At lunch time on Saturday, Elizabeth announced that she wanted shrimp tacos. No problem, I said. I left her on the couch watching The Walking Dead (I didn't care if I missed it - at this point in the series, every episode contains 30 seconds of action enveloped by 40 minutes of plaintive whining) and headed up to Del Taco.
So it's another good year for Del Taco's shrimp tacos. If they had these on their menu year-round, they would be legendary. But there are many things I've never understood about Del Taco, particularly why it isn't more popular: there are only around five hundred locations. I know that seems like a lot, but Taco Bell has sixty-five hundred, and Del Taco's tacos are better. Then again, McDonald's has 33,000 locations, and everything about Del Taco's burgers are much better. And we won't even get into how great their crinkle-cut fries are when done right.
I guess I just have to appreciate these tacos when they come back into my life every February.
