About This Quiz

The inspiration for Taco Bell came from a restaurant called the Mitla Cafe in San Bernardino, California. Glen Bell, Taco Bell’s founder, had opened a hot dog stand across from the Mitla Cafe and every day he watched people line up for their ten-cent tacos dorados, mostly ignoring his hot dogs. Being the kind of guy who was hungry not just for a tasty snack but success, Bell tried to reverse engineer his own taco based on what he’d seen. He befriended the staff at the Mitla and in time they shared their recipe with him. The rest, as they say, is taco history.

From Glen Bell’s first Taco Bell location in Downey, California the chain has expanded dramatically. Crunchy tacos dorados gave way to soft tacos, burritos, Mexican pizzas, and even the legendary Naked Chicken Chalupa that swapped out a tortilla for a flat piece of chicken. These days, Taco Bell is known for having a wide and sometimes bizarre menu that can include everything from breakfast to the chocolate-filled Kit Kat Quesadilla. Some are going to be easy to identify but others, maybe not so much. If you’re a true Taco Bell fan, you are up to the challenge! Take the quiz and see just how many Taco Bell menu items you can identify!
