Customers will be able to watch their food being cooked.

Citing the renewed liveliness of urban and even "downtown" areas, Taco Bell's Chief Operating Officer, Mike Grams, reminded the same outlet that the restaurant "isn't afraid to try new things".

In its latest plan, it intends to do away with drive-thrus and serve alcohol in big-city locales.
