Budget-minded families and travelers make a run for America's leading taco chain.. In Short A pink and blue color scheme, white tile floors and hacienda-like arched windows combine for a subtle Southwestern motif at this fast-food chain. Founded in Southern California in 1962 by Glen Bell (who invented the pre-fab hard taco shell), this casual order-at-the-counter Mexican restaurant features classics like tacos, nachos, quesadillas and burritos. In recent years, menu offerings have expanded to include specialty items like gorditas, chalupas and cinnamon twists.
I have visited this location more than five times, and on each occasion, the restaurant facility was dirty. Food was scattered in the preparation area, employees wore uniforms that were caked in food (and didn't fit). The soda fountain on one occasion was overflowing and not attended to the entire time I was there. The music on at least one occasion was very loud.
I do not expect much in terms of service when I visit a fast food restaurant, but this Taco Bell doesn't even reach a low service standard. Thankfully, there is another location in the area.
