For New York, specifically, the chain plans to open 50 locations in Manhattan - where there are only six restaurants now.

According to Food & Wine, Taco Bell will open hundreds of locations in the United States with a revamped "cantina style" layout that does not accommodate drive-thrus and tacks on beer and liquor to the menu.

Detroit, Pittsburgh, Nashville and NY are next in line to get them, according to the report. These new locations will be selling beer, wine, sangria and new slushies called Twisted Freezes spiked with tequila, vodka and rum. Other Mexican chains, such as Moe's and Chipotle, have embraced the concept of serving alcohol in its stores as well.
