My entire life I've had a VERY STRONG opinion about a restaurant that I've never had. I thought this restaurant was terrible, not worth my money, not worth my time, gross food. And for some reason... I decided to give it a try, and I WAS SHOCKED!


Now, if you asked me last week to rank the BEST Fast Food Taco my list would've been:

  1. Taco Bell
  2. Taco Time
  3. Jack In The Box
  4. Del Taco

And then the Fast Food Taco Gods shined down on me, and opened my eyes.

I ordered their taco FITTINGLY named... The Del Taco. It's a hardshell taco with meat, cheese, lettuce and tomato. Of course, I told them NO LETTUCE AND TOMATO! I expected the same thing I would get at Taco Bell... A little bit of meat, and an even smaller amount of cheese. OH BOY WAS I WRONG! There was probably AT LEAST double the amount of meat in this taco, and maybe 4x the amount of cheese compared to Taco Bell. YES! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! But... How does it taste? Moment of truth...

I bite in... I hear angels singing. The shell doesn't crumble to pieces. It doesn't instantly break in half with the meat and cheese pouring out. It stayed together. It's a miracle. My tastebuds are dancing. THIS IS WHAT A TACO IS SUPPOSED TO BE!

Del Taco, I was wrong. I judged you unfairly. I didn't give you a chance. I thought you were like the other guys. You're not. You're a gift.
