This Taco John’s restaurant was built in 2001 to replace a different Taco John’s on the same site. The building was replaced mainly to add a drive-through window, which was prohibitive in the old building. The first Taco John’s restaurant on the site was pretty cool because it had outdoor seating with sombrero-shaped umbrellas. It is one of 5 Taco John’s locations in Bismarck-Mandan.
The site was formerly home to Arthur Treacher’s Fish and Chips, which was once a national chain consisting of roughly 800 locations. It was the state’s second Arthur Treacher’s restaurant, opened in 1977. It then became the Copper Penny, a local restaurant, from 1981 until 1983, when Taco John’s occupied the building.
