Pacifica Taco Bell in the News—Again!

"Pacifica has some excellent landmarks in full view from the Pacific Coast Highway. Sea Bowl forever! But we’re highlighting the greatest Taco Bell on the planet, in a beautiful wooden building with beach views, a walk-up window for surfers and the same prices as every other Taco Bell." (#23 on a list of tourism-free landmarks in the Bay Area, San Francisco Chronicle, August 17; note that locals say Highway 1, not Pacific Coast Highway, a Southern California thing)


I Think It's Turning Japanese, I Really Think So

New Restaurant

A Japanese restaurant with the unpronounceable name Uoyakutei has moved into the old Prime Dip/Boston Bill's/KFC site on Highway 1 at Rockaway Beach, where the weeds had grown as high as the roof. We wish them luck, and maybe Alan Wald will have some fun with their name. Grand Opening signs are up on the building now. Please review the food and service, then hit the Comments link below this post to share your review. Keep it friendly but honest.

Manor Post Office Missing in Action

I wonder if the city would do Pacificans a favor by nudging the U.S. Postal Service to repair the Pacific Manor post office, which has been closed for repairs for more than two months. The easily overlooked van is sometimes open for business. Patrons have to wait in the winter wind and rain to do business there. The hours of the van are not posted, and even a postal employee didn't know the hours when I asked. The van was closed four days in a row last month. After three attempts to mail my packages there, I gave up and mailed them from Daly City. The postal service has given no indication when or whether the building will be repaired and open for business again.
