    I affectionately dubbed this the leaning tower of Taco Bell.

    I always referred to it as the Saddest Taco Bell in the World. Every time I drove past at dinnertime, there was a line snaking through the already-full dining room at the Chipotle next door and not a single customer waiting at Taco Bell.

    You only needed to come back at 2am.

    Hillariously untrue.

    The Taco Bell on Livingston east of Alum Creek is finishing up a complete tear down / rebuild. Maybe its a regional image refresher.

    Same with the one on Tussing at Gender and a couple others around town.

    I’ve seen Burger King’s getting remodeled also lately.

    That one was getting really beat down inside. It also seemed quite a bit smaller than most fast food joints are around here these days. It had way more parking capacity than seating capacity even after you account for the workers.

    Wouldn’t the roaches spread to the surrounding areas and come right back once the new building was done? They are roaches, you know.

    If they could only improve the food with a new building…

    I don’t like how they changed the chicken. It has less flavor now.

    I still love to eat there, every couple months, usually drunk. The regret is the next day.

    For what it’s worth, this Taco Bell was originally built as a Zantigo and was converted to a Taco Bell in 1986 or 1987 when the Zantigo chain was bought by PepsiCo from RJR/Nabisco.

    I ate a lot of Zantigo lunches when I worked in the Grandview area. While Taco Bell is pretty much a late night drunken indulgence, Zantigo was a solid choice for a decent fast food meal.
