Have you ever driven through town, looking at all of the restaurant options but unable to decide where to stop for lunch? Maybe you consider a sandwich shop for a while, and then perhaps you wonder if a burger would be good — but decide it's too much. The next time you're not sure what to get for lunch, drive right over to the closest taco restaurant. Tacos are perhaps the perfect lunch item. Here's why.
You can order as many as you want
Some days you may be in the mood for a big lunch. Other days, you might only want a little something. If you're eating lunch with a group, there's a good chance everyone in that group has different hunger levels. Tacos accommodate this well because they're small and because most restaurants offer them a la carte, especially at lunchtime. Those with smaller appetites can order just one taco. Those who want something more can order two or three tacos. And if you've eaten your tacos and want more, you can generally add to your order pretty easily.
They're balanced and generally healthy
Are tacos truly "health food"? Probably not. But they are a fairly balanced meal. They generally contain a good source of protein, such as meat or fish. They also contain some veggies, such as cabbage and tomatoes. And the taco shell is a source of carbohydrates. You can cover all of your food groups in one order, which is great for lunchtime.
They come in a large variety
Almost everyone can find a taco they like. Most taco shops sell a good variety. The chicken lovers can order chicken, and the fish lovers can order fish. There's usually a vegetarian or vegan bean option on the menu. If you're eating lunch with a big group or even a few friends, going for tacos ensures everyone gets what they desire.
Lunch isn't usually a meal you want to spend a lot of money on. When you order tacos, the bill is generally affordable. This makes tacos an affordable workday lunch option and also a good choice if you're treating a group.
The next time you're not sure what to get for lunch, try getting tacos. You'll find them delicious, and you'll probably keep going back again and again. There are few foods more balanced and affordable that offer such taste variety at lunchtime
