Located at Kansas Turnpike Milepost 132 along with a Subway and Valero gas station and corner store at the service exit, the popular Mexican food restaurant will serve guests its one-of-a-kind tacos and signature Potato Olés® as the perfect road trip meal.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to expand the Taco John’s experience with a unique spot,” said franchisee Abdul Quddus. “We’re the perfect location for people to conveniently stop at for their road trips, making it a great way to introduce Taco John’s signature bold flavors, real ingredients and quality food to people who appreciate real value.
