Taco Bell has released plans to open hundreds, possibly 300 to 350, of new drive-thru-less cantinas by 2022 in urban areas, according to Food and Wine.

If you want to check out the concept, the Berkeley cantina at 2528 Durant Ave. features an open kitchen, a menu of shareable items (besides the traditional menu), extended hours - and several microbrews.

These new locations - which will be located mostly in Urban areas - will serve beer, wine, sangria, and Twisted Freezes (slushies with tequila, rum, or vodka), the report said.

Shares of Yum! Brands were sinking in afternoon trading on Tuesday. While the loss of drive-thrus could be devastating to the perennial fast-food diner, Taco Bell promises to serve alcohol at these new locations.

Taco Bell already has several other cantina locations in the US including one in Las Vegas, where they offered $600 wedding packages.

Booze might be coming to a Taco Bell near you-but you won't be getting it through a drive thru window.

Another interesting point: According to Food & Wine, the chain's drive-thrus make up around 55 to 70 percent of its revenue.

The Tex-Mex brand is always looking to flawless a new, even innovative or peculiar item.
