Taco Bell and “luxury” aren’t usually used as synonyms, but in Pacifica, Calif., they basically mean the same thing.
At least, that’s according to TikTok. Users on the app have been swarming to the chain’s gorgeous, seaside location, with some calling it the “nicest Taco Bell in the world.”
So what makes the place so legendary? First of all, it’s a Taco Bell Cantina, meaning it serves alcohol. According to TikTok user Megan Homme, who visited the restaurant earlier this month, you can add alcohol to “pretty much any drink” on the menu.
Homme’s clip, which shows just how “boujee” the location really is, has been viewed more than 650,000 times. It’s easy to see why, too. Her TikTok shows off the restaurant’s sprawling beachside view and its interior — which has a full-on glass fireplace.
As the video shows, the Pacifica Taco Bell is getting a lot of help from its environment. The restaurant sits directly on the Pacifica State Beach and even has a spot for surfers to “park” their boards.
The Taco Bell has been a staple in the area for years, but it only recently got its legendary makeover. According to Eater San Francisco, the location reopened as a Cantina location in July of 2019, a makeover that came complete with its own hype-up video.
TikTok users had plenty of thoughts about the location. A few said the restaurant was “overrated,” but most were extremely positive.
“I’ve been DYING to go there,” one user wrote.
“It’s for sure the best Taco Bell in the world,” another added.
“I love that place! Such amazing views,” another wrote.
It’s tough to say for sure how many Taco Bells are nicer than the Pacifica location, but one thing is clear: It has some fierce competition.
In October, TikTok users were sharing their obsession with a “high end” Taco Bell in China. Meanwhile, the fact that there’s a literal Taco Bell hotel in Palm Springs, Calif., means West Coast fast food lovers have plenty of options to choose from.
