Del Taco Big Fat Taco

bigfattaco.jpgItís too bad that Del Taco isnít as popular as their main competitor, Taco Bell. Del Taco has an interesting menu with a number of very tasty items. For those with diverse fast food cravings, you can get a burger, fries (crinkle cut!), and a shake to go along with your taco and burrito. Their Big Fat Tacos are the best tasting item Iíve eaten at Del Taco, and may be better than just about anything on Taco Bellís menu. You have a choice of chicken or steak, both of which are juicy and well seasoned. Instead of a regular tortilla, the tacos are made using ďtaco bread,Ē which I guess is similar to the flatbread used in a Taco Bell Gordita. The taco bread is delicious Ė much better than a boring old tortilla. So, have an open mind and think outside The Bell. There are a lot of reasons to like Del Taco, and my number one reason is the Big Fat Taco.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

The only reason I haven't tried Del Taco since there isn't one near me that isn't off the beaten track. I'll have to check if that's changed or not.

OK, so on the strength of this review, I tried the Steak "Big Fat Taco." It was absolutely delicious! I never really liked the mexican fast food places before, but Del Taco could easily become one of my favorite fast-food joints! I also tried the burger that Raach mentioned. Very, very good. Reminiscent of an In 'n' Out Burger. Thanks for the tips!

I went to one down in LA once. Pretty crappy. Maybe they've gotten better or something? There's one nearby me in SF, I'll go try it for lunch at some point, they're really cheap!

Living in So Cal and having eaten at all the Senior Naugles restaurants (Del Taco, Taco Bell and the now demised Naugles), I can honestly tell that Taco Bell will NEVER get my business. Everything there is precooked. At least Taco makes everything fresh...even the beans are homecooked at the restaurant everyday. About the only thing they don't make there are the tortillas.
And yes...their Strawberry shakes are tops.
