Right by a full-size Taco Bell drive-thru, astute drivers in San Diego will notice a more diminutive version. Modeled after the the city’s first franchise outlet, which mimicked the local Mission-style architecture. 

San Diego’s first Taco Bell was open from 1965 to 2008, and has been replaced by a more modern building, but this tiny version serves as a lasting tribute. It’s remarkably detailed, right down to the replica of the fast-food restaurant’s sign. 

You can find it on the northeast corner of College and University Aves. The tiny Taco Bell stands across from the drive-thru window, and can be visited on foot by parking in the lot.
