The First Del Taco, Yermo, California

“Ed Hackbarth and David Jameson opened the first Del Taco in Yermo, CA in 1964. With a menu of 19¢ tacos, tostadas, fries and 24¢ cheeseburgers, Del Taco brought in $169 in sales on its first day in business – the equivalent of 900 tacos.”

Seems that the Del Taco pictured above opened in 1961, predating the one that opened in Barstow in 1964. It was originally named “House of the Taco,” er, um, “Casa del Taco.”

$169 in 1961 is about $1,500 in 2020 dollars. Not a bad first day.

UPDATE: Ed Hackbarth Jr. points out that Dave Jameson had nothing to do with the Del Taco Yermo. He joined Ed Hackbarth later 1964-65, opening the Del Taco in Corona CA. – Thanks, Ed.

Eat A Sheet O’ Meat

VMD and USWs compress hundreds of calories into an MRE about the size of a golf ball.

I want one that tastes like Skyline Chili but I’d settle for a marble-sized eggamuffin.

Colonel-San

There are waaaaay too many things wrong here. The polkadot yukata for example. Did the Colonel ever serve watermelon in the Kentucky Fried Chicken franchises? Not in my memory. But to tell the truth, I’m ticked that KFC doesn’t deliver their buckets o’ artery-clogging flavor to my house anymore. I can only take so much pizza.

She’s upset because you won’t hug him, you selfish bastard.

C’mon now. Her beetle needs loving, and you just don’t care, do you?

G’wan, hug it. Its name is “Sirpaul.”

“Please, sir, may I have some urchins?”
“If you don’t eat yer snails, you can’t have any urchins! How can you have any urchins if you don’t eat yer snails?!”
