DECATUR — Taco Bell, 753 E. Pershing Road, is reopened after weeks of being closed for a "top-to-bottom" remodeling, according to its franchise owner Missouri Fiesta. 

The restaurant closed on July 8 for what Decatur building permits show to have been $290,000 worth of improvements, including interior renovation of the kitchen and dining room, new bathrooms, new decor and exterior paint. 

Missouri Fiesta said J.E. Foster, a St. Louis-based construction company, handled the remodeling using local tradespeople.
