The opening of Pupatella, a Neapolitan pizzeria, in 2020 marked the end of an era for McTacoHut, the name Restonians had for a block of fast food outlets on Wiehle Avenue with Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and McDonald’s.
More changes could be on the horizon, as Taco Bell proposes to rebuild its current location at 11257 Roger Bacon Drive with a more modern restaurant with an additional drive-thru lane.
The company is seeking Fairfax County’s permission to demolish the existing 2,309-square-foot restaurant and replace it with a 2,722-square-foot building. The extra space is primarily to accommodate a larger freezer.
The more modern building will feature gray cement siding and metal panels with accents. The company also wants to reduce the number of seats for customers by 10, allowing for a total of 52 seats.
In order to meet demand, an additional drive-thru lane would be added. A patio is also planned with 13 seats.
“The additional drive-through lane will allow the applicant to provide a more efficient customer experience and respond to trends at quick service retail facilities, which are seeing increased demand for drive-through space utilization, particularly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the company wrote in the application that the county received on Feb. 16.
The company did not immediately respond to requests from FFXnow for comment.
The application is in the early phases of the county’s approval process and has not yet been formally accepted for review by staff.
