SDCC 2018: Taco Bell Brings the Demolition Man Fine Dining Experience to Comic Con!

Taco Bell is celebrating the return of Nacho Fries, along with the 25th Anniversary of Warner Bros. Pictures’ film Demolition Man, by recreating the iconic Taco Bell restaurant from the movie and bringing the experience to lucky movie fans who are around for San Diego Comic Con.

Demolition Man, a 1993 Warner Bros. Pictures’ cult-classic, gained fame for its utopian predictions of 2032 – where Taco Bell was the only restaurant to survive the Franchise Wars. Since the film’s release 25 years ago – one question remains unanswered: how? Leading up to the July 12 (that means you can order them right now!) return of Nacho Fries, answers will be revealed with exciting creative in the sequel to Web of Fries I.

Located on 658 Fifth Avenue, the Taco Bell of the future has a waiting area for fans after putting their name in with the hostess. Once inside, it’s approximately a twenty-minute wait where foodies can buy alcoholic drinks at the bar or Taco Bell merchandise and mill about with other fans. There is a live piano player as well as costumes from the movie to look at while waiting. 

After being seated at a fancy white tablecloth-adorned table with cloth napkins, a set four-course meal follows. The menu includes:

  • Joy Joy Hors D’Oeuvres, a starter that was designed to be specifically like the one described in the movie — and it was delicious.
  • Crunchwrap Supreme Leader, if you live your life without ever having a fancy crunchwrap supreme, you’re missing out.
  • Franchise Freedom Fries, which is the themed name for the re-launched nacho fries. Anyone I’ve mentioned them to have been excited to have them back.
  • Cinnamon Helix Confection, always end with dessert. 

Everything was delicious for an upscale Taco Bell experience, so it’s hard to pick a favorite dish. The first course that was designed specifically from the movie description was a real treat though. The level of detail and care that Taco Bell put into recreating this experience from the movie really stood out and fans of the movie will not be disappointed by their care. Definitely drop into the bathroom and see if you can figure out that damn three seashell thing for yourself!
