It's Del Taco. It's a chain store for tacos and burritos. Nothing exciting, right? Well, for this particular store, you'd be wrong. This place sets the standard for how Del Taco should be done. I believe one of the original founders of Del Taco still oversees this store, and this is one of the original stores. But the quality of... More

Barstow Del Taco will spoil you to all others around the country. Barstow is home to the original and is always locally owned; and only by those who respect the quality and taste that Barstow is known for. I have eaten at many other Del Tacos far from home and always regret the moment the food hits my pallet. I... More

My heart is pounding. My palms sweating. I rub them on my jeans and take a deep breath. This moment was an eternity in the making. 25 years of eating Del Taco corporate rubbish. 25 years of consuming something mediocre (at best). 25 years I kept going back to it, though. Why? I knew. I just knew that there was... More

Best place ever! Even better than I remembered. So much tradition there. The food was awesome! Very fresh and flavorful. The Managers and servers were very friendly. One of my favorite memories from when I lived in Barstow was when my brother came racing home to tell me that Elvis was at Del Tace on his way to Las Vegas... More

The historical significance of this place is more important than the food. It's the oldest of three still owned by the family that originally started the huge Del Taco chain. As such, it has a few items that you won't find at other Del Tacos, like tostadas and "Barstow" tacos. Some reviews led me to believe this was the original... More

Food has better prices and much bigger portions Taco Bell. It's still a fast food taco joint, but we were impressed. I got the fat tacos, they were stuffed super full and were quite tasty.

No this Del Taco is not "consistant" with other Del Tacos!! It is farrrrrr superior! All Barstow Del Tacos are better than anywhere else and that is a well known fact!

Do you really need a review for a Del Taco? It's consistent with every other Del Taco in terms of quality, cleanliness and service. Kind of nice that they only offer tostadas in Barstow, as they state inside. If you want Del Taco, then I'd highly recommend. Never been disappointed and visit often. Wouldn't travel 100 miles for it, but... More

Everything we have ordered is good, and most of the time is freshly made. Portion-size is generally good, and you don't have Subway's "where's the meat?" problem. Unlike most other fast food chains, Del Taco knows and uses more spices/condiments, etc. than just salt, pepper and hot sauce. While not fine dining, it certainly is worth a stop.

For the price and what you get, can't beat DelTaco! Evident by the fact that it was packed with patrons late on a weekday night.
