    I am no food snob, but I have never had taco bell. I've had White Castle, Popeye's ( last Friday ) and other fast food. I've had truck tacos, in fact I am right now. But never had Taco Bell, and good chance I never will.

    It's a Taco Bell that will serve booze. I guess that's how you make it high end.

    They opened the first Taco Bell Cantina in my old neighborhood in Chicago, Wicker Park. In addition to the regular menu, they serve frozen alcoholic drinks and shareable apps.

    This reminds me of that old Stallone movie "Demolition Man". Soon all restaurants will be Taco Bell.

    Believe it or not, not everyone that visits Vegas wants to spend $9 on a Corona or $7 on a small shit taco and tip 20% on top of it...

    No where in the story do they describe it as "high end"

    I unrolled and looked at the "meat" inside a Taco Bell burrito. Haven't been back since...

    "Heart of the Strip" it says. Maybe in The Park development to try to grab the alcohol enthusiasts coming out of a concert or hockey game?

    I am happy to say that we will never, ever eat there. Not with real food available quite cheaply just about everywhere in town.
