Miniature Taco Bell

This miniature Taco Bell appears to be a utility box of some sort, faithfully decorated to commemorate the first Taco Bell in San Diego. It's adjacent to the drive-thru of the more recently remodeled Taco Bell that still stands at the corner of College and University Avenues.

[Pea Hicks, 10/09/2020]

San Diego's original Taco Bell was built in 1965 and stood for over 40 years.
