tacos mexucan sandwichesAn Indiana judge’s legal declaration that tacos and burritos are Mexican-style sandwiches gave a business owner the right to his taco restaurant in Fort Wayne City. Judge Craig Bobay of the Allen County Superior Court issued the sandwich declaration in connection with the lawsuit filed by restaurant owner Martin Quintana three years ago against the Fort Wayne Plan Commission.

This was after the local neighborhood association thwarted his attempt to open another venue for his The Famous Taco restaurant. According to the association, Quintana’s The Famous Taco business did not fit an earlier agreement that the space is limited to businesses whose primary role is to make and sell made-to-order subway-style’ sandwiches.

Fort Wayne Plan Commission Refuses Amendment that Will Include Taco as Sandwiches

Finally last May, Judge Bobay ruled that Quintana’s request for amendment was not necessary since tacos and burritos are Mexican-style sandwiches. In light of the judge’s legal declaration, Mexican tacos and burritos qualify as made-to-order sandwiches.

Besides, the celebrated former Supreme Court Judge, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made a similar ruling related to hotdog sandwiches, to which she declared that sandwiches are as limitless as a person’s imagination.
