Taco Bell to phase out drive-thru at some locations, adding booze”

Taco Bell will be phasing out drive-thru windows at hundreds of its locations and adding booze to the menu, according to a new report.

Taco Bell will open more than 300 new locations with revamped layouts across the country by 2022.

That means the new restaurants won't be the free-standing, drive-thru buildings we're used to from Taco Bell.

The majority of the new "urban in-line" locations will serve beer, wine, sangria, and Twisted Freezes, aka slushies with tequila, rum, or vodka.

There are already a smattering of Taco Bell locations in urban areas that offer alcohol, according to Delish, and that number is about to drastically increase.

Taco Bell outposts that now serve alcohol are in Chicago, Cleveland, San Francisco and Las Vegas.

Earlier this year, the chain partnered with Lyft, a taxi-like service.

Zeroing in on big cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, Nashville, and NY (including a plan to open at least 50 locations in Manhattan, presently there are a mere six).
