You've probably been to happy hour at a bar, and maybe even heard of that other famous fast-food happy hour at Sonic. But did you know that Taco Bell has a happy hour as well? It's called Happier Hour, and it'll quench your thirst for deals every afternoon.

We love happy hour deals of any kind, so we've compiled all the information on Taco Bell's happy hour menu in one spot. Here's everything you need to know in order to take full advantage of the Taco Bell Happier Hour.

Does Taco Bell Have a Happy Hour?

Yes, Taco Bell has a happy hour, and it's called Happier Hour. It was originally introduced about a decade ago in 2013, and most people don't realize the promotion is still running. 

Back then, the Happier Hour deals included some food, but now it only includes deals on drinks. Still, the happy hour prices haven't changed in all that time, which is pretty impressive for a fast-food restaurant.

Taco Bell's Happier Hour is available at locations nationwide. It's up to each individual store franchisee to participate in the promotion, however, so some Taco Bells near you might not offer happy hour pricing. Call your location or check the menu online or in the mobile app to see whether your local Taco Bell participates.

What Time Is Happy Hour at Taco Bell? 

Happy hour (a.k.a Happier Hour) at Taco Bell runs from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. everyday. 

Unlike many happy hours, Taco Bell's Happier Hour deals are available every day of the week, not just weekdays. So you can plan to enjoy a cheap Baja Blast even on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Taco Bell’s happy hour work?

Every day from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m., medium soft drinks and regular freezes are only $1 during Taco Bell's Happier Hour. You can order in-store, in the drive-thru, on Taco Bell's website, or on the chain's mobile app to get the happy hour deals.

Does Taco Bell Sell Pepsi?

Yes, Taco Bell carries Pepsi products, including Mountain Dew Baja Blast. They are all part of the Happier Hour promotion pricing for $1. 

Does Happier Hour still exist?

Yes, Happier Hour is still around, even after 10 years! Amazingly, the price for drinks during happy hour is still only $1, the same as it was when Happier Hour first started. 

If $1 happy hour deals aren't available, chances are that Taco Bell location has chosen not to offer Happier Hour. Try a different location to see if they do.

The Bottom Line

While it keeps getting harder to find a great fast-food deal, Taco Bell is giving us all a chance to score a cheap drink every single afternoon. (Maybe that's the secret to their success, because it sure isn't keeping items like the Double Decker Taco discontinued and out of adoring customers' hands.)
