The World's Nicest Taco Bell Can Be Found in Pacifica, California
March 9, 2011 at 10:51 AM
We might not have ordered a Chalupa, Gordita, or Crunchwrap Supreme, but we’re pretty sure that the Taco Bell in Pacifica, California is definitely serving up only 100% real beef on their menu. That’s because it’s the best Taco Bell—maybe even one of the best fast food restaurants—that we’ve ever seen.
Sitting not too far outside the hustle and bustle of San Francisco, this somewhat-sleepy, somewhat-surfy town of Pacifica is a great place to enjoy the waves and sand. More importantly it’s also a nice spot to enjoy some of life’s crunchy, cheesy, and beefy treasures. Our favorite Taco Bell—and apparently Yelp’s as well—is located on the right side of the parking lot that sits within Pacifica State Beach.
The restaurant is pretty much what you’d expect at any city or suburb in the United Sates, except for one little addition. There’s a walk-up window—think drive-through for surfers—where those can grab a taco or two after a long day battling the waves of the mighty Pacific. It’s easy to find as well, as it’s just one turn off California’s Highway 1.
The place used to be an A&W before making the transition to “Mexican” cuisine. It might not be convenient for lunch this afternoon, but this is the only Taco Bell that truly makes us want to make a run for the border.
