There are few people who hate on Taco Bell harder than your boy right here. I can’t wrap my head around the fact that edible meat can cost only 79 cents. I literally cannot wrap my brain around it. Ever hear of a profit margin? Right, so, if Taco Bell is selling it to us for 79 cents, what do you think it costs them to make it? 25 cents? Maybe 30? Point being, no human should be eating MEAT that is that cheap. It just isn’t right. Which is EXACTLY why Taco Bell needs to cool their jets and get the f*ck out of our faces with this ‘Taco Bell Cantina’ bullshit. You can’t simultaneously be the dudes slinging barely edible meat, and then turn around and start getting all bougie on us. Stay in your lane TACO BELL, and leave the Chipotle-ing to the Qdobas and Moe’s of the world.
Taco Bell just opened a new Taco Bell Cantina restaurant on the Las Vegas strip.
According to Business Insider, it is the fourth such eatery Taco Bell has opened and features not only a more upscale menu, but also a completely redesigned interior. Unique to the Las Vegas branch is a retail store where diners can buy merchandise from bags to bikinis.
The menu features tapas-style sharing plates of nachos, quesadillas, and chicken fingers alongside a wide-range of customizable slushies from the restaurant’s “Freeze Wall.” Guests can choose flavors like margarita, piña colada, or berry blast and later decide to add liquor, ranging from tequila to spiced rum.
According to food blog, Eater Las Vegas, not only does the restaurant feature a sleek modern design—but guests can order from portable tablets, reducing wait times.
The restaurant also features a deejay area, a VIP lounge, and custom artwork.
The new chain of Taco Bell Cantinas are said to focus on urban environments, with a focus on digitization of their services and a localization of their interiors. Otherwise known as bougie WASP neighborhoods. Taco Bell needs to quit trying to fool everyone with their light fixtures and stainless steel and remember they are the people who created a Doritos taco and a taco shell made out of fried chicken. They are f*cking gross, and people love their grossness, so they need to go back to embracing it. F*cking Taco Bell.
