After opening five Queensland locations in the past two years and announcing plans to launch one in Melbourne this summer, Taco Bell has finally unveiled plans to open not one, but two stores in NSW.

While details are scarce for now, the Tex-Mex giant has revealed it's opening stores in Blacktown and Newcastle in late spring. The US chain has been teasing the interstate openings on its Facebook page, with lots of locals hoping for a Sydney store. Their prayers have finally been answered.

There's nothing like a road trip… Next stop… New South Wales!We can’t wait to ring the bell in Western Sydney AND Newcastle. Stay tuned! 🚗🌮

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 Sydney in the upcoming months and years.

This is, however, Taco Bell's third attempted foray into the Australian market. The chain tried to launch here in 1981 (and was then taken to court by Sydney store Taco Bell's Casa) and again in 1997 — but both attempts were unsuccessful and the brand withdrew.

Taco Bell is slated to open in Blacktown and Newcastle this spring. We'll let you know when more info drops.
