Del Taco Menu Prices

Del Taco

Del Taco is an American-style Mexican fast food restaurant.  The restaurant serves classic Mexican dishes, which include tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and nachos. The chain also serves American favorites, such as hamburgers, crinkle-cut fries, and milkshakes. The restaurant states that its menu items taste better than other restaurants because they are made to order and consist of fresh ingredients. Examples of the fresh ingredients include slow-cooked beans made from scratch, hand-grated cheddar cheese, hand-made pico de gallo, and freshly grilled marinated chicken.

In 2014, the chain launched its “UnFreshing Believable” campaign to celebrate its 50th anniversary. This campaign indicated the measures taken by the company to deliver quality made-to-order menu items created with freshly-prepared ingredients. The restaurant serves over three million guests each week. The establishment has been named as having the “Best Value for Your Money” in an annual survey on “America’s Best Fast Food (and the Worst)” in the nation’s leading consumer review magazine. The survey was based on the opinions of 96,000 diners who ate at 65 restaurant chains throughout the nation.

History

In September 16, 1964, Ed Hackbarth and David Jameson opened the first restaurant in Yermo, California. The restaurant was very successful. This success led to the opening of more restaurants. Dick Naugle soon joined Hackbarth and Jameson, and they established Red-E-Food Systems, Inc. to franchise the Del Taco brand. The chain expanded throughout the Southern California area. Dick Naugle left the company in the early 1970s.The company changed its name from Red-E-Food Systems to Del Taco, Inc. The establishment continued to grow rapidly.

In 1976, Jameson and Hackbarth sold the store to investors, who then sold the rights to use the Del Taco name in the U.S. to W.R Grace and Company. The establishment continued to expand and by 1978, there were 100 restaurants. The menu also expanded to include additional items such as the bun taco, quesadilla, and ice cream sundaes. In 1988, Del Taco merged with the Naugles’ restaurant chain. Dick Naugle had started the Naugles’ restaurant chain back in the 1970s. This merger allowed the chain to increase in size and geographic reach. The restaurant also started to stay open all night.

The establishment began to launch a series of initiatives to promote the brand’s image and also improve the entire customer experience. These initiatives included new designs for the restaurants as well as the logo. The company regained its exclusive rights to its name from W. R. Grace and Company, after which it was able to expand outside of California. The company decided to open locations in the Las Vegas, Nevada, St. Louis, Missouri, and Northeast Corridor markets. The establishment doubled in size and by 2008, opened its 500th restaurant. The establishment also re-opened in Texas and Georgia and expanded into Colorado and the Pacific Northwest.

The company unfortunately filed for bankruptcy in 1993. The combination of high cost leases and the three-million-dollar lawsuit from a former supplier, led to severe financial difficulty for the company. The company fluctuated in size between 1994 and 1998. The restaurant had decreased to 325 stores by December 1998. Sagittarius Brands, LLC purchased the establishment in 2004. By January 2008, the company had increased to 500 restaurants. On June 30, 2015, Levy Acquisition Corporation purchased the company. The establishment went public on that day. Today, the chain has numerous locations throughout the United States, primarily in the Western region.
