Whether you’re looking for a cheap option for Taco Tuesday or you’re hunting for the latest fast food deals, you’ve come to the right place. Taco Bell Happy Hour, or Happier Hour, as the Mexican fast food chain likes to call it offers some of the best special offers, discounts, and dollar deals in the industry. Screw the dollar menu, Taco Bell’s Happier Hour is where it’s at. (Not really though – we love the Dollar Cravings Menu with a passion.)
Does Taco Bell still have Happy Hour?
Yes, Taco Bell still has a daily happy hour after all these years. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Sunday, you can snag some serious deals at your local Taco Bell during happy hour. Currently, there are a few Happier Hour items on the menu, including $1 Medium Drinks, $1 Medium Freezes, and $1 Doritos Locos Tacos. Taco Bell drinks include fountain beverages like G2 Gatorade, Mountain Dew Baja Blast, iced coffee, orange juice, and other Pepsi products.
The current Taco Bell Freeze lineup includes:
- Electric Blue Raspberry Freeze (new!)
- Blue Raspberry Freeze
- Mountain Dew Baja Blast Freeze
- Strawberry Skittles Freeze
While drinks and Freezes are typically always on the daily Happier Hour menu, the $1 Doritos Locos is only available during happy hour for a limited time. Typically, a regular Doritos Locos Taco is sold for around $1.49, while a supreme is $1.89 (prices may vary by location). The promotion is valid with dine-in, drive-through, delivery, and pickup orders placed online. To order online, simply download the Taco Bell app on your phone and the deals will be automatically applied to your order. If you want your food delivered, download the Postmates, Grubhub, or Doordash app on your phone to place an order.
According to the website, Happier Hour deals are available at participating locations only. If your favorite food at Taco Bell is not on the Happier Hour menu, don’t worry. They have a newly revamped Dollar Cravings menu with more than 20 cheap fast food items for $1 to $5, too.
What is the Taco Bell $5 box right now?
While the Taco Bell $5 Box is not technically part of Happier Hour, it is still the menu item that gives you the most bang for your buck. Currently, the $5 Cravings Box is the Chalupa box, which includes one Nacho Crunch Double Stacked Taco, one Crunchy Taco, one Chalupa Supreme, and a medium fountain drink. Customers can customize any of the menu items to remove, add, or substitute ingredients. You can also swap one of the tacos for a different menu item, but additional fees may apply.
Taco Bell also has an upgraded Cravings box called the $7 Deluxe Box, which includes a Steak Chalupa Supreme, a Beefy 5-Layer Burrito, a Nacho Cheese Doritos® Locos Tacos, an order of Nachos and Cheese, and a medium drink.
How much are Taco Bell slushies?
During Happier Hour, Taco Bell slushies, referred to as Freezes, are just $1. However, during regular hours of operation, Taco Bell Freezes are $2.49 for a regular and $2.69 for a large.
Taco Bell Happy Hour UK
Happier Hour is not exclusive to the United States. Taco Bell Happy Hour in the United Kingdom typically takes place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at participating locations only. In the United Kingdom, however, Happier Hour at Taco Bell is a legitimate happy hour because they sell beer and Twisted Freezes spiked with rum. Cheers to that.
