The First Taco Bell


The wood, stucco and brick Mission-style building measured just 20 feet by 20 feet.
There was no indoor seating -- just a small kitchen, an ordering window and a few tables and chairs on the patio. A clay-tile roof, arch-shaped entryways and a large metal bell set in a cavity above the entrance lent it an air of festivity -- but no embellishment could conceal its essentially modest nature.

Your Say

Save Taco Bell?? Wouldnt it be better to abolish a place that sells chicken lips and cow anuses as food?

Knock yourselves out if that's your thing. I got food poisoning from a Taco Bell in Fresno so I won't be "saving Taco Bell."

A stern case of Montezuma's Revenge is hardly food poisoning. Ease up on the scotch bonnets.

Down around my place, Borderland, our town is about half Meskin. You'd be surprised how many of 'em go into The Taco Bell. We have BTW fifteen restaurants and ten of them are Mexican food. Go figger.
