Taco Bell’s Cantina restaurants have been fan-favorite destinations since they first debuted in 2015. Today, Taco Bell has 43 Cantina and Urban In-line restaurants from Las Vegas to Manhattan. Equally as unique as they are innovative, these signature restaurant locations reflect what’s to come from the brand that defined a true social dining experience.
Thanks to Taco Bell Cantinas, bustling city-dwellers in New York can access self-service kiosks to get their tacos on-the-go, while squads can hit the Las Vegas Strip for a restaurant that not only accommodates a DJ, but also a wedding chapel where 165-plus couples have gotten hitched. The brand has no plans of slowing down their urban restaurants, with plans to open new Cantina locations in areas such as Boston, Sacramento, Fort Lauderdale and more throughout the remainder of 2019 alone.
Kicking off a Cantina-filled summer is the Taco Bell in Pacifica, California. Located on the sandy shores of Linda Mar, this fan-favorite Taco Bell has been a part of the Pacifica community since the 1980s. This summer, Taco Bell, together with franchisee Golden Gate Bell, remodeled the famous surfer spot to become the brand’s first ever free-standing Cantina restaurant. The updates include everything from a new interior with a mural created by local San Francisco street artist Nora Bruhn, to an indoor/outdoor fireplace. The exterior features a walk-up window on the deck for surfers and sandy beachgoers to quickly order their food and enjoy al fresco. Similar to other Cantina restaurants, the Pacifica location also features twisted freezes, local beer, and shareable menu items.
While known for its oceanfront views worthy of a summer road trip, the restaurant will also be one of Taco Bell’s first Cantinas to have recycling and compost bins, keeping the beaches clean and photo-worthy for years to come.
