Del Taco History

Del Taco is a renowned fast-food chain restaurant that prides itself on being the 2nd largest Mexican themed eatery in the United States. Their first food joint was opened in 1961 by Ed Hackbarth in Yermo, California. It was later renamed Red-E-Food Systems before being re-branded again as Del Taco Inc. in 1973.

The company has a successful sales record registering 13 consecutive years of profitability between 1990 and 2003. Del Taco boasts 415 restaurants in America alone, with a vast presence both in states west of Mississippi and those on the Atlantic coast. Most of these outlets are open 24/7 throughout the day and night. Even though their specialty is Mexican tacos and burritos, they also have hamburgers, shakes, french fries and a large breakfast menu.

In 2000, the company signed a deal with Compass Group PLC that allowed Del Taco chains to operate on some military bases. Their first army barracks food store was opened at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Maryland. Others were also planned for foreign bases in Italy, Naples and Puerto Rico.

Unlike other restaurants that simply reheat food products cooked elsewhere and frozen, Del Taco has a reputation of preparing everything right from scratch and on site. In 2003, the business reported an annual sales turnover of $1 million per store, one of the highest ever in the industry.

Del Taco offers a versatile menu that represents the needs of various customers, with a particular emphasis on value and quality. They also have a habit of regularly introducing new tastes for the public to enjoy, such as crinkle cut fries, quesadillas, nachos and Double Del Cheeseburgers among other things. Recently the firm has been expanding its base into Washington, Texas, and Montana, having registered an average sales increase of 2.2 percent.

Most people prefer dining here because they are assured of fresh food all the time. Each item is prepared only after the customer has made an order, with various quality ingredients also on offer such as lard-free beans, red cheddar cheese and grilled chicken made fresh every hour.

  1. What’s maddening about this is that even just a year ago, most of the menu was GF – just avoid the chicken and the flour tortillas and you were fine. I would eat there several times a week. In the last year, they’ve changed the food ingredients so much that it’s off my list entirely. Why, Del Taco?! Whyyyyyy!?

  2. Thanks Christopher for the comment. Ya, it is very frustrating, especially when a fast food place goes backwards with progress. These places should be working on making it easier for us to eat, not the other way around.

  3. In 91320, CA I asked if the street tacos (Carne Asada) were gluten free, and they said no. I don’t know if that was entirely true, as the cashier didn’t know and asked the manager, however I won’t take any doubts with my daughters Celiac disease.

  4. Well, shame on me for not checking first. My first Del Taco visit was in Las Vegas and we HAD to eat there because of The Big Bang Theory, lol. I didn’t think we had Del Tacos in Michigan at that time. I had no problems with the food then. I’m at least gluten-intolerant but was never tested for Celiac since I figured out what was the problem foods and went gluten-free before being tested. Last week, we happened to be in another area of our metro area and found a Del Taco! SOOO HAPPY! I cook, so I know what should and shouldn’t have gluten in it and stuck with the hard-shell tacos. THIS time, I suffered for MANY days, which prompted me to look online regarding their menu. Del Taco is famous for REAL, FRESH food. But obviously, they’re no better than Taco Bell and use fillers. Fillers are everywhere and part of the problem people are becoming poisoned with glutens. I couldn’t be more disappointed to scratch a restaurant off my list.

  5. Their website indicates that the carne asada street tacos are GF and the avocado Fresco bowls. The staff at the new one in Chico, CA had NO CLUE about allergens and could not even tell me where to look.
