I found thisAnyone remember Taco Rancho? There was a location in West Knox, near West Town Mall. Another in Chapman Hwy. Small little Taco Bell type joint. It may have been a drive thru only...I was a young lad during the 80s when they were around
Okay I just got to thinking recently about some of the classic restaurants, stores and dives we have had in K-town. Just on the Pike from We...
The first place that comes to mind just simply because I used to eat there so much with my old man is Taco Rancho on KP about a mile or so east of West Town. Man I loved that joint! The layout of the place was so unique (if memory serves me correct it was just like a big tee-pee sort of dining area with picnic-like benches outside) and the tacos, as I remember, were ten times better than the just arrived TBell. I do believe it was that vile Taco Bell in front of the former K-Mart building that put my beloved Rancho out of business! My memory is a bit hazy about when Taco Rancho officially ceased to be, but I'm thinking 1985 at the most. Oh how I long for the days of pulling into the drive-thru and getting a load of hard shells in their patented cardboard boxes. Delicious.
