Back in September, it was heavily rumoured that a Taco Bell would be replacing Queen Street’s The Hideout nestled between Bathurst Street and the Entertainment District. Now, an alcohol license application sign indicates that tasty sub par Mexican food will be accompanied by booze at this brand new location. Taking ownership of the late night, this fresh experience to Torontonians falls in line with the taco company’s expansion of their booze-serving properties.

Atlanta, San Francisco, Austin and Chicago are 4 of the North American markets to welcome these Taco Bell formats in recent years. A new Taco Bell on the Las Vegas Strip, the brand’s 7,000th location, features tequila, rum, vodka, whiskey, spice rum and beer alongside frozen alcoholic treats as well.

Crunchwraps and rum? Bacon Jalapeno Dippers and tequila? Your’e stomach might be churning afterwards, but these menu items are still a dream come true. As you can see in the image below captured by a Redditor, clearly some locals are unhappy about the grungey bar making way for tacos. The Hideout is however open as of a couple of weeks ago up on College Street.
