Fast food chains used to be off the charts. The modern-day designs of Taco Bell don’t do the fast food chain justice, but the food continues to satisfy the craving. We decided to rank the 5 ‘best Taco Bells in Tampa Bay’ based on customer reviews. This is what we found.

Where I grew up, the fast food restaurants were the hangout spot on a Friday night. We had a quarter-mile strip of the road with a KFC, Taco Bell, Burger King, and a McDonald’s side-by-side with parking lots connecting the stand-alone restaurants.

Before the rise of online ordering and improving the drive-thru experience, inside dining was king. The old-school Taco Bell interiors featured the classic swivel chairs connected to the tables, roomy booths big enough to fit a party of 12, and the coin drop game at the counter where you could win a free bag of cinnatwists.

The inside dining experience may have changed and coin drop has gone virtual in the app, but the loaded potato grillers, quesadillas, and Dorito’s Locos Tacos still reign supreme. The service is always good and my order is correct almost 100% of the time I go to Taco Bell.

How We Determined The ‘Best Taco Bells in Tampa Bay’

We went over to Taco Bell Locator and typed in Tampa Bay. We included locations throughout the entire Tampa Bay area to find which locations stand for the ‘best Taco Bell locations in Tampa Bay’.
