Last Updated on August 4, 2022 by Lauren Beck

Taco Bell is a restaurant chain that specializes in Mexican-style fast food. The menu includes items such as tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, and other Tex-Mex style dishes.

Taco Bell does not accept EBT as a form of payment. However, there are some Taco Bell locations that participate in the Restaurant Meals Program, which allows customers to use their EBT cards to purchase meals. To find out if a particular Taco Bell location participates in the Restaurant Meals Program, you can contact the restaurant directly or check the list of participating restaurants on the California Department of Social Services website.

If you are receiving SNAP benefits (formerly known as food stamps), you can use your EBT card to purchase food at any grocery store or retail location that accepts EBT. While Taco Bell does not accept EBT, there are many other restaurants that do, so you can still use your EBT card to purchase a meal when you’re on the go. For a list of restaurants that accept EBT, you can check out the USDA’s SNAP Restaurant Locator [1].
