Since a friend told us about Del Taco (we had never tried it before), we have not gone back to Taco Bell which was our choice for fast food Mexican. There is a HUGE difference between those two chains. Del Taco is so much more authentic and tasty and fresh and everything. If you have not tried it, you should... More

The staff at this Del Taco is very friendly and attentive. If you are like me and like your food a certain way, with or without add on's these folks make sure your food comes out the way you order it every time. The restaurant is kept extremely clean including the restrooms.

Del Taco is one of my favorites for a quick, cheap eat. My favorite is Del Taco #2 in Barstow, CA. The Tehachapi Del Taco is perhaps the worst in the chain. Cold limp french fries with your combo, check! Make a special request like extra sauce or no onions, good luck. Check your order, I bet you are a... More

They tend to be busy during eating hours, which is a clue! Place is clean, food is hot and you get a good serving. Staff is friendly. We've always been happy with our experience here.

The food is always hot and fresh, which is saying something for fast food! We go here frequently. The 12-pack is cheap and tasty. We take it home and munch throughout the week...when I don't have time to make dinner or we want a quick microed lunch.

I love the Veggie Works burrito and the curly fries. Good selection and the burgers are good also. Wish they had Dr. Pepper.

The new breakfast tacos are nicely priced but the bacon had a funny taste and overall they were too greasy. I liked that they gave free hash browns if I bought two tacos.

Better value and menu then the other taco chain. They have a lot of combo meals for a fair price. They also have fries.
