Great service

That got the food out before I even sat down. Hopefully that means it was fresh! The assistance was nice too. Will go back next time I am in town.

Good food. I had a burrito and Barstow taco. Cost about nine bucks for a combo. I would go back but only on special occasions.

Great fast food! This is the original Del Taco, and is still the best! We eat here every time we come to town. The food is really tasty, and this place is easy on the budget. Eat here if you get the chance.

This is the best part about being in the desert, if you are out riding or shooting or on your way back or to vegas, you have to stop here!

I'm biased. Back in the day up to 2000, you'd bite into a Del Taco in Barstow and the juicy taco would drip down your hand and maybe as far as your elbow. Not anymore. Not as much flavor as before. Still good. Just not the best anymore.

Del Taco which we new long ago as Taco Tia has held a special place for so many of us Riffians! It exists in other towns but is not the same as Barstow. As classmates arrived for our reunion many of them reported that they just ad to stop at DelTaco before checking into their room. The great thing is... More

This is the ORIGINAL del Taco. It is the best and always has been. It is not part of the franchise system - it is still owned by the original owner

They used to be good for the company and to hang out after the party but they ain't it no more. The meat is gross and the flavor nill.

The best del TACO is the one on first street. I have always loved their food. Growing up as a child I considered myself lucky. Del TACO really needs to come out to the east coast. They are number ONE in my eyes. Thanks for always getting a great meal.
