"People would come through on drive-thru and say, 'could you please leave a little off the top, '" said Taco Bell COO Mike Grams.

According to Food and Wine, Taco Bell will be opening about 300 new cantina-style restaurants that won't feature a drive-thru window, but will serve alcohol.

Taco Bell, the go-to, open-all-night solution for a taste for tacos that creeps up on you at midnight is known for its drive-thru service.

On the menu will be sangria, beer and Twisted Freezes - slushies with rum, vodka or tequila.

The redesigned dining locations will be appearing in major cities such as Nashville, New York, Pittsburgh and Detroit.

Grams added "currently, there are already roughly 6,000 Taco Bell restaurants nationwide, but expanding the urban footprint, in particular, makes sense".
