Ed Hackbarth and David Jameson opened the first Del Taco restaurant on September 16, 1964 in Yermo, California. Fast forward more than 50 years later and the Del Taco chain consists of over 550 restaurants across 15 states including California, Oregon and Washington as well as in Colorado, Arizona, and Montana.
What They’re Known For
Del Taco has established and continues to strengthen its reputation for great Mexican and American food. The dual focus is understandable considering that the United States has a strong Hispanic community coupled with an affinity for its homegrown cuisine.
Why Eat Here
The wide range of items on the regular Del Taco’s menu makes it among the better fast-food restaurant chains to go to for fast, filling and fun food at affordable prices. There’s a nearly bewildering array – at least, it can be for a newcomer to Del Taco – of tacos, nachos, burritos and quesadillas. The tacos, furthermore, are divided into hard shell and soft shell tacos.
Did you know that the Del Cheeseburger and the crinkle-cut fries are classics? These items have been on the menu – and their recipes have changed little – since the first Del Taco opened in the 1960s! If you want a taste of nostalgia, both literally and figuratively, perhaps of your childhood, then a Del Taco restaurant may well be the best place for it.
The menu also has crinkle cut French fries, cheddar fries, and cheeseburgers in different flavors like Double Del, Bacon Del, and Triple Del, as well as dinner burritos. The mix of American and Mexican-style staples is heaven-sent for groups with people who can’t decide whether to get American or Mexican food in one go.
You will probably like it that Del Taco allows its customers to go “bold”, a term used to describe the addition of the chain’s secret sauce on your food plus French fries. You can then get tacos stuffed with French fries, burgers with a layer of fries and, if you’re the adventurous type, sweet milkshakes laced with fries. Yes, the latter is actually delicious although it sounds weird at first but the contrast between the sweetness of the milkshake and the saltiness of the fries makes it quite addictive.
Don’t forget to try the Del Taco beans because these are just so good! The reason: Del Taco actually slow-cooks thousands of lard-free beans every day on site, and it’s the kind of beans that you’d want to bring home to your mother.
The cheese and avocados used by Del Taco on its dishes are, in a word, amazing! The cheddar cheese has a slight tartness that brings out the flavor of whatever food it’s paired with, especially the tacos and nachos. The avocados are always freshly sliced so you don’t get the soggy slices usually served in inferior Mexican-style restaurants.
For people with a seriously large appetite, the Epic burrito will be more than enough! Yes, it weighs 16 ounces, a serious weight contender by any measure. Yes, it’s filled to the brim with juicy, succulent and savory beef, as well as flavorful beans and rice – indeed, it is epic!
But there are also food items that meet the average-sized appetite. The Regular Taco, for example, consists of a hard taco shell combined with seasoned ground beef, grated cheddar cheese, and fresh shredded lettuce – and it’s so cheap, too, without sacrificing on the excellent flavors! Add hot sauce to make it fiery, if you want.
Thee Beef CrunchTada Pizza is a combo of an American classic and a Mexican favorite. You will love biting into the seasoned beef, slow-cooked beans, and nacho cheese with a generous dose of taco sauce, cheddar cheese, and freshly diced tomatoes. Your mouth will love the crunchiness of the thick corn shell, too.
As an alternative, you can go for the CrunchTada Tostada, a vegetarian treat with its slow-cooked beans topped with crispy lettuce, cheddar cheese, and taco sauce.
The best thing about Del Taco? There’s a dollar menu that allows you to feast – gorge, if you will – on every Mexican-style and American staple your heart desires! You can order a beef taco, a couple of bean burritos and tacos al carbon with pulled pork, as well as a creamy milkshake in your choice of flavor (e.g., strawberry) for just a few dollars.
Every Del Taco restaurant has a Mexican theme with American touches. Keep in mind that it is part of a fast-food chain so there’s a casual ambiance as well as family-friendly amenities and service.
