Taco Bell Cantina plans to open in December

Site will be former Wendy's location on State St.

Get ready for a boozier version of Taco Bell, as the Bell American Group plans to open a Taco Bell Cantina on State Street in the former Wendy’s location this December.

Taco Bell Cantina continues serving its full menu of tacos, burritos, nachos and specialties, but it also provides beer, liquor and wine, according to its business plan submitted to the Alcohol License Review Committee.

Unlike many other Taco Bells, this Taco Bell Cantina will not have drive-thru, catering mainly to pedestrians and visitors walking down State Street.

The restaurant will have a more expansive drink menu and include specials unique only to Cantina locations like the pina colada freeze, mini quesadilla nachos, cantina seven layer dip and the poppin’ candy freeze.

The Alcohol License Review Committee will address the Taco Bell Cantina at its Oct. 31 meeting.
