According to sources, Naugles was a fast-food
Mexican restaurant chain that existed from
1970 until 1988. It was founded by former
Del Taco employee Dick Naugle. Naugle had
helped to install the kitchen equipment in the
Casa Del Taco Corona store and was impressed
by its design so he soon became a partner in the
struggling business. The first Naugles restaurant
was located in Riverside, California. In 1988,
Naugles was absorbed by Del Taco.

I remember the Philadelphia location on Grant
Avenue east of the Roosevelt Boulevard. After it
was sold, it became a “Nogales” Mexican restaurant
before ending up as a “Nifty-Fifties” restaurant.
