Needed a quick and easy lunch stop on our long drive. Del Taco has super friendly staff, great service and really clean! Nice surprise stop on the way to Vegas!

There isn't any other Del Tacos that are greater than the ones in Barstow. All three are privately owned and have nothing to do with the chain of Del Tacos you see elsewhere. The homemade, down home quality is the best. Everything on the menu is great, but some of my favs are Wednesdays Taco Nights, Combination burrito, their crispy... More

This is a Del Taco that is a bit out of the way unless you are going to Ft. Irwin. If you are like me then it is the last good, fast food in Barstow. I've stopped by here many times (if open) because I have made the trip to Barstow often lately in the middle of the night without... More

Went to Barstow for a day trip with my wife from Las Vegas, After hearing from my wife (California girl) about how good Del Taco is, and the original Del Taco being in Barstow, I had to try them, and I was not disappointed.

Del Taco is my favorite fast food restaurant in Barstow, The Barstow Taco is the best taco you will find anywhere.

As of being originally from Barstow, CA. If you ever wanna try something different, when ordering your food, order the California Burrito. It's a red or green burrito with fries and sour cream put into it. It's a hometown favorite.

No need to ask for extra cheese as they don't skimp. They still make the burritos the same as when I was a kid even in the same wrappers.

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.
