From the outside, it looked like a normal day at the St. Matthews Taco Bell, on Shelbyville Road.
But inside, 8-year-old David Turner Jr. eagerly took orders from customers. Set up with his cousins behind the counter to help, this is the very Taco Bell his mom worked at when she was in high school.
“It’s just exciting to see him so happy,” said Elizabeth Turner, David’s mom.
Recently David kept asking his mom about how old you have to be to work at the restaurant.
“I told him 15. He told me, ‘That’s ridiculous because I could make tacos.’ And then he went on to explain a 10-year-old could make tacos and mind you, he is 8,” she said.
