Taco Bell to get rid of drive-thru, add booze

Your late night craving for a Taco Bell crunchwrap may soon be without the convenience of a drive-thru window. Currently, there are already roughly 6,000 Taco Bell restaurants nationwide, but expanding the urban footprint, in particular, makes sense.

The fast-food chain plans to open between 300 and 350 "urban in line" locations by 2022, a Taco Bell spokesperson told FOX 8 News on Tuesday.

These fast food restaurants will not have drive-thrus and will serve up booze, according to Food & Wine.

Taco Bell will reportedly open between 300 and 350 locations in big cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, Nashville and NY.

Slovenia beat Serbia and won their first Eurobasket
But Slovenia , which had upset pre-tournament favorite Spain 92-72 in the semifinals, refused to fold. Kokoskov, also the assistant coach for the Utah Jazz, gave a nod to his boss - coach Quin Snyder.

"One of the cool things happening in America right now is the revitalization of urban areas, and we're seeing millennials moving into downtown areas", Taco Bell CEO Mike Grams said in the report.

Taco Bell is about to get a little boozier and lot more accessible. The layout for the locations seem to resemble Chipotle more than a traditional Taco Bell, with an "urban in-line" and "cantina" style designed with artwork, open kitchens, and digital menu boards.

Another interesting point: According to Food & Wine, the chain's drive-thrus make up around 55 to 70 percent of its revenue.
