I am definitely biased when it comes to Del Taco... I just love the place! My friends know me as the Del Taco apologist, and I can't say that they're wrong. I've been coming to this Del Taco since it opened during my college days, and I continue to love coming here whenever I can. They have recently remodeled the restaurant, and now it's even nicer than before - very clean, definitely nicer than other similar fast food restaurants.


Del Taco has a very nice variety of fast food to choose from that is cheap. For the price, it's very hard to beat Del Taco. Here are my recommendations:


Classic taco: A great taco modeled after Barstow Ca's, original Del Taco taco. It has a nice amount of meat and cheese. Only .99 cents!


Deluxe Chili Cheddar Fries: This is a must have! Crinkly fries with sour cream, chili, cheese, and diced tomatoes.


Veggie Works Burrito: No meat in this thing, but it has avocado and beans and rice with sour cream and lettuce. A great non-meat option that will fill you up.


I'd also recommend the chicken soft tacos, 1/2 lb bean and cheese burritos, deluxe taco (not only menu, but available), and their surprisingly good fish tacos.


Don't get me wrong and think you're going to some amazing authentic Mexican restaurant. This is FAST FOOD... so expect what that entails. But it's great for what it is.

It's Del Taco

Can't go wrong with 24 hour fast food for those midnight munchies! Chili-cheddar fries and their battered fish tacos are my recommendations.
