This year restaurant chains took the concept of extreme food to a new level, from donuts-as-bread to crazy cheesy crusts.

Waffle Taco

2013 food waffle taco bell
  • Chain: Taco Bell

The Mexican fast food joint proved it could make anything into a taco this year with the Waffle Taco--a waffle encompassing scrambled eggs and sausage (syrup available on the side). Don't be surprised if you haven't come across this creation. It's part of Taco Bell's larger efforts to break into the breakfast market -- about 800 restaurants currently serve breakfast, with a goal of launching the meal nationally in 2014.

Notable Review: "Once I got far enough in to have a composed bite, the party was over. If they could, my taste buds would have called the cops." - Serious Eats
