Taco Bell is coming back to Saskatoon.
A cryptic social media post from Taco Bell Canada Wednesday afternoon indicated a Saskatoon location will open at 8th Street and Arlington Avenue this spring.
“Me and my buddies are quite excited,” Jeremy Morin told 650 CKOM Thursday. “It’s about time we finally got one in Saskatoon.”
Morin isn’t alone – the news of Taco Bell’s return lit up 650 CKOM’s Facebook page, garnering hundreds of shares and comments.
“Now I don’t have to drive to Edmonton or Minot (U.S.) just to get it,” said Spencer Meisner.
Saskatoon is finally getting a Taco Bell. On the other side of town but! I’m willing to make the drive for some delicious terrible food

Meisner, 26, has been a fan of the food chain since he was 16-years-old.
“I really like Mexican food and it’s really cheap,” he said.
The new location won’t be the first time Taco Bell has opened in the Bridge City – the University of Saskatchewan’s food court had one at least a decade ago, which has since closed.
