UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 24, 2019 — Taco Bell promised us one Melbourne store, but, instead, it's bringing us two. By the time the end of 2019 rolls round, you'll be able to get your taco fix in both South Yarra and Hawthorn. No exact dates or locations have been announced just yet, but we'll let you know when they are.


After opening five Queensland locations in the past two years and announcing plans to launch 50 more Australian stores over the next three years, Taco Bell's first interstate store is set to swing into operation this summer — in Melbourne.

While details are scarce for now, the Tex-Mex giant has revealed it's opening a store in the city's inner east sometime this summer. The US chain teased the interstate opening on its Facebook page on Monday, with lots of locals hoping for a Melbourne opening. Their prayers have been answered.

Menu-wise, the usual Taco Bell range will be on offer, complete with burritos, quesadillas, nachos and, of course, tacos. For those dining in, frozen margaritas and a range of craft beers will also be available.

Taco Bell's Australian arm currently includes stores in Annerley, Cleveland, North Lakes, Robina and Southport, but with promises of more than 50 across the country, we can expect a few more to open in Melbourne in the upcoming months and years.

Taco Bell is slated to open in South Yarra and Hawthorn this summer. We'll let you know when more info drops.
