The restaurant of our dreams became a reality in November of 2016 became a reality. Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the brand new 24/7 Taco Bell Cantina exceeds expectations for a typical fast-food joint. Want to know what all the fuss is about? Read on and fall in love with tacos all over again.
Close your eyes and picture yourself in Vegas. Done? Now imagine walking into a two-story cantina with a very sophisticated design, one-of-a-kind artwork, and even a DJ booth! But it doesn’t end there, this flagship store also features a VIP lounge, outdoor patio seating, portable tablets to take orders, and 16 large TV screens – so you will never a miss a moment in Sin City.
Besides, for those that are fans of the Taco Bell brand, this cantina comes with a Taco gift shop. Here, visitors can purchase exclusive items like shot glasses, shirts, and taco hats that can’t be bought anywhere else.
Let’s Taco ‘Bout The Menu
First, those with a tight budget won’t have to worry! According to Yelp, most of the menu items are under $10 USD. The new Cantina offers the same Taco Bell menu items as in regular stores across the U.S. with the delightful addition of shareable appetizers such as mini quesadillas and chicken tenders. The best part? You can watch the chefs make your food thanks to a modern open kitchen design.
Finally, as the name “Cantina” suggests, beer is available for anyone over 21, plus they offer alcoholic add-ons like rum and vodka to their eight exclusive Twisted Freezes.
No, you did not read wrong. You’ll be able to get married at the Taco Bell Cantina starting in Summer 2017! If your love for tacos (and your fiancee) goes above and beyond, you can order one wedding right off the menu. The cost of this wedding package will run at $600 which includes the couple’s first meal, a wedding at the cantina chapel, Taco Bell swag for the newlyweds and more.
A couple of weeks ago, Taco Bell ran a contest called Love and Tacos. The idea was to find that fascinating love story that deserves to be the first couple to get married at this Las Vegas cantina. Submissions are already closed, but voting began March 1, 2017. The winners will get a wedding package like the one mentioned above plus they will be awarded hotel stay and free access to a unique club in Las Vegas.
By voting for the best love story, you’ll immediately enter to win a wedding crash package for two including airfare, hotel stay and $500 in stipends.
If that sounds like the wedding crash of your dreams, start voting and best of luck!
