Open? For What? Would You Go In?
This is the uninviting sight I was confronted with and I actually went in anyway. Would you? And I was stunned to see a few other people inside.
If you were new to the area you'd have no idea this is a Taco Bell restaurant. It's been open for years and when I pulled up I thought it was closed because there are no signs anywhere indicating it's a Taco Bell. Nowhere. It's got that standard Taco Bell look to it, but where are the signs?
Turns out this location on Maple at Sweet Home in Amherst is undergoing a renovation, an upgrade. New windows, a new look and it meant removing the signs temporarily while they work on the outside walls.
The only people brave enough to go in no doubt know that it's a Taco Bell. I pulled into the parking lot specifically to go there. If I'd been driving by I would have kept on driving assuming it was closed. I just thought it was a strange way to handle a renovation - just one sign on the door indicating they were indeed open.
By the way I went with the 3 taco and beverage combo and pretty much had the place to myself. They say the renovation should be complete within a week, including new signs.
