The Del Taco on first street is with no doubt better then others that I have sampled , the quality of the meat is just better and so is the cooking

Weird location. Under construction inside, no restrooms. Small. Food average. Would suggest drivethru. Looks like all the locals do that too. Gets pretty busy towards lunch time.

My family and I recently visited the oldest Del Taco located on 1st street in Barstow, CA. I use to live in Barstow and thought it would be nice to revisit this restaraunt. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the food was delicious and fresh. The "Barstow Tacos" as named on the menu were "incredible" according to my very... More

All Barstow Del Tacos(3) are great! Del Taco started here in Barstow. This is the only town you can get the entire menu Del Taco offered from its beginning and anything new added over the years. Food is always fresh and delicious! Any Barstownians that move away when they come back to visit say they HAVE to go to "Del"

This was the first and I didn't know it. After traveling South across Nevada for 6 hours, I was ready for a quick meal on my way to San Diego. Didn't want a burger or chicken, so I had Taco Bell in mind. I was almost thru town and no TB in sight. I did see a small sign that... More

Wow kinda sums this gem in the desert. Great food and friendly people. If you have tried other del tacos and don't like them you gotta try this one. This is where it all started and it is the best. Love this place and the food is super to say the least

I grew up eating Del Taco and being able to visit and dine in the original store was fun! The food was just as I remembered it should be and my husband, a first-timer, also thought it was good. Staff were courteous and food was prepared quickly.

As the food world changes there is one constant and that is the Del Taco restaurants located in Barstow, California. For many of us who have come from this small town, it is the first stop when you return. On the menu they now distinguish the tacos from our youth as "Barstow Tacos". There are no other like it throughout... More
