Where is Taco Bell originally from?

Taco Bell originated in California, United States of America. It was founded by Glen Bell, and he opened the first Taco Bell restaurant back in 1962 in Downey, California. Before Taco Bell, he originally owned and operated a hamburger stand called Bell’s Hamburgers in California, built in 1948 on the border of San Bernardino and the city of Colton. Glen opened his first taco stand, Taco Tia in 1954, selling tacos for nineteen cents (AUD$2.17 value today). For more about Glen’s story, check it out here.

Taco Bell offers a variety of Mexican-Inspired foods, including tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, other specialty items, and a variety of value menu items. Today, Taco Bell serves more than 2 billion customers each year at over 7,000 restaurants worldwide.

I have specific food allergies. What can I eat at Taco Bell?

Taco Bell recognises that a number of our customers may be sensitive to certain allergen groups. We have developed an Allergens Guide to advise to the foods at Taco Bell which may contain certain allergens, to assist guests in making an informed meal choice when they dine.

To view this guide, please visit our allergen information page here.

Although we have this guide, Taco Bell cannot guarantee that any food is 100% free of any allergen, due to the nature of fresh food preparation. Our restaurants are fast-paced and small environments, and whilst our staff take great care and pride in our preparation, due to the nature of fresh restaurant operations, it is possible that some cross-mixing of ingredients can occur within the common environments. The risk is low if you can tolerate small amounts, however we advise customers with extreme sensitivities to seek medical advice about cross contamination.

Does Taco Bell offer food that is made with no gluten containing ingredients?

Since everything at Taco Bell is made-to-order, it’s easy to customise many items to fit your lifestyle. As all our food is prepared in our kitchen with food that contains gluten, we do not recommend any of our products or gluten friendly substituted products for customers with coeliac disease. For the entire list of Taco Bell ingredients, as well as our complete list of menu information on food allergies and sensitivities, please visit our allergen information page here, or visit one of our restaurants and speak to our friendly team members!
