    Great looking food. Fun to see the restaurant that inspired Glen Bell to switch from burgers to tacos. A segment of All Things Considered on NPR last week was about this restaurant, purporting that it was no coincidence that fast food (both Taco Bell and McDonald’s) started in San Bernardino, where for decades Route 66 travelers stopped for a few minutes to refresh themselves before getting back on the road.
