In 1949, restaurant owners Jim and Margaret Knudson went to a friend's home for dinner where they ate their first taco. Jim was so convinced that this tasty product would have a universal appeal that he began to develop his own recipe. Jim soon added the new item to the menu at his restaurant acoeJimmy's 49er Cafeac in Grass Valley, California. He admits that his customers were less than enthusiastic about trying this new acoeTAYCOac, but he was determined to give his unique new product his best effort. In 1954, Jim and Margaret converted a 16-foot trailer into a mobile kitchen. A long-time customer had given Jim the nickname acoeJimboy,ac and so the words acoeJimboy's Spanish Tacosac were painted on the sides of the trailer. The word Spanish was added in an attempt to help customers understand how to pronouce the word taco and, as Jimboy puts it, acoeit seemed like a good idea at the time.ac
