Del Taco

We are cruising to eat at every restaurant on State Street in Orem.


  Phil had a basketball championship game in West Jordan.  What a great team and it was sad to lose that close game and take 2nd instead of 1st Place.  What a great team! Did I say that already? It is worth saying again!  We determined to come back to State Street to eat after the game.  Partly because on Friday we were headed to Idaho Falls to participate with the fourth annual Willie Free 5k.

  I drive by the Del Taco intersection all the time.  I know about their Taco Tuesdays.  Crazy but it has been easily 10 years since I’ve eaten there – or longer.  Not the same case for John and Phil though.  Even though it is a taco place, John likes their hamburgers.  There is a Del Taco close to John’s work. Recently they have been featuring small shakes for 99 cents.  Phil likes to buy a strawberry one and a vanilla one and then mix them together.  While we were eating there, John told us a story about the beginning of Del Taco and how it was one of the first Mexican fare fast food chains (just shortly after Taco Bell) and focus was on efficiency.
