Small drive through Hot-dog and Taco stand chain in and around Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. Locations sold to Wienershcnitzel and Tommy Burger in the mid-1980's. Pup'N'Taco was dirt cheap, and a great place for zitty faced punk rockers to have thier first job. Served the infamous Taco Dog, which was a hot dog bun filled with taco meat and topped with cheese. Ref. see also "Naugles". Only people of a certain age remember the Pup'N'Taco. If YOU remember the PNT - you are way more OC than Mischa Barton could ever hope to be.
Pup and Taco
Pup or Taco
Contrary to the other listing in here, it was sold to Taco Bell in 1984. The "taco dog" was actually called a "Taco on a bun". The last remaining location was in Pasadena and the name was changed to Pop'n'Taco. I know because I worked at the Alhambra,CA store for 5 yrs. and our district supervisor Mike VanSickle bought the store in Pasadena.
