Fast Food Review: Del Taco Double Del Cheeseburger
I don't remember my first hamburger from Del Taco but it's safe to say it was more than 20 years ago, maybe as many as 25. I remember, around that time, Del Taco selling their burgers in 6-packs and 10-packs. (I remember my Nana refusing to repeat my order in the drive-through that I wanted six hamburgers because she thought I was just teasing. Finally I convinced her that they actually sold their burgers in 6-packs and that I was planning to eat all of them. Which I did.)
I have to admit, though, that these days I rarely eat Del Taco's hamburgers. I don't remember the last time I had one - certainly many years ago. I pretty much only stick to their chicken soft tacos, with the occasional promotional item mixed in. I make hamburgers at home from time to time, as you may be aware, and at any rate there are both In-N-Out and Fatburger two miles away from me, to say nothing of fancier burgers like Green Street Tavern or Cafe 140 South. When I'm in a burger mood, Del Taco just doesn't enter into the equation.
But since the subject was brought up yesterday on the blog and Bekah said she would would like me to write about it, I am doing it now. Yesterday afternoon when Elizabeth and I were emailing about what to do for dinner, I told her the two things we had at home: pasta with pancetta and spinach or Trader Joe's tempura chicken with broccoli and rice. Neither sounded particularly good to her.
Then I remembered something. Well, two things actually: there are no Lakers games this fall, and a new episode of Glee was going to be on. So I had no desire to be at home; I gladly offered to go out and pick up dinner. I drove up to Del Taco and placed our order.
