Imagine if Taco Bell gave him the names and he went vigilante.


Rambo was under no obligation to contact the police but however taco bell was if they had evidence of someone getting beat up. Especially when he contacted them they at that point were legally bound to either give him the names or give the police the names. Maybe they did maybe they did not.

best one is fries, those take 3 minutes and we all know fresh fries are worth the wait because they get soggy quick or are over-fried into little stabby crunchies like Mcdonalds.


Depending on the size of the cut of the chip, the temperature of the oil, there is no way a chip/fry takes only 3 minutes unless its those matchstick sized mini straws. A good chip takes at least 6-7 minute at the right temp. They get soggy because they were cooked in cold oil. Then under a heat lamp/warmer they dry out.

A chicken tender will cook even quicker than a chip depending on its composition. Its the additives and extenders like breadcrumbs that'll cook them quicker than a chip.

Dont believe me - look it up



All I know is that I work part-time at a Taco Bell franchise as a fryer among other duties like maintenance man, janitor, and prep cook. I make the pico de galo, put the sauce in the bottles, put the bags of beef, chicken, steak, and beans in the rethermalizer before putting them in a heated cabinet or on the line as requested.

It takes 3 minutes to fry a batch of nacho fries but I do them for 4 minutes because it gives them an extra 10 minutes shelf life before I have to drop a batch or a half batch depending on the time of day. The timer is set to 3 minutes but I only use it if they're holding on fries, meaning they have orders that are paid for.

You think Taco Bell corporate knew about employees of one Taco Bell beating someone up off of their property?

I highly doubt the employees called the police on themselves and we now know that the victim did not call them for a few days. What we don't know is why they ran after him.

Be honest now. You just like the idea of people suing large corporations.


Believe me when I say, only a business managed by idiots would give out any employee names to an angry customer calling them up. For all they know it's a nut job who may out for revenge.

Yeah, he probably should have filed a police report immediately. This being a franchise, Taco Bell corporate (Yum! brands) would have very little to nothing to do with operations policies.

Whether the alleged victim knows this or not, a police report would have been necessary for any sort of settlement in the first place; this should have been the very first thing the alleged victim should have done.

The franchisee likely has some sort of reporting procedure in place for incidents which happens on the premises of it's locations.

As you've mentioned, we don't have the context for what occurred prior to the altercation. I would not be surprised to learn that there were video surveillance on site, but without the aforementioned police report, the alleged victim has very little standing to pursue this possible evidence.

The fact that the report wasn't filed with the police immediately gives me pause in considering the alleged victim's story.

They knew when they offered up 20 dollar gift card. The store knew when they fired the gang.

Details will emerge as per timing.

I also wonder if the police received any calls that night and any contact between the police and that store and any relations between such. It sounds like perhaps someone was covering for the store but that is just my personal accusation.

That's why I replied to this thread to begin with. I gave background on life in a Taco Bell franchise but it was off-topic so I deleted it.

This would never happen in my metropolitan area. Heads would roll, even the manager of the store would get fired, relocated, or reprimanded and be under a microscope. It's not fun and games, it can be scary to work in because you can be replaced easily and you feel like your worth level is low regardless. You see people come and go, some get fired, some move on, you see how easily they are replaced.

If even one incident happened at my store there'd be hell to pay, even if it took a few weeks of process. This is just a viral story.

Thats what I dont get - ATS seems to have a large group that often talk this way. " Lawyer Up".

Is it a malaise of US society in general - wanting a huge payout rather than fair recompense?


Do you think without good legal representation a corporation or high dollar making business is going to give you the time of day?

That's why we have the police and courts. To get to the truth before any punishments are handed out.

You throw out an accusation without even knowing if it's true or not.

I'll wait until the whole story is out.

Perhaps accusation was a poor choice of wording. I too like to wait for due process.

Perhaps suspicion better describes my gut feeling.

Seems odd they would withhold the names of the employees.

Well, I guess it's the standard response these days, lawyer up and drag the companies name through the mud on social media.

Is philly a bad area? I mean all dense urban areas are wastelands to us normal folk, but is it like top 5?


Id imagine Philly is easily top 5 places where you could get a Taco Bell beat down. Wonder what he said to get them to follow him outside, not that he deserved it but he didn't just complain and leave

Thing is they did you a favor by not serving you, especially at one of those super busy locations. An order is most times incorrect and sloppily made. LOL, it takes a good company and store manager to run a busy location, they really should double schedule employees.

If this guy sues too hard, they may need to adjust the meat juice to soy ratio down to 1%

Not good

I would sue them into the next century, especially after their response..I'm sure it's going to happen.

This is the worst trade deal possibly in the entire history of trade deals.

I've had a similar incident where the employee was stealing cash by passing over more change to her boyfriend customer and not recording sales to make the register balance.

We suspected something and then I pushed her by making her work faster to the point where she quit. A week after that she tried to claim unfair dismissal. We extricated ourselves from that attempt to get unfair compensation - but after much running around and getting statements from her old employers as to her "work patterns"

A lot of effort just to keep our name clean.

If taco bell were not comfortable with givingrambothe names of the perps then they should have just called the police right then when he was present or on the phone.


So the victim all of a sudden has turned into Rambo - where do you come up with such tripe?

Fair enough - if they're pre blanched - then the 2nd cooking is quicker. I must admit I have never used those 2 basket fryers that most Chains use - we used to use a larger floor fryer and it was gas fed - electric fryers have a faster recovery.

Yeah the employees probably snapped, for no reason, and came directly at him, followed him outside, and put the beatdown on him.

He said nothing at all, ever, to make them do it. /Sarc

When's the last time you heard of people making a beeline to someone for no reason, following them outside, and beating them up for no reason at all?

I keep reading the comments "if they were black". But listen, the truth is white employees don't jump a counter and beat up black people. But black people do it and it's fine, here's $20 to shut up. Think about that.
