Remembering Rhode Island's
Good Ol' Days
The Taco Maker on Thayer Street was the best. It was a little slice of heaven after a night of heavy drinking. Their hot sauce was awesome!!!
Dead on! & blew Taco Bell away!
I remember going next door and getting a Subway Sandwich and saying how they would never make it.
There used to be one on Airport Road in warwick
Yup, they had arcade games made into the tables at one time.
I still crave me some yummy Taco Maker. I remember eating there after gigs sometimes. Everything was wrapped in tin foil. Good greasy stuff!
Taco Maker on Thayer Street was the best.. Friday nights clubbing downtown, Shooters, then head to the taco Maker for some soft flour tacos and crustos.
I remember getting "elevated" as a teenager one night with a buddy, then heading straight to Taco Maker and chowing down six of their famously greasy tacos, which were very satisfying, especially under the circumstances. Another time we went through the drive-thru, placed our order, then having the woman at the window - who had obviously worked in diners, rattle it off: "Two tacs, an ench, two cows, travelin'". Too funny!
Taco Maker and Spat's... Man. Wasn't there one by the Outlet as well?
I remember the burrito's...yummy. I think they used a pressure cooker...
About four years ago, my wife and I were travelling to the Caribbean when we saw a Taco Maker in the terminal at Marín International Airport in San Juan. Same logo and everything.
Blew Taco Bell away!
How I miss Taco Maker! I did get to have it again in 2007 when I went to Las Vegas. They had a Taco Maker in the airport and I was overjoyed to taste it again after many years!
