The rumors are true … a little.
Stories have been circulating recently that Taco Bell is planning to overhaul their menu and will be removing some popular menu items soon.
The company released a statement confirming that changes to the menu are coming and that some of the rumors were true, although they were not fully understood.
A Taco Bell spokesperson confirmed to Fox News that the fast food chain is simplifying the menu in an effort to make orders “faster, safer and easier” for workers and customers. The changes come as the company shifted its priorities to digital controls and drive-thru in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The following will be removed from the menu: Soft Grilled Steak Taco, 7 Layer Burrito, Supreme Nachos, Beef Fritos Burrito, Spicy Tostada, Three Layer Nachos, Spicy Potato Mild Taco, Fiesta cheese potatoes, loaded grills, French fries and Dips and finally, the Mini Skillet Bowl from the breakfast menu.
Much of the angst surrounding the rumors seemed to center on the possibility that the popular Quesarito – a quesadilla turned into a beefy burrito – was leaving the menu.
Taco Bell has confirmed that Quesaritos will be removed from restaurant menus, but the item will still be available through online ordering.

The changes will take effect on August 13.
The news will come as a relief for social media users who feared the disappearance of the Quesarito.
As one user put it, “Taco Bell is giving up on potatoes and the quesarito has officially established itself as the worst this year.”
“First they came for the electric burrito and I didn’t say anything because I didn’t order the electric burrito,” added another. “Now they’ve come for the quesarito, and there’s no one left to speak for me.
