Taco House first came to Littleton in the 1960s, taking over a building that had gotten its start as a burger joint in 1961. Dora has worked for Taco House on and off since 1966; she and Don purchased the south suburban outpost nine years ago.
Don notes that the kitchen is actually a little smaller after the remodel, with fewer electrical outlets, so breakfast burrito service, which originally began at 9 a.m., won't be available until an electrician installs more outlets (which should be this week) and additional equipment can be added.
The dining room has all-new drywall and a polished concrete floor (instead of carpeting, which had to be replaced regularly) and the exterior sports a bright yellow coat of paint. The D'Andreas are expecting sign-makers to put up grand-opening banners as soon as the rain stops, so head to Littleton to help welcome back a piece of history serving cheap, honest food from a bygone era.
