Naugles has been resurrected

NauglesRemember Naugles?

The Mexican/American fast-food chain was started in Riverside by an early Del Taco cohort — Dick Naugle — back in 1970.

However, Naugle sold the three-restaurant chain in 1979 to Harold Butler, the founder of Denny’s, and Butler grew it to 225 restaurants, with several in the Inland Empire.
