So we get commercials for Del Taco on our TV quite a bit. Mrs. Sippi has been mentioning lately how she'd like to try it and see if it's worth they hype. Since there's one pretty much right off the interstate on the way down yonder at Easter I'll appease her. I personally could care less but I assume we'll vote on whether or not to pay a visit and I'll lose 1 - 0. So don't try and talk me out of this. She wants to, we're doing it.
So.....with that in mind, what items stand head and shoulders above others??
I've see there's a "Secret menu". Do I need to try something off there??
Any other tips would be great. Thanks
Second the bean and cheese burritos. The green sauce tastes like actual green chile. There's now a larger, 1/2 lb. version, but I'd rather eat 2 of the smaller.
I often take long road trips through food wastelands, and frequently subsist on bean burritos. Taco Bell's are not in the same conversation with these. Del Taco's hot sauces are far superior as well, and they always seem to give me 20 or so for 2 or 3 burritos. Vegetarians on road trips: navigate from Del Taco to Del Taco.
For me, the green burrito is really the only reason Del Taco exists. As a child, I always got the burgers. Recently a claim was made that the burgers are among the best fast-food burgers in SoCal, so I tried one. The claim was manifestly false, laughable even.
I left LA 3 years ago and still crave it. As others have mentioned, I liked the chicken soft tacos, the bean burritos and the fries. My favorite was the spicy chicken burrito. I also liked to get a del combo burrito with sour cream. I would disagree with the comment on their hot sauce. I think their del scorcho sauce is one of the best in the mexican fast food chain industry.
