Taco Bell Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Taco Bell is an American chain of fast-food restaurants based out of Irvine, California, founded in 1962 by Glen Bell. Taco Bell is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc. The restaurants serve a variety of Mexican inspired foods that include tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, novelty, and specialty items, and a variety of "value menu" items. As of 2018, Taco Bell serves more than 2 billion customers each year at 7,072 restaurants, more than 93 percent of which are owned and operated by independent franchisees and licensees.
Clayton shares his experience with disappointment on consumeraffairs.com, "Taco Bell used to be a good place to eat...40 years ago. Once you find a menu item you like they get rid of it and replace it with crap. I used to love the Bell Beefer until it got the ax. Now there are no more Gorditas, XXL Burritos or Taco Salads. What they do sell is overpriced and not that good. They just heat up prepackaged ingredients and put it on a different shell. Also, they still have the dining rooms closed but the speed of service is no better. When picking up the food in the drive-thru it is cold by the time you get home. In fact, it is worse! I have tried to give them a chance every now and then but they seem to strive to hit the lowest mark in service and quality of food. We are lucky we have great options instead of Taco Bell like Del Taco. It is a further drive, but worth it!"

Cashier/line/crew/shift Lead (Former Employee) says"There are many problems working for the FALL RIVER TACO BELL -LOCKWOOD MCKINNON company. The management has been garbage for about 5 years. Each GM gets progressively worse. They have been selfish, cruel, and they subject their crew to favoritism. They make for stressful work conditions, making employees leave due to unfair treatment. Understaffing and carelessness from the GENERAL MANAGER makes it a very uncomfortable work environment. This also causes employees to have bad mental health Struggles. Money.general manager and unfair treatment"

A young lady told us that we couldn\'t order thru the drive thru only on line take out orders. It was my son\'s b-day and he wanted to take home Taco Bell. Well I guess it didn\'t happen. Called them today to verify if the previous statement told by this young lady was true and management told me they were open 4 every-one. "

Nate says"It is a lot of effort in terms of there being so many jobs elsewhere that are way easier and are not as stressful, the only reason to work here is for the food which I think everyone can pass on. "

Katie Taylor says"we went to taco bell for the first time today, got home to eat and one was cold, forgot half the chips and the 'plant based' (AKA vegan) had cheddar in it! the cinnamon twists were like eating polystyrene, this was in the milton keynes store we will not be going back!"
Mrs Chetna Patel says"Leicester UK Store Wrong items received and was disappointed when i took the food home. The wait was around 15 minutes as well. Put a complaint in where you have to register to their portal and even after 4 weeks still no outcome. The complaints procedure is not straight forward probably to fob you off. Anyway stay away from this store as you and your family will be left disappointed and you cant do anything about it."

Carolyn Lee says"Was giving them 5 stars. But now a one the employees don't seem to care about customer satisfaction. And that's pretty bad when your change is your money and they won't give you your change. You mean a corporate has to steal from customers. That change adds up you know!!!"
None says"Corporate need to go to Taco Bell Roebuck cause they have all minors working and the store is in a turmoil and a lot of family members together"
Debbie Troutt says"I went to get a Mexican pizza but found out they are no longer on the menu. Since then I haven't been back"
Shawn Davis says"If there was an option for zero stars I would. Whenever I look up to see if they're open it says they are and they always let me down. Tonight I actually called instead of wasting my time of driving there and says there open till 2 and guy at 1 says were closed and then hangs up. I will never be going there again"
Sonja Adkison says"Just left the one in Hampton, VA Pembroke Ave. they made it wrong, I returned for a refund, they gave me a refund, re-made the order and the second time it was worst. I know it's fast food but damn. It's not that hard. No-one else was in line. Store is never busy. Now I know why. I should have gone to the restaurant closer to my house: Mexical."
