LA Weekly's Description
The perennial drive-thru taco stand was actually the third restaurant started by San Bernadino's Glen Bell in the late 1950s. Today, nobody remembers Bell's ill-fated Taco Tia, but the Taco Bell brand has become synonymous with fast-food Mexican in the U.S. From its talking dog mascot (sadly retired) to tortillas fashioned from Doritos, the Bell has been nothing if not innovative. Its latest ploy to reinvent the beef ‘n' beans motif? The Cantina Bell menu, which features eight whole-food ingredients (black beans, cilantro rice, citrus-and-herb-marinated chicken, guacamole, fire-roasted corn salsa, creamy cilantro dressing, pico de gallo and romaine lettuce) that haven't previously been used in Taco Bell's standard fare. All these ingredients are served up in a line of burritos and bowls available in chicken, steak and vegetarian (no meat, double beans) as well as in side dishes. But fear not, Los Angeles diners: the same paper-wrapped tacos, burritos, and paper cups of beans-and-cheese are still on the menu. Find your nearest Taco Bell on Voice Places.
