A 106-year-old woman in Phoenix likes to think outside the bun when celebrating her birthday, so she had a party at one of her favorite restaurants — Taco Bell.

Myrtis Jewel Painter invited family and friends to a Taco Bell she's commonly visits.

People brought her gifts and the employees even decorated the entire restaurant for her. 

Painter was born in east Texas in 1912 and moved to Phoenix in 1932, where she met and married her husband and helped run a family shoe business for years.

So, what'd she eat? Tacos and Mexican pizza.

One also has to think... What's her hot sauce of choice?
