  • The steak was perfectly cooked and the cheese added tons of flavor without overpowering the burrito.
  • I tried the new menu items at the most beautiful Taco Bell in the world, which lived up to its name.
It's no secret that I'm a huge Taco Bell fan.

Whether it's a new burrito or a chicken-taco hybrid, I love trying Taco Bell's new menu items — and telling you exactly how I feel about them. 

So when I heard that Taco Bell recently released a new spin on its Grilled Cheese Burrito, along with a new taco, I knew I had to check them out. 

And what better place to try them than at the world's most beautiful Taco Bell? 

I conducted my very serious taste test at the Taco Bell in Pacifica, California.

Taco Bell Pacifica has become famous for its beautiful ocean views.

It went viral on TikTok last year when a fan gave her followers a tour, and one couple recently paid $4,000 to have their wedding reception at the restaurant. 

The location looks straight out of a California postcard.

Taco Bell Pacifica is right on the beach. You can watch surfers ride waves just a few feet away from its stunning outdoor patio while digging into your Crunchwrap Supreme. And, since it's a Cantina location, you can also sip on some frozen alcoholic drinks. Now that's paradise. 

You can read my full review on what it's like to visit the world's most beautiful Taco Bell here.

After checking out the views, I grabbed a table on the outdoor deck and admired my spread.

Up for review were Taco Bell's Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito, its Spicy Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito, and the Cantina Crispy Melt Taco. 

Since it was my first time at a Cantina location, I also ordered all three of the alcoholic slushies — in the name of journalism, of course.

First up was the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito.

Taco Bell's Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito is a new twist on its original Grilled Cheese Burrito, which is back on the menu after it was released last summer. 

Like the Grilled Cheese Burrito, the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito features seasoned rice, red tortilla strips, nacho cheese sauce, chipotle sauce, sour cream, and a three-cheese blend. The warm tortilla is grilled with more of that three-cheese blend right on top. 

The "double steak" in its name, according to Taco Bell's website, refers to the fact that it contains double the amount of steak as the chain's Steak Quesadilla. 

As I unwrapped my steak burrito, I could see all that beautiful cheese right on top.

My burrito was covered in cheesy goodness.

I'm a huge fan of the original Grilled Cheese Burrito, so I was super excited to try another cheesy Taco Bell creation. 

It was finally time to dig in. 

And the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito tasted even better than it looked.

The burrito definitely looked impressive when I cut into it.

When I first cut into the burrito to get a peek inside, I was glad to see that it looked far more appetizing than the promotional image. There was way more sauce, for starters, and the steak was well-distributed across the burrito, instead of peeking out in big burnt-looking chunks. 

And the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito tasted just as good as the original — if not better. The cheese added tons of flavor without overpowering the burrito, the deliciously seasoned rice was the perfect base, and the chipotle sauce gave each bite a nice kick. I'm not even a huge steak eater, but I thought it tasted great in the burrito. 

My dad, who tried both the original and steak version during our lunch in Pacifica, also preferred the new burrito. 

"The meat shines more in the steak one than the beef one," he told me. "It reminds me of a Philly Cheesesteak, but in a burrito." 

Next up was the Spicy Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito, which I loved even more.

The spicy sister of the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito has actual jalapeños grilled into it, providing even more heat and crunch to each bite. 

I love spicy food, so that extra texture and flavor instantly won me over. 

I also ordered the Cantina Crispy Melt Taco on a whim, and I'm so glad that I did.

I decided to try the new taco after it caught my eye on the menu, even though a lot of Taco Bell's new tacos haven't impressed me much in the past. 

But that all changed with the Cantina Crispy Melt Taco. Unlike many fast-food tacos, it had plenty of deliciously seasoned beef, and the veggies didn't taste stale — nor did the crispy white-corn shell. What surprised me most, though, was how juicy the taco was (even without any Taco Bell hot sauce). 

My parents and sister loved this taco so much, they each ordered another one.

And it wouldn't be a full Taco Bell Cantina experience without the drinks.

The Cantina Margarita, Sangria, and Mountain Dew Baja Blast.

I ordered all three of the special frozen cocktails available at Taco Bell Pacifica: the Cantina Margarita, the Mountain Dew Baja Blast, and the Sangria. 

While the Cantina Margarita tasted a little too artificial for me, I loved the Baja Blast and the Sangria. Both were super refreshing, and the Sangria was definitely my favorite. It reminded me a bit of frosé, with just a hint of sweetness. 

While Taco Bell Pacifica's views are amazing, you don't need a beach to appreciate the chain's new menu items.

I would definitely order all of Taco Bell's delicious new menu items.

Taco Bell is back in great form with its two versions of the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito, along with the Cantina Crispy Melt Taco. All three menu items were packed with tons of flavor, fresh ingredients, and delicious sauces. 

I'll definitely be ordering all three again, no matter which location I'm at. And I can't wait to see what Taco Bell comes up with next.
