New Taco Bell coming to downtown?

A TACO BELL store, not necessarily the design of the one proposed for Garden Grove’s downtown (Taco Bell, Inc.)

Another fast food eatery could be coming soon to the downtown area. When the Garden Grove Planning Commission meets on Thursday, Sept. 20, it will consider site plan approval for a Taco Bell restaurant in what is now the parking lot of the Home Depot store.

Fountainhead Shrugged LLC is proposing to build a new 2,485-square foot restaurant with a drive-thru lane on the eastern portion of the lot facing Grove Avenue, north of Garden Grove Boulevard.

The downtown area is already home to a Del Taco, McDonald’s and a Starbucks. The SteelCraft development now under construction on Euclid Street two blocks to the east will add 14 new eating and drinking spots to the city’ original commercial core.

Also on the agenda is an application for a one-year time extension for the construction of a new service station with a new drive-thru convenience store on a vacant lot at 7051 Garden Grove Blvd., west of Knott Street.

Additionally, the planners will consider a general plan amendment to adopt a bicycle and pedestrian plan and to add the Garden Grove Active Streets Master Plan as an appendix.

The commission meets at 7 p.m. in the council chamber in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave.

  1. I think you mean the Eastern portion of the parking lot. The Home Depot building is on the Weatern side of the lot and Grove is on the Eastern side.
