About Baker’s Drive-Thru

Baker’s Drive-Thru is one of Southern California’s most iconic fast-food chains.  The company was founded over 60 years ago by Neal Baker, a visionary who noticed that most fast-food chains either offered traditional burgers and fries, or Mexican food such as tacos and burritos, but never both.  Therefore, Mr. Baker developed the “twin-kitchen” concept, where burgers would be sold at one window, and Mexican food at the other.  Today, Baker’s Drive-Thru operates 39 restaurants throughout Southern California and employs nearly 1,500 people.  The brand has one of the most loyal customer followings in the industry, as their food boasts a healthier and cheaper option, with better service, than many of its competitors.
