You would think that a place as epic a Taco Bell would have maintained the same menu year after year but the truth is, they were completely different in the beginning! These days, we are used to have many choices when we enter into a Taco Bell and it’s hard to imagine its humble beginnings when they didn’t as much to choose from. If fact, they were almost too small to be noticed but the staple food products that they had to offer grew in time and is now are a part of our mainstream culture when it comes to fast foods. Check out the beginning of Taco Bell:
1. When they first opened their doors in the early 60s they had only one shop in Downey, CA.
At this place, their main items were tacos, burritos, frijoles and tostados and they only cost 19 cents each!
2. Kermit Becky.

3. The Bellburger.
A burger is not what you would expect to see on a Taco Bell menu but no one seemed to care back then because they used taco meat, cheese and a spicy sauce to give it a Mexican-style spin. However, it is no longer available and was discontinued in the late 70s.
