Following the footsteps of Irvine-based In-N-Out Burger, Del Taco plans to expand its Southern California brand to Texas.

I guess we'll stop earlier now.
Del Taco is not new to Dallas or to Texas. I worked at one in Texarkana in 1981. They used to be all over the DFW metro area,
Who'd want their food anyway? They use "extenders" (=oatmeal) in their meat. If you want a taco, go to one of those greasy mom and pop joints in the Mexican strip mall, not to Smel Taco.
we love to EAT out in TEXAS. In Lubbock, TX it is even higher percentage of people per capita.... on the eating out issue.
LOL Damn, you are from Florida!
It's "Quesadilla", FRiend.
There are various styles of Mexican food. TexMex is just one.
One I don't prefer.
If the Californians moved back to where they came from it would be places like Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and assorted cold places. The California paradise was ruined by people importing themselves into it from across the country. Let’s ease up on “Californians” I say. It is not any particluar state identity, rather it is people who just move somewhere to take advantage of its employment, culture or weather and then proceed to start changing it right away. THAT is what everybody resents. If people would come to a place and keep it as they found it instead of trying to remake it into the bad place they left, everybody would be fine with it I think. People just keep running away from leftists instead of standing their ground.
Michigan already has had Del Tacos. Now please send us a Taco Bueno, and a Whataburger!
Some Texan friends had my wife and me over once for enchiladas. I had no idea why there was chili on them.
It wasn't too bad.
Have you tried El Taquito on East Grand and RLT? I had to stop by there on my last visit to Dallas.
My problem? I post about Del Taco coming to Texas, creating hundreds of jobs, 70 to 80 stores, pretty good food....and among other things I read....”Californians should get out of Texas and take their shitte food with em”....and “just what Texas needs another Taco stand”.....”I feel sorry for Texans”...etc etc. etc.
I have no problem.....Most Texans are cool.....nice.
But some are pricks....now...what’s your problem?
“If the Californians moved back to where they came from it would be places like Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and assorted cold places. The California paradise was ruined by people importing themselves into it from across the country. Lets ease up on Californians “
AMEN!! and AMEN!!
I always misspell it .......my bad.. “marie callendars”
The Original full restaurant is in the city of Orange, CA. On Tustin....been there many times....great old pictures on the wall there.....
The only problem I have with you is not your tacos but your foul language. That is not needed to express yourself. name calling is not cool.
A witness first reported the sewage in the kitchen to the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health after he smelled it on Thanksgiving, and health inspectors gave the restaurant a citation. But on Monday, the city of Carlsbad's Wastewater Division gave the restaurant's manager the opportunity to close ---- or have the water supply cut off ---- after witnesses reported a flow of sewage running from Marie Callender's into a storm drain leading to Cannon Lake.
Ugh. I cant go back.
Oh....I must have missed your admonition to the guy who started it all by saying we should take our “shitte” back to Ca.
Just kidding about the cat! But yeah, you can't walk too many blocks before running into one.
I miss them! The local Mexican food around here is either Del Taco or bland ‘honkified’ sit down places. Lots of Mexicans everywhere too, and I smell them cooking some damn fine food, but for themselves! My Indian neighbors are even worse! Try eating a PB&J when they are cooking some dynamite curry right next door!!!
I think if you stopped going to restaurants that were written up by the health department at least once.....you’d pretty much have nowhere to go.......no?
Yeah. But I still can't get past that one.
Thanks for the heads up on El Fenix. I have heard both good and not so good about it......but I didn’t know they deep fried their own taco shells....i.e. not preformed Taco Bell.
As for Del Taco....I don’t care about the tacos.....those are same as I get anywhere here in Texas...it’s the burritos.the hot sauce...and the fries are great too.....
They just closed up here after only a year. So many businesses have closed and keep closing up. I really enjoyed there tacos!
Yeah...that is a tough one to get by....I agree.
There is a place here in the Dallas Metro Plex...I think in Arlington called “San Diego Tacos.” and I have been told and read I should try it....they say it’s very good.
You are delusional....California wasn't ruined by people from the midwest...it became a socialist shit hole from spoiled 2nd and 3rd generation Californians who have no work ethic. I was part of a hotel operation that opened a hotel in the early 80's out in the armpit of SoCal in Ontario....when I questioned why someone wasn't at work I was told.."The surf's up".....when I told a manager to fire the SOB...I was told...well we just have have to hire another just like him/her...that my friend is why California is in the shape they are in....."The surf isn't up anymore"...
In the Nashville area there was a Del Taco/Captain D’s combo store. It has since changed back to a Captain D’s
I have heard of a Lynxus Rufus (Bobcat) what, pray-tell, is a Verginius Rufus?
Del Taco is all right. Prices are reasonable. My wife suspects they use TVP in their beef, however. (I don’t argue, she has a great palate)
He said he wanted Californians to go back home and take their shitte food with them.....
yeah.....that’s really funny. I still say he’s a Dick for saying that......
Verginius Rufus was a Roman general who twice refused his soldiers' efforts to put him forward as emperor (AD 68-69 period). He was consul three times and when he died the historian Tacitus gave the eulogy. He symbolizes the fact that there can be decent and honorable people even when those at the head of the government are totally corrupt--or incompetent.
I like Diocletian. He divided the Empire into two more manageable pieces, and then retired. When an old friend wrote to him and asked him to take up the sword again to stop the inevitable corruption injustice etc, he wrote back...
“If you could see the size of the vegetables I grow in my garden by my own hand, you would not talk to me any more of Empires.”
Bonus Round Question:
*Why did Taco Bell change the item frijoles to pintos & cheese?
Looks like I was right.
Maybe a university study has found that “Mexican style
chains” (restaurants) “were most likely to make you
ill” but my own study has found that almost all
universities make ME sick.
“You are delusional....California wasn’t ruined by people from the midwest...it became a socialist shit hole from spoiled 2nd and 3rd generation Californians who have no work ethic.

I have to agree with Amima Mundi....You use Ontario as your concept of what California is/was like? Really? Ontario - the gateway to Fontana. Used to be run down grape vineyards and now it’s just concrete and rooftops. I was born and raised in SoCal and it was a paradise. Now, not so much. We all used to hope that it would be a crappy day when the Rose Parade was on tv so everyone watching in the cold and snow wouldn’t pack up and move out....
As for Del Taco....love it and miss it. Bean and cheese burritos with red or green sauce..and their Double Del Burger...yum! Now I gotta hope they come to Houston...
Surfs up! Grab your board, dude!!
I could have swore I ate at a Del Taco when passing through Texas once. Just another example of the memory not always being reliable...
SORRY, MY ITALIAN WAS LEAKING OUT............
No self respecting Texan is going to eat Taco Bell thats not even Tex-mex yuck I would rather eat road kill. If you have the stomach to eat roach coach and not get sick DFW has plenty of authentic taco trucks running around. One comes up to campus at brunch time to our construction site giant tacos for like a buck 50. None of the kids have the stomachs to eat it, I do I spent years eating coach food in Austin...Drunk East Riverside Drive at 4am outside Club Carnival yum I can still taste the AL Pastor
Did they get it fixed yet? Sending the spouse out next week and she'll want to check it.
If you're not already here in Texas make this another reason not to move here.
