Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Because there are certain times when leaving your couch to drive to Taco Bell is just, the fast food giant will now bring the gorditas to you.

Taco Bell has partnered with delivery service DoorDash to make deliveries from 200 stores in 90 cities across the country, including areas like Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco and Dallas, according to the L.A. Times. That's right, starting today, hungry (and/or inebriated) customers in select areas will be able to order from the Bell's breakfast and all-day menus.

All you have to do is place your order through the DoorDash website or on its app.

It seems delivery was the company's top request from customers, according to CEO Brian Niccol. Perhaps followed closely by Cap'n Crunch Crunch Berries-flavored donut holes and more boozy Bells.

The company began smaller tests with the delivery service earlier this year. And should the expanded coverage go well, we're likely to see Taco Bell arriving at doorsteps in other areas serviced by the DoorDash app, including New York, Boston, D.C. and Chicago.

While delivery costs may vary depending on where you're ordering, there's no minimum on how much you can order. But let's face it, you aren't going to order just one Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco or a solitary seven layer burrito, are you? We didn't think so.
