Taco Bell launches a Grilled Cheese Dipping Taco inspired by birria

The addition to the chain’s growing grilled cheese platform debuts Aug. 3, boasting double the cheese, a new protein and two dips.


Why Taco Bell thinks it can get just as big as McDonald's

The Mexican fast-food chain, the nation’s fourth-largest restaurant brand, believes there’s “no reason” it can’t have the same number of restaurants in the U.S. as the Golden Arches.

Here are the largest Mexican chains in the country based on their 2022 U.S. system sales, according to the Technomic Top 500 Chain Restaurant Report.

Fast-casual taco concepts have more-elevated fare, bars and breakfast. And though the landscape in this niche is increasingly crowded, most say there's plenty of room for national growth.

The fast-food Mexican chain has petitioned the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to end Taco John’s registration for the Taco Tuesday trademark, which it has owned for years.

Bodega Taqueria y Tequila’s winning combo of street tacos, frozen drinks, DJs and bar food is positioning the concept for growth.

This South Beach, Fla., concept is planning to open in Chicago, Nashville and Washington, D.C. by next year.

As a result, the New York State Common Retirement Fund has withdrawn a shareholder proposal seeking more information about the fast-casual restaurant chain's diversity, equity and inclusion practices. But now Brinker International is a target.

Taco Cabana, Tijuana Flats, Fuzzy’s and Taco del Mar make Mexican menu news; healthy twists at Newks and Garbanzo; and Insomnia Cookies gets ready for V-Day.

The company, backed by restaurateur Danny Meyer, has some big plans to open more fast-casual taco shops and sell its retail tortilla brand throughout the country.
