Customers over Labor Day weekend weren't crunching into gorditas and sipping on boozed-up slushies over at America's first boozy Taco Bell in Wicker Park. The neighborhood — and the nation — still awaits the opening of America's first Taco Bell that serves alcohol, as The Bell still hasn't revealed an opening date.
But the restaurant has finally put up their menus above the counter at 1439 N. Milwaukee Ave. Diners will get their chance to try Taco Bell's latest promotion: "Dare Devil Loaded Grillers." The burritos, most assuredly not tied-in at all to Netflix's adaptation of Marvel Comics' "Daredevil," can be seen lit-up in all their glory. Unfortunately, the drink menu can't be seen clearly through the window that's now adorned with "Taco Bell Cantina" signage. Passersby can spy slushies, with some customization options, as well as beer taps. But it's difficult to see how alcohol flows into those options.
Taco Bell launched their dare devils on Aug. 6, and they should be around for a month or two, given Taco Bell's past record. Given that math, Wicker Parkers should be enjoying tacos and beers by the end of this month. Check back soon for more updates.
