    More Trivia:

    Pup 'N' Taco . . . was begun by Russell Wendell in 1956.
    . . . Russell owned a chain successful doughnut stores in Los Angeles - Big DoNut - which featured gigantic doughnuts on top of a drive-in bakery.
    Pup 'N' Taco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Randy's Donuts . . . was built in 1952 as part of the now-defunct Big Donut Drive-In chain by Russell C. Wendell.
    Randy's Donuts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Furthermore:
    Ninety-nine stores were bought by Taco Bell in 1984, effectively ending the history of the chain. However, three operations in Albuquerque, New Mexico were not included in the deal and two still exist today as Pop 'N' Taco.
    Naysay, time for another road-trip?

    I saw Rogie Vachon at the Pup N Taco right before he got traded to the Kings.

    Speaking of Del Taco, has anyone else noticed the difference when
    you order a regular taco here in the LA area as opposed to ordering
    a taco on the way to or from Vegas? Purchasing a taco in either Barstow
    (the main stop just before with all the fast food places) or Baker, they give
    you like 3x's the fillings. I can easily eat 4 or more here in the LA area, but
    at those places I can barely eat 2. Great bargain, just a heads up for those
    driving out that way.
    My friends and I would always say: unless it's Barstow's Del Taco, all other Del Tacos sucks.

    Nommie and I were in the Barstow area this past weekend, and we had Barstow's Del Taco on the way home. It was great to have some decent tummy filling Del Taco.

    I'm sure everyone knows about the Del Taco Tuesday Night Special (3 tacos for like 99
    cents). I just noticed the Rubio's by my place also has a Taco Tuesday Night Special, their
    famous fish taco (beer battered BTW - or so they claim) for $1. I know most will think...
    "Why would I want to buy 1 taco as opposed to getting 3 for a buck"? Rubio's, though not
    a "Sharkey's", "Baja fresh", or a "Chitople" for that matter, but a definite step above TB,
    DT, and the defunct "Naugles" and "P'N'T". Just thought I would share...

    Let the taco wars begin!

    I loved this place, i do miss them. Yes all the locations of taco bell in the west la/santa monica area were all originally pup in tacos. I loved the slushes(NOT ICES OR SLURPEES THERE IS A DIFFERENCE)) In flavored grape or cherry as i recall. The chili dongs were great and nice pastramis also! Only place i get actual slushes are at the circle K gas station near Santa Monica Airport. I also feeling nostalgic for Pioneer chicken(there is one location near olympic and la brea) and Sub Machine sandwiches chain, a triple dipple ice cream from McDonalds with the real Hamburgler, Mayor Mccheese, and the rest of Mcdonalndland characters.

    I just ordered a shirt.

    This thread has made me remember some very good times growing up. Pup 'n' Taco was one of the first places that I was allowed to ride my bike to with the neighborhood kids. I loved the grape slushies and hot dogs.
