It's a joyous day for Mexican food lovers who've gone without "super nachos" from a popular chain restaurant for nearly seven weeks now. Taco Casa re-opened it's doors to customers today after a fire in early March forced the restaurant to temporarily close.
Tables stayed full today, not to mention the line of hungry customers went out the door. And the line of customers waiting to go through the drive-thru wrapped around the building twice.
Taco Casa employees didn't have to worry about going without a job during the down time, though. They helped rebuild the restaurant and kept their skills up while working at the restaurant's Vernon location.
Night Assistant Manager Troy Burson said, "It means a lot because a lot of people wouldn't do that. They wouldn't try to take care of you. They'd let you fend for yourself while they built up."
General Manager Woody Park said, "We love our customers. I want to see our customers. I'd much rather be making burritos than building a building."
The owners plan to expand the restaurant into the former Exxon side of the building in about two months.
