Picture it: you can hear the ocean waves crashing on the California coast, the sea breeze softly musses your hair, and as you park your surfboard and mosey over to a beachside restaurant’s walk-up window to order some tacos and a cold beer, you think to yourself “is this heaven?”
Believe it or not, it’s actually a Taco Bell.
A recent TikTok video from travel influencer Megan Homme has thrust the Taco Bell Cantina in Pacifica, California into the spotlight, with social media users marveling at the coastal fast food restaurant’s mural created by a local artist, indoor-outdoor fireplace, and patio with ocean views.
The 2,400-square foot property has ample seating both indoors and outdoors, a walk-up window for patrons with sandy feet, and surfboard parking. The menu also includes a local beer selection and, as Homme pointed out, “you can literally add alcohol to pretty much any drink.”
Today reports that this is one of the first Taco Bell locations to have both recycling and compost bins, and the fast food chain is so proud of the restaurant that it even featured it in a blog post titled “12 Beautiful Taco Bells You Never Knew Existed.”
Road trip for a Toasted Cheddar Chalupa, anyone?
