Southport will soon have a couple more fast food restaurants, and these will come with drive-through lanes.

  Both are planned for the Lowe’s shopping center on the 2200-block of Lake Washington Boulevard, west of Jefferson. First in line is a Taco Bell, said David Tilley, Senior Planner for the City of West Sacramento.

“Certainly I would expect the Taco Bell to be open by the end of the year,” he estimated. “Right next door is a McDonalds. Both of them would be drive-throughs.”

  The burger place is not quite as advanced in construction.

  Also in progress on the fast food scene in town is a Subway’s, moving in to the former “Blue Blizz” site next to city hall on the 1000-block of West Capitol. That sandwich shop will move from its present location in the Washington neighborhood near the Tower and I Street bridges.

  Some of the other local restaurants to open in West Sacramento already in 2011 include The Eatery, a bistro-style restaurant in Southport near Nugget, and a Squeeze Inn hamburger shop on Harbor Boulevard south of the freeway.

  1. I appreciate the desire for fast restaurant options in Southport, but did West Sacramento really need a fourth McDonald’s? Or a third Taco Bell, for that matter?

  2. I agree with lowercasejae above. Im all for new fast food restaurants in West Sacramento but do we really need to duplicate the restaurants that we already have???? Why can’t we have like a Wendys, or something different where we don’t have to drive for a long time to satisfy our hunger.

    I will like the convenience of them being so close, but you make a valid point that a little diversity would be nice. I was quite happy when they put in the Weinerschnitzel….one of the last establishments I would have guessed to move in. Now if only we could get an Arby’s…..
