Lincoln’s first Taco Bell now open

Drive-thru and dine-in to follow soon!

Taco Bell opened its first Lincoln restaurant on Thursday – initially for deliveries only, in the uphill area of the city.

The Mexican-inspired brand’s 67th UK restaurant saw Taco Bell take over the former Pizza Hut unit in Nettleham Road.

Dine-in service and drive-thru will begin from Wednesday, August 25.

In the meantime, customers will be able to order via the Taco Bell app, as well as third-party delivery platforms including Just Eat, Deliveroo and Uber Eats.

This will be followed by a dine-in restaurant on Lincoln High Street, at the former Everest Xpress Nepalese and Indian takeaway, in about three weeks’ time.

Meanwhile, The Lincolnite went to try out the Mexican-style fast food restaurant in Scunthorpe earlier this month to see what all the fuss is about.
