The new Taco Bell Cantina, located on Raleigh’s popular Hillsborough Street, is one of only around a dozen locations scattered across the country. After opening their first Cantina location in Chicago in 2015, the chain has slowly opened other locations in cities like San Francisco, Austin and Boulder, CO. And now, the second-largest and capital city of North Carolina has been added to the list.
Not only does the new restaurant carry all the time-honored classics like burritos, chalupas and gorditas, but also features new menu items, including “shareable small plates” like cheesy bacon jalapeno poppers, chicken tenders and spicy bacon and ranch smothered potatoes.
Of course, the real star of the show is the alcoholic beverages. In addition to six beers on tap (including a hard cider), you can also enjoy a variety of “twisted freezes” – kind of like an adult slushy. You can choose from margarita, sangria, Pina colada, blue raspberry or Mountain Dew Baja blast and then add rum, tequila or vodka. For the rosė wine lovers, there’s also the BerryFrosė – a berry sangria freeze that’s mixed with rosė wine.
Plus, this Taco Bell is a little fancier than many of its “regular” locations with a patio with plenty of outdoor seating, communal tables and a colorful indoor mural that was painted by local artist, Clark Hipolito.
And even though they do still sell the normal Taco Bell-style desserts like cinnamon twists and apple empanadas, don’t forget to take advantage of their convenient location right next to Insomnia Cookies and get yourself a little treat for dessert!
