Taco Bell Store number 5324 is a restaurant on US 123 in Clemson, South Carolina. Generally open until after midnight, similar to other Taco Bells. The dining room is usually cold and smells of ammonia or bleach; better to get take-out or drive thru. As of September 2009 the lobby is decorated with the basic Clemson icon flags and posters, including now-outdated laminated news clippings of Ray Ray McElrathbey, who is not even part of Clemson University anymore. A photo of Dabo Swinney has been cheesily taped over a framed picture of the coach he replaced, management not even bothering to unscrew the frame from the wall. It's just tacky.
On the plus side, Clemson fans who attend a football game in which the Tigers score more than 28 points may show their ticket to Death Valley to get one free taco, hard or soft, your choice, a value of 79 or 89 cents.
Taco Bell replaced Del Taco, an Atlanta-based chain, when it was acquired by the conglomerate that controls the Taco Bell brand. The Clemson Taco Bell location closed in the fall of 2006. It has since reopened.
The old Del Taco/Taco Bell will close in June 2011 for a complete reconstruction in a new building.
The old Del Taco/Taco Bell has since reopened its doors to the town of Clemson as of Friday October 21st, 2011. The new building is of a more modern, college friendly, style and has a more welcoming, and better smelling, atmosphere than before.
