PACIFICA, Calif. (KTVU) - Taco Bell lovers who couldn’t snag a reservation at the Mexican fast-food chain’s pop-up hotel in Palm Springs can head on down to Linda Mar Beach.

Taco Bell transformed it’s popular Pacifica location into a beachside cantina complete with a new menu, boozy beverages, and artwork from San Francisco street artist Nora Bruhn, The SFGate wrote.

The location, which has been around since the 80s, reopens on Saturday after it was revamped inside and out. Some finishings include an indoor and outdoor fireplace and a walk-up window for surfers and beachgoers to place an order.

A spokesperson for Taco Bell told SFGate it will be the first of its cantina restaurants to have recycling and compost bins in efforts to keep the beaches clean and free of any sauce packets.

The new cantina opens Saturday with a special event from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The first 50 guests get Taco Bell themed beach towels and the first 150 guests will also get free crunchy tacos.
