Old Taco Bell on Hwy 80

20 December 2014 - 04:47 PM

This is sort of a random question. For anyone who lived on the west side of Fort Worth in maybe the 1970s, 80s or 90s might have an answer to this. Anyone remember that the drive-thru to the Taco Bell near Western Auto was on the west side of the building, after pulling in off Hwy 80, looping around in the parking lot the driver 's window would face order board (left side of car), but after pulling up the drive thru window would face the passenger window. (the right side of car)


I always wondered why that was thought it was kind of odd. Maybe it was added after the building was built?


Often times my dad would go there for food bringing me or my brother, so he wouldn't have to reach across the car. Some times he'd forget after exchanging the money he'd pull out onto Hwy 80 leaving the drive thru person hanging out the window with a bag.


But the original question does anyone know why it was built with the drive thru facing the passenger side of  the car?
