With its new breakfast menu, Taco Bell is making some waves in the fast food world. With items like the AM Crunch Wrap and grilled breakfast burritos, the chain's unique offerings have drawn attention from both breakfast and lunch fans alike. However, one question that's popped up is: When does Taco Bell stop serving breakfast and start its lunch service?
The answer to this depends on the location. According to the chain's website, breakfast typically runs from 7:00 am to 11:00 am at most locations. This is a general rule that holds true for drive-through and dine-in customers, but it varies from store to store. For example, a Taco Bell in Arlington, Virginia, says it serves breakfast until 11 am, while a Taco Bell in Albuquerque, New Mexico, stops at 8 am.
At most locations, once the breakfast hours are over, Taco Bell starts its lunch service at 11:30 am. This includes the chain's lunch combo meal packs such as the Power Meal and Crunch Wrap Supreme. The line between breakfast and lunch is much looser than it is at McDonald's, which requires you to order a sandwich or taco to go with your morning coffee or Cinnabon Delights.
Some stores may begin their lunch service even earlier than 11:30 am, so it's always a good idea to check out the specific hours at your local Taco Bell using the chain's Store Locator tool. But the good news is that the majority of stores offer lunch until closing time at 2 pm on both weekdays and weekends.
