Now known as the “Starbucks Saucer,” most have called it the “Del Taco Saucer” after the taco-joint that resided there. This 60s era – saucer-inspired – architectural wonder began as a gas station. Back in 2012, activists (architecture and saucer enthusiasts alike) saved the structure from demolition.
