“The food is good, the price is right, but this place is a mess”
Review of Del Taco

Del Taco
Ranked #13 of 15 Quick Bites in Oceanside
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 August 2018

We visited on a Sunday night and it served it's purpose. However, tables were not wiped down, the beach crowd had wrecked the bathrooms and the restaurant set-up does not allow enough room to stand in line, order your food and wait on it.
The area was a little sketchy and one of the locals was screaming at passing cars in the parking lot. Then, he came in a caused a scene, debating with another customer over whether the water was actually water. The staff could not handle what was an average amount of business.
However, the menu and the quality of food certainly surpassed Taco Bell.
We survived.

We had two of the street tacos plates.
They let us exchange the carne asada or chicken for carnitas.
The tortillas were cold, the carnitas were slimy from a green sauce. You couldn't taste the pork because the sauce, onion bits and chopped cilantro overpowered it. The avocado slice on each was not ripe.
The refried beans tasted like they were right out of a can and the rice had no flavor whatsoever. This is not good tasting Mexican food. I threw 50% of it away.

Seriously good tacos. I love the fish taco and I think they put something in it to make you crave it more.
Blows away all the other fast food taco chains
