Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

Last I checked, Tacobell was a fast food restaurant. It was a meal that many could grab on the go, or perhaps stop in real quick to enjoy a quick lunch or dinner. For whatever reason, myself and many others, never considered it an actual sit down dine in restaurant. Well, it seems that Tacobell is doing a little rebranding of it’s own and wants to be known as a place that serves more than just tacos and burritos.

According to Reddit, Tacobell will soon be adding alcohol to its menu. That’s right. A location in Chicago near Madison Street Capital has the first patent to do so. It’s a, well, interesting idea to say the least. Beer, wine, and whiskey will now be added to the menu. This is quite dangerous for people who drink and get hungry. They now have the answer to both dilemmas in one place! Instead of saying hey guys lets go drink at so and so’s house, or that bar over there, people will now be adding tacobell as one more place to get hammered.

Of course, there will be some rules and guidelines. Customers cannot take alcohol out of the restaurant in a to go cup, that’s illegal. This will not be turning into some drive thru liquor store type of deal. The alcohol will also be served in a cup that’s different from other cups so that employees can differentiate. Overall, it’s going to be interesting to see what type of drinks they come up with to compliment their food menu options. It will also be interesting to see if this will help to increase sales. If it works, you might just be seeing a tacobell with alcohol at a location near you.
