Wahoo!!!!!

This DT bad boy was right beside the hotel and open 24/7!!

It's been quite awhile since I 'dined' at Del Taco so I gorged myself on Fish and Shrimp tacos (two for $4!!), a MACHO combo burrito and chocolate shake with an epic carne asada burrito to-go (late night snack!) all to the surprise of my kids who don't normally see the dad chow down quite like that.

I'll have to workout for an extra week but it's so worth it!!

It was a pleasure to re-visit you after too many moons away. I love you Del Taco!

Del Taco Brings Back Poppers Drinks With New Line of Flavors

Del Taco Restaurants, Inc. (NASDAQ: TACO), the nation’s second largest Mexican quick service restaurant* announces the return of a fan-favorite beverage, Poppers. The drinks first popped onto Del Taco’s menu for a limited time last June and have returned with fresh new flavors. Popping pearls has remained a popular beverage choice over the years but had not appeared on the menu of any major quick-service restaurant until Del Taco’s launch of Sprite® Poppers last summer, Market Watch has reported. 

This year, Del Taco is introducing Mini Shake Poppers alongside the Lemonade Poppers which includes two different flavored popping boba consisting of colourful fruit juice that bursts with flavour when you bite into them. The new Poppers are available for a limited time only.

Del Taco offers its foodies the following drinks:

Lemonade Poppers: This drink is refreshing Minute Maid® ZeroSugar Lemonade that features round bursts of blueberry or peach flavored popping pearls served over ice. You can avail this drink in regular or large size also.

Mini Shake Poppers: This drink features round bursts of blueberry or peach popping pearls to a mini version of Del Taco’s cult-classic premium vanilla shake.

“When we launched Sprite® Poppers last year, it quickly became a sought-after beverage for our fans and many took to social media to share the full sensory experience of the beverage,” said Tim Hackbardt, Chief Marketing Officer at Del Taco. “Because of its viral popularity and uniqueness to our category, we knew we wanted to bring it back and share new ways for our guests to experience Poppers.”
