Oviedo Del Taco Celebrates Grand Opening
With Florida’s Largest Burrito

(Oviedo, FL) June 24, 2009 – -- There’s a new taco in town and it’s time to party! On Saturday, June 27, Del Taco will celebrate the grand opening of its first Florida location with family entertainment such as face painting, games and prizes, free hot air balloon rides and a giant Macho Burrito that will be hand-made, cut and served at 5 pm. The new Del Taco is located at 3551 Dovera Drive in Oviedo.

The giant-sized replica of Del Taco’s popular Macho Burrito features 15 ov erlapping flour tortillas filled with beans made from scratch, taco meat, red and green sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole and freshly grated cheddar cheese. The burrito will be assembled, then cut and served.

Del Taco is okay sounds like fun for kids tho!
which brings to mind, what is your favorite tex-mex or mexican place in Orlando currently? The best I ever had was in Texas...wow.

    I started a Chowhound thread last year on Chilango's in Winter Springs, and I still love them like crazy. It's really hard to get good, authentic Mexican food around Orlando, but they're the best around. Chilango's is a tiny place, but the food is always good and fresh, the family who runs it is incredibly nice, and their prices are excellent.
