

    It's all about the double decker tacos. Take a soft tortilla, slather on some refried beans, then stick a hard shell taco in that baby. You got that crunch without the messy eating.

    I usually get soft just because hard always breaks apart

    I really don't care, but makes me want to start a Taco night at home to add more variety

    Was expecting a cocaine thread.

    OT I like to get a hard shell then spread refried beans on a tortilla and wrap it.

    Where I'm from those are called "tacos a la gringa".

    You like it gringo style.

    Well some of us prefer the normalcy of yesterday Mister fucking Snooty Britches.

    Soft shell tacos are effeminate tacos. They are basically Confused Pitas that have been transed into mexican cuisine...

    Soft all the way. If you're going the hard shell route, you should at least go with the authentic Mexican version of hard shell where the soft tortilla is fried to a nice golden brown. Not that yellow crumbly garbage.

    I prefer hard shell. If you heat them for just the right amount of time, they won't crumble into a thousand pieces.

    I'm shy, so don't gaze at my taco.

    Soft.

    Hard-shell tacos are awkward as a motherfucker.

    You gotta tilt it sideways... Some salsa is gonna fall on the plate. Then it cracks when you bite it and half of the ground beef falls out.

    You go to bed wondering "who invented this crap at all?"

    It's all about variety. I like em with brown meat, sometimes with white meat, sometimes even fishy meat. Sometimes hard is good for a thrill, sometimes soft is comforting and relaxing. Variety is the spice of life.

    Like I said. You eat a a bunch of hard shell tacos and then afterwards you've got a plate of nachos.

    The hilarious thing is that a tostada is a legitimate Mexican dish. This is literally a hard shelled taco with the shell flat instead of, um, folded

    So all this outrage over hard shelled tacos being an abomination just comes down to shell shape. LOL

    It's all tortillas and filling anyway.

    hard shells are legit if they are handfried, and not the storebought Taco Bell style ones
    edit: all about that white corn tho, yellow is a no go

    Apples and oranges; two different dishes, not different styles, so I wouldn't put them against each other.
    I like both. Original soft tortilla taco is the better dish though.
