All I’m going to say is that if I were an Uber driver, I would not pick anyone up from a Taco Bell that serves booze. That has, “just burn the car and buy another one” written all over it.
Owners of a Taco Bell franchise on State Street are suing the city of Madison over denial of a liquor license.
Assistant City Attorney Jennifer Zilavy will lead the city’s defense. Zilavy said her next steps are to review and respond to the complaint.
In a complaint filed April 13 in Dane County Circuit Court, Bell Great Lakes, LLC alleges that the city’s denial was “unlawful and discriminatory” when considering the city’s prior restaurant liquor license approvals and current policy. The complaint highlights that the city approved a liquor license to Chen’s Dumpling House, located across the street from Taco Bell Cantina at 505 State Street, three weeks after the city denied a license for Taco Bell.
