It has an urban, industrial feel. It has a live DJ. It has a festive atmosphere. It has a patio. And, in addition, to the tacos, gorditas, crunch wraps and chulapas that you’ve come to love and expect, it has beer!

It’s the new Taco Bell Cantina which opened today at 200 Euclid Avenue on Public Square in downtown Cleveland. Lines stretched out the door at opening time today but service was provided smoothly and quickly by the friendly and outgoing employees.

Situated in the long vacant Cadillac Ranch space in the old May Company building, Cleveland’s Taco Bell Cantina joins other Cantina restaurants operated by Taco Bell in San Francisco, Austin, Chicago and on the Las Vegas strip.

The first Taco Bell Cantina opened in Chicago’s Wicker Park Neighborhood in September 2015. Less than a dozen currently exist and only five other Taco Bell Cantinas serve alcohol.

Draft beers offered at the Cleveland location include Dos Equis, Miller Lite and a local microbrew of Strongsville, Ohio based Beer Kettle. In addition to the beer choices, Taco Bell Cantina offers “Twisted Freezes” – an alcoholic “slushy” beverage in a variety of flavors and mixes.

The new Taco Bell Cantina is a welcome addition to the quick service restaurant scene downtown. Congrats to our clients, Taco Bell and Yum! Brands, Inc., on a successful Cleveland opening.
