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.
