    For those who are interested, It will be located on the Strip at Harmon, across for the Cosmo. Suppose to open "in the Fall".

    It may save the night, but (no pun intended) it's the next day that I'm worried about. :poke:

    I thought we already had "high-end" Taco Bells they are called El Torito and Acapulco (at least here in California )

    lol!!!!

    With a taqueria or carniceria on seemingly every corner, I'm amazed those places make it. But it guess they work when folks visit from Red Deer, Alberta.

    Ate at McDonalds in Paris (France) and it was great. Waitresses were great and offered us macarons and coffee for dessert and we never got up off the table for anything.

    LOL! Cant help you on the effect the next day, but I would assume the alcohol didnt help.:poke:

    So funny, I have family in Red Deer and when they visit they always want to eat at those places. :kill:

    Apparently it's next door to PHO, near where the McD's is now. Fairly high-traffic area. I can remember Taco Bell from the 90's on the Strip. I always wondered why they left.

    LOL, it made the news here today. (Twirling index finger.) They said it was the only Taco Bell with a bar.

    So, high end would hopefully mean "real beef"? Not just horse meat with a sawdust filler?

    I always have a laugh at the snobs making fun of taco bell or other fast food "Mexican" joints, it's not like we don't know it's not authentic food, maybe were in a hurry at lunch or passing through going somewhere else or.....well any innumerable reasons judging by their huge sales volume.. We all know where the authentic joints are and 98% don't have drive thru or can serve us in 2 minutes....get over yourselves

    I have been wanting a Taco Bell on the Strip for about two years.
    When we get drunk playing cards at home we have to get my friend's teenage daughter to get us some tacos. It's delicious when I'm on whiskey.

    Maybe it's just me but I just don't want to do restaurant chains when I'm in Vegas. Since I haven't done a TB in at least 25 years I won't start now.

    This! When I'm in Las Vegas I want something VEGAS and not something I can get in any major city, let alone in any small town with more than one stoplight!

    I love Mexican food. I'm from Chicago & we have some super original Mex food. But in Vegas a late night drunk will make some Taco Bell taste
    pretty good.
