You know the deal: It's late and you're driving back home from work when a craving strikes. There's nothing stocking the fridge in your kitchen, and who has the energy to navigate a grocery store when all you're really looking for is a quick fix. And that's when you hear a bell, or more like see the bell. There are plenty of reasons why Taco Bell is the best food chain and the convenience to satiate our hunger instantaneously is just one of them.

First of all, there are tacos. You know, a soft corn tortilla cradling a spicy filling of meat and vegetables doused in salsas and hot sauces? Taco Bell has taken the basics and applied imagination to create tacos that are in a class of their own. But more on that later. The most important thing is that you can count on Taco Bell. It's open when you're hungry and it plays along with your Senior Class photos. Taco Bell wants to be a part of your milestones and outfit those events with Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos. What could be better? Taco Bell isn't only about the food it's about the experiences. And that's what has us — and everybody, it seems — coming back for much more than second helpings.
