The nation saw a notable addition to fast-food value menus today: Taco Bell—the chain that is currently testing the waters with a bougie fast-casual restaurant concept—has now decided to go the dollar-menu route.
The new “$1 Dollar Cravings Menu” joins the ranks of what once was the McDonald’s Dollar Menu (which has since become the “Dollar Menu & More”), and Wendy’s “Right Price, Right Size” menu. Both the McDonald’s and Wendy’s value menus feature pricier-than-a-dollar items, ranging from $2 to $5.
There’s a total of 11 items on the Dollar Cravings menu—some items are new to customers, other have been around for a while. The chain was already shilling 99¢ Cheese Roll-Ups, Cinnamon Twists, and Cinnabons before this dirt-cheap menu came along.
For this exceptionally low-priced chain, charging $1 for some items actually represents an increase in price, notes TIME.
Regardless of whether any of these Taco Bell items are actually a good deal, here’s a look at what you can get your hands on for a dollar:
Caramel Apple Empanada
What it is: warm apple chunks and a caramel sauce in a pastry pocket
Triple Layer Nachos
What it is: tortilla chips and beans in nacho cheese and tangy red sauces
Beefy Mini Quesadilla
What it is: beef, chipotle sauce, and a three-cheese blend, wrapped in a warm tortilla
Cinnabon Delights 4-Pack
What it is: an upgrade from the two-pack Cinnabon Delights
Cheesy Bean and Rice Burrito
What it is: meatless burrito with cilantro rice, beans, nacho cheese, and jalapeño sauce
Beefy Fritos Burrito
What it is: beef burrito with cilantro rice, nacho cheese sauce, and Frito chips. No beans included.
What it is: a tostada shell topped with lettuce, beans, tangy red and chipotle sauces, and real cheese.
Shredded Chicken Mini Quesadilla
What it is: shredded chicken and a three-cheese blend, wrapped in a warm tortilla
Spicy Potato Soft Taco
What it is: warm tortilla filled with potato bites, real cheddar cheese, lettuce, and chipotle sauce
What it is: a melted three-cheese blend in a flour tortilla

Note: We are unruffled by the recurrent usage of fake cheese on this menu, and ultimately can’t judge whether it’s better than, say, McDonald’s value menu. The most exciting thing on that menu might be the Jalapeño Double Burger, for the record.
We shall eagerly await the customer verdict.
