Road trips are an American tradition. You really haven’t lived until you’ve gone on at least one long haul across the United States. These jaunts are often accompanied by some sort of life-changing event such as graduating from school, changing jobs or an attempt to find yourself.
Or, maybe it’s because you want to hit up every Fuzzy’s Taco Shop in the United States.
Assuming it’s the latter, you’re in luck, you adventurer, you! We’ve laid out a route that’ll have you enjoying Fuzzy’s in 11 different states (and traveling through many more).
If this sounds like the trip of a salsa-lovin’ lifetime, then pack up the car and hit the road, Jack.
We start in Fort Collins, Colorado, at our two locations there. Then we move south into Longmont, then into the Denver area and hit up the Thornton and Arvada stores. Once we’ve gotten enough Rocky Mountain fresh air, we head east.
Now buckle up, because this isn’t the most fun drive (and be sure to go the speed limit — Kansas cops will getcha). It’ll be a trek, but finally you’ll make your way into Manhattan. Manhattan, Kansas, that is. Then eastward into Lawrence, then finally Overland Park, just outside Kansas City.
Now we take a detour north.
Just a quick little trip northward and slightly west and you’ll find our one and only Nebraska location in Lincoln.
The cornfields don’t stop there. Head east into Iowa until you get to Des Moines and on to Ankeny. If you drive it, they (aka the tacos) will come.
Now you’re going to backtrack a bit and head down to Kansas City, but only on the Missouri side this time. From there it’s allllll the way across the Show-Me State, in and around St. Louis. You’ve got four stops: Maryland Heights, St. Charles, Manchester and Webster Groves.
Now it’s time for another long haul. Head southeast and say hi to Nashville and Chattanooga along the way.
Once you get to Atlanta, head west and come visit us in Snellville and Athens.
Now we really head southeast into the Sunshine State to Brandon and Sarasota.
Only one stop in the Pelican State as well, just northwest of New Orleans at Baton Rouge.
Now there’s just too many to count in Texas at the moment, so we’ll let you use your discretion on which ones to visit. Start in Beaumont, travel through Houston down into Corpus Christi, up into Austin, take a pit stop in College Station and back to the northeast, toward Nacogdoches and Tyler. Come back west and finally up into DFW.
Try this: Hit all the stores in and around Dallas and then head north.
Take I-35 into the Sooner State and pay a visit to Norman, Oklahoma City, Edmond and Stillwater. Then turn southward, back to the Lone Star State.
Your first stop on the way back will be Wichita Falls. Now make your way back to DFW and hit all of the Fort Worth locations. (See what we did there?) From here, head west and make pit stops at Weatherford, Granbury, Mineral Wells and Stephenville, until you get to Abilene.
Only three Fuzzy’s to go:
Two in Lubbock (guns up!).
The last stretch is a long one. Head west (and enjoy New Mexico along the way) en route to our final stop on the trip.
You’re going to be pretty hungry and probably in Fuzzy’s withdrawal by the time you get to Tempe. It’ll be worth the wait.
Congratulations. That was one saucy road trip, friend.
Remember, we’ll love you just as much if you can only tackle one leg of the journey. We know it’s a long one. But how cool would it be to say you’ve eaten at every Fuzzy’s Taco Shop in the United States? Well, until we open more stores, that is. And when that happens, you know what that means…
