CouponsSurveys ― Take Taco Bell® Survey ― Win $500

Enter the infamous Taco Bell survey after eating, or even without any purchase, for a chance to win one of 4 $500 check prizes every contest period.

Taco Bell was founded in 1948 by a man named Glen Bell, when he was only 25 years old.

The poor lad originally sold hot dogs in a stand, but watched in awe as a taco cafe across the street from his hot dog stand had out the door lines while he clearly did not.

At first he tried to copy their success by putting together a taco recipe on his own, but it wasn’t working.

After he kept asking them, the successful Mitla Cafe owner actually allowed him to see not only their exact recipe, but also exactly how they made their infamous tacos.

I’m not sure why they would have allowed a competitor who was set up across the street have their secret golden child recipe, but go figure, they were very nice and maybe not competitive at all.

Anyway, in 1951, Glenn Bell happily scooped up their secret taco recipe and used this information to open a new stand across the street from his overly kind competitor.

He scrapped his failing hot dogs and started to sell his competitor’s exact tacos in his stand across the street from their overflowing restaurant.

He first called his new stand “taco tia”.

Not surprisingly, since the restaurant he “stole” the recipe from was a runaway hit, his the stand ended up booming and becoming a huge success.

In 1962 Glenn Bell decided to get a little more narcissistic, as most restaurant owners do, and opened the first “Taco Bell” restaurant, using his last name and the word taco to christen the place’s name.

The restaurant boomed and in 1964 the first franchise was opened, marking the beginning of the ubiquitous Taco Bell fast food restaurant chain.

Taco Bell was founded by Bell in San Bernardino California.

Surprisingly, it’s not the only runaway fast food hit founded in this part of the US. McDonald’s, which also has an McDVoice survey for a free burger, was also founded by the McDonalds family from the same location.

Pepsi actually bought Taco Bell in 1978 and still owns it. Perhaps the most controversial aspect of Taco Bell today is how it prepares its food including using genetically modified ingredients.

Regardless, the original Taco Tia recipe is a classic, and truly stand the test of time. Taco Bell strives to always improve, which is why they offer the chance for all customers who fill out their online survey to be entered into their online sweepstakes with the chance to win a $500 prize.

    code 2273-2029-1877-2227
    cashier was great when she left the counter she was even better doing orders. She should be the example for what they need to do, if we see them working again we walk.

  4. I think your food is great. But when you advertise on Tv that the nacho frys are 1$ that’s what they should be at every franchise

  5. Cold Taco box including the fries…Ellenton FL 2nd time out of many….more good than bad but really, taco fell apart like it was soggy?

  6. Taco fell apart like it was soggy. Got the 5 dollar box…fries cold. I ate them as soon as I got them. TB hardly ever disapoints me!

  7. Love the Chicken Cassadee is on the dollar menu board I also love their fries are the best fries ever I hope they never get rid of them thanks Taco Bell

  8. For some reason I cannot get the survey started. I just went through drive through at the Taco Bell in Elkhart, In on CR 17. Another terrible experience. My unsweet tea was sweet. I had to park the car and go inside to refill my cup with unsweet tea. The tea dispenser sprayed some weird orange liquid. I then went to the counter and got a new cup of tea and the server was very accomadating. As I was leaving I saw 20 people sitting a tables not eating. They were still waiting for their food. It’s always slow at that location, with a 20 minute wait inside the restaurant. I got back to work to eat my #3 – 3 Crunchy Taco Supreme tacos and there is no sour cream or tomatoes. I only got the #3 because of the sour cream. A waste of time from start to finish.

  9. I cannot enter the survey, I just ate at Taco Bell 002621. The food was good and the service was great . Please enter my Survey Code 6824-1026-1122- 0307.

      1. code 6475201313042316 taco bell 027302 5/14/18 had taco. cashier alexandria g , food was good ,husband had chicken

  24. 1st,my wife & I came to location 22376,ordered items we wanted,forgot to tell the cashier we wanted boxes,had to get a mngr there to fix it,we sit down & see the mngr lecturing her about not reading back the order,when she did,the girl was upset,understandably & when we were finished,i came up to the girl & apologized.1st off,the cheesy smiles,fake niceness,profusely apologizing for things that are not their faults,is tall tale signs that your company,highest to lowest rank mngt are mentally,emotionally & verbally abusive to your workers,even for a lousy $1, & so is what I witnessed!we won’t go back to any taco bells,won’t recommend it & surely won’t promote or encourage that type of treatment to workers,thank you.

  25. Had a horrible experience.. No nachos.. 30 wait for beef.. Sad. Need to do something about this.. I felt rejected

  26. Code 4725-6024-1379-3109
    I want to thank Emily who was very helpful and very responsive when I asked questions and even brought my food to my table when me and my son were eating. Thanks so much.pickens place was awesome.

  27. Kailua Hawaii store recently renovated and is really great- you’ve been in Kailua a long time and I go there about once a week. I’ve got to tell you you need to work on your survey access. I’ve been trying to get to it for over 20 minutes now with no success. Hope to enter through this access. My receipt had no 16 digit code on it but the store # is 001701, I was there yesterday 5/12/2018, my order # was 202922 . The service was great as usual, I’m always amazed that your employees seem much happier and friendly than other fast food places . My grandson and I had the best lunch of Quesadillas and tacos and we always enjoy going in the place instead of through the drive-in because the staff is always so accommodating Keep up the great service and delicious food.

  28. Taco Bell should not say to do an online survey when they won’t let you do one as I tried today and it won’t let me. False advertising.

    1. Could not get survey to. come up. My code is 1727-1030-1996-3521 always have a good experience when I go to my TCo Bell 0032091.

  29. Was unable to get the survey started. My Code is 1325-3028-1833-2526. My hubby & I are 82 and have been going to this Bell 022833 since they opened years ago. Have many times commented on how nice the cashiers were but TODAY was unbelievable . Diana was at the register. Every person ordering was greeted with the biggest smile and welcome. She said I am Diana and what is your name sir? Ask about our day as she did to everyone. As we ate we couldn’t keep our eyes off of her. She never stopped smiling and made EVERYONE feel special. We told the manager that she needed a raise. When we first went in I thought SHE was the manager because she was so nice. Please try to keep her with your company. What an asset she is. We will look for her now because it made our lunch so pleasant.

  30. Went to Taco Bell on Tuesday 5/29/18,went inside to order.The floor had straws,napkins and trash on it.Someone at drive thru said they did not get their taco and employee said’I made that bitch.Cashier did not know how to make change for a $10 bill.What a joke!

  31. Service was fast, order was right and glad it was warm. Had a employee being trained that waited on us, turned out right. Only thing we were getting ushered out, gave notice of 5 minutes until closing, the people I was with ate so fast, but I wanted to sit and finish. Noticed that napkins and a piece of candy was on the tables when we were leaving so I picked up one each for all three of us that went to eat inside. 0565-7020-2130-2334

  32. Here’s my number I too could not type them in. Love the food though:), My number is 4046 9010 1473 2306. Thanks, Diane

  33. I have tried entering my survey code several times and it will not allow me to move further 3896-8036-1167-2302 Creve Coeur Mo 63141 store number 029688. Please enter me for the drawing. After getting back to the branch with my order I began to eat and noticed a pungent taste coming from my pizza. The tacos were fine however I phoned the location and spoke with Shontel to let her know there was something spoiled on the tacos. Shotel express to me it was not the meat and probably the shells. I asked if they had reports of this and she didn’t answer which tells me the location knew of the spoiled shells. Ruined my lunch and too far for me to exchange, I was so disappointed because I had my mouth set for that pizza.

  34. I eat at Taco Bell at 2 in the morning just about every morning foods good service is always good didn’t have a place to put in my code so I guess I should put it in here which is +223-620-302-898 3403

  35. I have been unsuccessful in being able to enter the survey…..I want to be considered for this contest. I have nothing but praise for Taco Bell. Survey Code is: 7466-0034-1109-1008

  36. I too could not get the survey to start. My survey code is 2826-4033-1896-3026. This is not a good reflection you or your services. Also, please tell whoever wrote your intro, ‘infamous’ means ‘having a very bad reputation’. What they may have meant is ‘famous’ which means ‘well known’, renowned, first rate, excellent. Of course, you have just acquired an infamous reputation for working surveys.

  37. What good is a survey that you can’t open? If you would like my opinion allow me entry to your survey site! 3426-1023-1467-3322 Store#032361 Store was great, survey sucks. Good way to save money!

  38. I could do the survey either survey code: 3536-9033-2260-3236 Store #033369. I purchased the $5 steak nacho box with a watermelon freeze. The freeze was great but the steak nacho box was salty.

Please acknowledge my receipt with survey code: 2627-9021-1486-0329, and how will I know if it was entered into the system. Order 200106, and cashier name was GILBERTO M.

  44. Very disappointed I ordered 2 5-layer burritos and got 2 beef burritos, when I went back the manager was very rude and said that I ordered the wrong thing.

  45. Went to Taco bell in Deert Hot Springs on Palm Drive my cashier was Noah and he was very friendly and helpful he answered all my questions when I wanted to know about different food and what was in it I give him 5stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  46. Could not enter contest but the Nachos Supreme we ordered today (98256) from Adrina M. was perfect. The server at drive thru was very nice too. Thank you Clearlake

    The Nachos Supreme we ordered thru Drive Thru today was perfect. (98256) Thank you Clear lake, ca TB.

  47. My name is Lisa and I’ve been trying to enter my survey code and there’s a problem with the website apparently and was not taking the fillable information from me… Please except my survey code which is 1928–7 038–1 480–0328… The lunch I ordered from the Taco Bell on Thunderbird and Cavecreek was fantastic and everything was made perfectly.


  49. all I wanted to do was come on and compliment a specific server, but I cant click anywhere or do anything. I don’t even care about the prize, I just wanted this guy to get some recognition. now im annoyed -_-

    1. My name is Donna Allen I think Tabitha Casey has done a great job of serving me today thank you for your service and I will be back again February 23rd 2019 may he bless her everyday with a great smile

  50. I was attempting to enter the survey, but could not enter the 16 digit survey code in the required field. Is there a trick to entering this?

  51. I ordered two chalupas and both of them were so tough that they were difficult to bite into and cold. I figured they were left over from the Holidays. I should have gone to Chicken E as they always give good food and it is fresh. I have had bad food ever since they remodeled the store.Also as so many others with the same complaint have experienced , I cannot get my survey code to enter Store # 016170 / Survey Code:2862-0131-1978-1223

  52. The food was good, the service was excellent, but the survey stinks. Impossible to start the survey. Something is fundamentally wrong. I want to think that it was not designed so, purposely.

  53. Just below “Terms and Conditions” there is a “LINK” click on it and start the survey. The one above is just an example, it looks like it is good but it is not, that’s why it won’t work.



  55. My name is Donna Allen I think Tabitha Casey has done a great job of serving me today thank you for your service and I will be back again February 23rd 2019 may he bless her everyday with a great smile
