Visitors who see this space age building for the first time can be forgiven for believing some sort of alien UFO landing has occurred. The former Phillips 66 gas station has been home to Del Taco for past several years and has been a frequent stop for students attending a university nearby.
The latest word is the building owner would like to demolish this architectural gem and replace it with something more mainstream. According to this St. Louis Post-Dispatch article, preservationists are working to save the structure and a Save St. Louis Del Taco Facebook group has now formed. Thousands of supporters have "liked" the page and the number continues to grow. Visit the Facebook page for more information on how to help save this space age structure from demolition. 06-11
