Taco Bell to Open Third Jersey City Outpost

Jersey City is home to quite a few taco restaurants, many being locally-owned and operated, but once in a while a chain swoops in and adds to the scene. Taco Bell will be expanding to a third location in Jersey City, this time in the downtown area. The large food chain has locations at 2825 John F. Kennedy Blvd and 701 NJ-440 currently, and has set its sights on DTJC. Now, Taco Bell will open its largest storefront at 75 Montgomery Street in Jersey City, also known as the Hudson Company National Bank building.

Popular menu items for Taco Bell include the Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Tacos, softshell tacos, hardshell tacos, Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos, and a variety of new veggie options, like the spicy potato soft taco, and the black bean Quesarito. Patrons can also choose from variations of quesadillas, burritos, nachos, and sweet treats.

The Presence of Chains Locally

It’s safe to say the addition of chain stores in the local community has a history of causing upset. When Sephora came to Washington Street back in 2018, it sparked some debate, as well as the Domino’s return and Shake Shack outpost in the Mile Square.

There is currently no mention of an official opening date for Jersey City but we will keep HG readers updated as more details unfold.
