Taco Bell is going to cater to "foodies" -- which kind of cracks me up because are foodies interested in a tequila-infused milkshake? Somehow, I doubt it. I'm interested in it, but I'm not a foodie. Or classy, really.
The first one is opening in Huntington Beach, CA -- which is only famous to me because it's the beach I stare at on the live feed while I wait for Elle in "Hollister."
Mexican food is my absolute favorite, and I'm not sure I'd go to an upscale Taco Bell versus a real hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint. Do you know how great the Mexican food is in Southern California? I'm not sure I could pick Upscale Taco Bell over the real thing -- wonder why they didn't try this in say, Ohio.
I do love the combo of fast food restaurants being more upscale. Love that you can get an agave margarita at Chipotle's -- wonder if that's who they're competing with?
Anyway, we were invited to stay with friends this summer for a Disney trip -- so who knows? On a sidenote, have you tried the Limeade Sparkler at Taco Bell? Admission: I get one on the way to Fry's Electronics when I go with my boys. They hate Taco Bell. Who raised them?
Our McDonald's is pretty fancy now, with a cafe and free wi-fi. Although, the "no-loitering past 30 minutes without food" sign takes away from the ambiance.
