Started in 1964 in Yermo, California, the Del Taco quick-serve restaurant chain now spans 17 states with over 530 stores, speedily serving south-of-the-border fare along with hearty American burgers. All menu items are made-to-order using fresh ingredients, such as freshly-grated cheddar cheese, homemade salsa, slow-cooked beans, and marinated grilled chicken. Several variations of tacos cradle meats such as chicken, steak, and crispy fish between corn tortillas, and burritos range from the small, intimate half-pound bean and cheese to the meaty Macho style, which refuses to ask for directions on road trips. Signature sauces, such as Del Inferno, Del Scorcho, or Mild sauce may be smothered onto any menu item for added zest. A drive-through hands out cheesy quesadillas throughout the late-night hours, passing the time until the sunrise's yellow, orange, and red hues announce its hunger for breakfast, which is served all day, including biscuit and muffin sandwiches, and breakfast burritos filled with eggs, cheese, sausage, or bacon.
