Fast Food Restaurants Can Look Nice Too

Every time I drive past the Taco Time in Wallingford, I ask myself, “How is it possible for a Taco Time to look THAT good?” Every other standard Taco Time in Washington looks like a normal fast food restaurant, but not this one. The one in Wallingford has beautiful glass windows and is modern looking in a neighborhood that is…not. Its mint sheen makes the restaurant’s exterior extremely attractive and though I have never eaten at this location, its appearance alone makes me want to.

It didn’t make Flavorwire’s list of of Most Beautiful Fast Food Restaurants in the World, but Starbucks’ Tukwila location did!

Check out the rest of the restaurants here.
