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... read more

The food here was surprising fresh for a fast food restaurant! The tacos were very good and the quesadilla was delicious. We wish Del Taco was located closer to where we live!

We always stop here on our way to or back from California. The Barstow tacos are the best ever!!! The restrooms are always stocked and clean. This place has not changed in 40 years. What a treat!!!

Great stop where all the locals go to eat. The ORIGINAL Del Taco is actually located in the town of YERMO so you might want to wait to eat there (10 minutes away).

My home town Del Taco has not changed and so glad it has not. Only wished the Del Taco's in Fort Worth, TX would come to Barstow and learn the original Del Taco way.. Missing Barstow Del Taco already.

The first times that I ate at Del Taco were in the late 60s and early 70s, at the business located on First St. near the railroad yard. After the opened the other location on West Main and started serving breakfast burritos I started doing business several times a week with them.
