Review: Del Taco - Mini Bacon Quesadilla


Quesadilla are one of those things I don't order often because they're super easy to make at home. Still, sometimes I find myself at a restaurant and I just want one right there and then.


They aren't kidding when they call this a "mini quesadilla." It is a small snack-sized portion that might be even smaller than one of Taco Bell's mini quesadillas.


The flour tortilla was grilled to a nice, but uneven, thin and crispy brown crust.

The cheddar gives decent coverage and delivers a fairly mild flavor. Cheddar isn't so great for melting though. Blending it with some Jack would improve the melting and add more depth to the flavor. Cheese plus tortilla has always been a great combination.


The bacon was a pleasant surprise here. Del Taco's bacon delivers a good amount of smokiness and porky flavor. It wasn't abundant, but I got at least some bacon in every bite.

 I will never eat at another Del Taco again and we used to eat here once a week. I'm unsure how long the scam has been happening. I check my budget continuously and Del Taco took food out of my kids stomachs for dinner, all because I bought them mini cheddar quesadillas for lunch. We don't eat out constantly but I had a very busy and hectic day with appointments and knew we were at the disposal of fast food.
