Taxi's on Newell Avenue is closed.
Another Walnut Creek hamburger joint has closed. I was told by the manager of one of the other businesses in the center that the rent had increased and Taxi's couldn't afford their corner location. Too bad. They had great burgers.
Burger joint scores big with thick shakes and classic diner fare.. In Short Taxicab memorabilia and individual jukeboxes at each table give this lively chain a diner vibe, but exposed brick, a long line of shiny taps and TVs screening sports evoke a college sports bar. The kitchen churns out American favorites like burgers, hand-spun ice cream shakes, garlic fries and more, all made to order. Healthier options include chicken sandwiches and salads.
