Orange County residents might remember the fast food chain Naugles, which was a competitor to Del Taco and Taco Bell in the 1970s and 80s before eventually going defunct. Several years ago, a savvy entrepreneur was able to revive the brand, opening locations in Fountain Valley and Huntington Beach. When the reborn Naugles opened its doors, Gustavo Arellano couldn’t wait to try the throwback tacos, cheese burritos, and burgers to see if they stood up to his memories.
