Wisconsin's first Del Taco (http://www.deltaco.com/) is set to open in Janesville. It's located next to the new Menards at the Highway 26 exit.

Lotsa Whataburgers in the DFW metroplex. I ate at one once, and it wasn't anything special. IMHO

Now, Jack in the Box is a restaurant we need here.

Wasn't there a gay bar or swingers club at East Towne back in the 70s?

The Del Taco in Janesville opened last week. I went today... and had a double cheeseburger and fries. Seriously. I didn't know they served burgers. The burger was okay, but the fries were bland.

I also had a chicken soft taco. They use grilled chicken slices in their soft taco and not the regurgitated stuff that Taco Bell and Taco John's use. It was pretty good.

UPDATE!

I'm fairly certain that the Don Pablo's in Rockford has closed.
