You’ve Never Seen A Fast-Food Restaurant Like This Utah Taco Shop
We rarely write about chain restaurants, but every once in awhile, one comes along that seems like an exception from the run-of-the-mill fast-food eatery.
When you drive past this Taco Time restaurant, you might not immediately realize that it's a fast-food place. The outside is brightly colored, and covered with metal sculptures and artwork.
This Taco Time location is at 810 S. State St., Salt Lake City, UT 84111.
Step inside, and you'll see decor that's more like a traditional Mexican restaurant than a fast food place.
The brightly-painted walls and Mexican-inspired decor are definitely not the beige, bland atmosphere of other fast-food joints, and in fact, this particular Taco Time location is much fancier than the chain's other stores.
You can check out some of the art work while you wait for your turn to order at the counter.
Make no mistake, this restaurant might be dressed up more than others, but the food served here is definitely fast food. Menu items are served wrapped up in paper with little sauce packets on the side.
Taco Time got its start in Eugene, Oregon back in 1960. Today, the fast-food chain has more than 300 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada. Get your fix at any of them - in true fast-food fashion, the tacos and burritos are the same no matter what location you visit, but if you're looking for a little more atmosphere, head to the Salt Lake City shop.
