The Largest Taco Bell In The World Is In This Country

Devouring a feast from Taco Bell is one of life's simplest pleasures. Whether you're on Team Crunchwrap Supreme with a thirst-quenching, aqua-hued Mountain Dew Baja Blast or prefer the Nachos BellGrande with a side of sweet, crunchy Cinnamon Twists for dessert, you really can't go wrong with choosing Taco Bell. A meal from Taco Bell is simple, satiating, and affordable — just what many consumers ask for.

Taco Bell was founded in Downey, California in the early '60s by its namesake, a man by the name of Glen Bell. More than six decades later, Taco Bell is recognized as one of the most popular fast food establishments around the globe. Today, there are currently approximately 500 Taco Bells in 30 countries outside the U.S., according to a report from Yum! Brands.

If you're hungry for some T. Bell and want to visit its most substantial real estate on the planet, you won't find it on American soil. In fact, you'll have to book a ticket to the home nation of Oscar Isaac and the ancient Mayans to experience its wonder.

The world's largest Taco Bell is in Guatemala

According to Taco Bell's official blog, the Mexican cuisine-inspired chain's biggest restaurant can be found in Guatemala City, Guatemala. The two-story eatery, which is located in an old bank building, spans a whopping 6,415 square feet, which is slightly larger than a collegiate or professional basketball court. The A.V. Club even dubbed the Guatemala City joint "the world's most picturesque Taco Bell."

Back in May 2022, a TikToker biked 11,000 miles to the grandiose Taco Bell and shared that the upper level features a massive dining area for customers while the lower level has a patio that overlooks the bustling city street. The Guatemalan Taco Bell menu includes various majestic items that cannot be found in the U.S., including the Chocodilla (a Taco bell dessert that combines tortillas and chocolate), Empanada de Manzana (an apple-filled empanada), Papas Grandes (French fries), Mexican Papas (potato nachos), and the Stacker de Carne (a triangular-folded tortilla filled with seasoned beef and cheese sauce).
