Taco Bell, 2632 Decker Boulevard: 30 June 2011 (moved)   5 comments

Posted at 11:30 pm in restaurants

Well, another of the old-style "southwestern" Taco Bell locations has bitten the dust. This one is on Decker Boulevard sort of across from Dent Middle School and next to the old Popeye's / Aloha / Best China/ etc location. While I like the look of this older Taco Bell, the lot and building did have the disadvantage that the drive-through was done through the passenger side window, which is not optimal.

I also like that the manager (or whoever was assigned to do it) was apparently a gardener, taking care to put the "what variety is this" stakes out by the flower plantings.

With the closing of this building, the Taco Bell franchaise moves down towards Two Notch several blocks, setting up shop in a new building at the corner of Decker and Trenholm Road extension on the lot formerly housing Grandy's (whose forlorn building was finally torn down to make way for the new one).

UPDATE 23 December 2011 -- As noted in the comments, Nick's Gyros & Seafood is going in. Since their current location on Two Notch in the old Wendy's building is less than a mile from here, I would guess they are moving rather than adding a new location. I probably would have checked them out by now, but I'm not willing to put up with seafood smell to have a greek salad..

UPDATE 15 January 2012 -- Well, the Nick's is open in this location. (And contrary to my speculation, the first Nick's on Two Notch remains open as well):

  1. Taco Bell is really overhauling their restaurants. I've never eaten there (and don't intend to) but I can tell they are really revamping their image and from what I've read McDonald's is about to embark on something similar on their restaurants

  2. Back in the 80s there were very few Mexican places in town and at the time I thought that Taco Bell, or any other Mexican food chain, would never make it big here. Boy was I wrong!

  3. The guy that owns this owns all or at least most of the Taco Bells in town. He's a good guy and really likes to do a lot for the community. I took a lot of marketing and business related courses in high school and he would always lend his time or money to our projects. Glad to see he's not giving up on Decker the way so many people have.

  5. Nick's already has a place in the former Wendy's at 7355 Two Notch Road so does that mean that there is someting planned for that site (since next door is a former Hess Station that has sat vacant for years)...
