Sure, it’s not going to be the best Mexican food you can get your hands on in Bristol. Both Cargo Cantina at Wapping Wharf and Viva La Mexicana in Bedminster spring to mind first. But for those short on time and cash, Taco Bell is a welcome addition to Bristol’s fast-food scene.
The popular Mexican fast food chain first launched in America in 1962. But it has been quietly and quickly expanding across the UK in recent years. As of tomorrow (December 20), Bristol will have a Taco Bell to finally call its own – which means no more driving to Swindon, Gloucester or Newport to get your fix – as it becomes the 120th to open in the country.
Setting up on Queens Road, by the Clifton Triangle, Taco Bell will be open 12 hours a day, from 10 am to 10 pm, seven days a week. Finally, we can try the iconic Crunchwrap Supreme and discover what all the fuss is about. While, you will also be able to get your hands on tacos, quesadillas, burritos and much more.
As of 10 am tomorrow, the complete menu will be available for dining in, takeaway and collect orders. Those looking for delivery, however, will have to wait a few weeks until next year you can have Taco Bell come to you. But the fast food chain is making the trip in person more than worthwhile on its first day of opening.
The first 100 customers to turn up at Bristol’s first Taco Bell tomorrow will get a free crunchy taco when they order. This announcement comes after a mishap last week that offered free tacos for one day only at branches including Bristol, before realising the new location hasn’t opened.
