Official announcement from the Naugles business team:
Naugles Corporate Test Kitchen
WOW! The Naugles fans rock! The response to our soft opening of our Corporate Kitchen was much more than we could have expected. Because of the overwhelming response, we had to temporarily close our doors to meet requirements from the city and our landlord. The good news is WE ARE BACK. Our hours of operation will be Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00am – 5:00pm. We will be open on the weekends to serve our great Naugles food until our first restaurant (yes, with a drive-thru) opens. Looking forward to seeing all of you again!

The Naugles fast food restaurant chain was founded by Dick Naugle in 1970 with 225 locations prior to merging with Del Taco in 1988. Naugles lasted only 7 years after the merger with the final location being closed in 1995. It featured an American and a Mexican kitchen. Popular items included the cheese burrito, the bun taco, the combo cup w/ chips, the Naugleburger, the Ortega burger and more. A new business group formed in the last few years has been working on bringing the chain back and recently opened a corporate kitchen with plans to expand to more locations. This effort is not affiliated with Del Taco nor with any other prior owner of the brand. Original concept, new company.
