Naugles used to have cheese burritos, now that's hard core!

Oh yeah...Freakies! I used to get those at Fedco.

What about Space Food Sticks...

Hahaha! They did taste like Play-doh, but sweeter.

How about Libbyland TV dinners?

I guess we can't go on without mentioning Koogle, the flavored nutty spread that seems to have been re-branded as Nutella. The mascot was a giant plush toy.

Here is one from 1970 to 1988 & located mainly in Southern California

Naugles

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naugles

This was a Punk Rock institution in the mid to late 70s, It was one of the only places open late at that time
It was fast Mexican food that was actually pretty good, very fresh and the Burritos were huge
they where called Macho Burritos (Taco Bell bought them out in 1988 & kept the title "Macho" on the menu, but not the size of the food)

You would get a Macho Burrito that was huge and very rarely could finish the whole thing, I liked the "Macho Burrito con Queso"
the bun tacos & the taco cups.

We would stop there after shows at the Cuckoo's Nest or when we came back from a gig in L.A.

R.I.P. Naugles




Naugles. There was one right across from my house. We hung out there ALL the time. The stupid thing was to cut the picture of Dick Naugle from the ticket, then paste it over your driver's licence. There were EPIC fights in the Naugles parking lot! EPIC!

But you are wrong about one thing: it was del taco who bought them out, resulting in the "macho" food items they still have.

Those little wax bottles of flavored sugar water







I actually ran across these a few years ago at a candy store run by a vietnamese lady in the san pedro fish market area. She also had blackjack gum!

Lucas, Please excuse the brain fart, I knew it was Del Taco, but I typed Taco Bell
I avoid both these days as I like real meat in my Mexican fast food.

I remember facing off with some "High School football" ass wipes in the drive-thu a few times at Naugles.

I miss the almond duck at the Far East Cafe in Little Tokyo.

That food has been ingrained on to my DNA since childhood. It's been decades since I last ate it, but I can remember the texture and flavor like it was yesterday.

That place was straight up old-school Chop Suey style !!

The other place that I really miss is a Mexican stand in the San Gabriel Valley called Angie's Burritos. It was on Valley Blvd near Del Mar.

Growing up, my whole family LOVED that place. I remember I was there with my father in the late 1970's and he was chatting with the owner. My father asked the owner if his adult children were planning on running the business after he retired. His response... "Sure, unless someone want to pay me a million dollars for this lot, ha ha".

A year later, Angie's closed and it was redeveloped into a Chinese mini-mall.

Damn those Chinese !! (who don't eat burritos).
