Taco Bell is an American chain of fast-food restaurants based in Irvine, California. A subsidiary of Yum!

Taco Bell serves more than 2 billion customers each year in more than 6,500 restaurants mostly in the U.S., however the United Kingdom has not missed out on its Tex-Mex delights as in 1986, a location was opened in London on Coventry Street (between Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus) followed by a second location in Earls Court near the Earl's Court tube station. Taco Bell sites in the UK in operation at the Strategic Air Command and United States Air Force bases at RAF Mildenhall and RAF Lakenheath and whilst visiting Gary I got to try a taste of Taco Bell.
