We received a tip about how good Del Taco was for burgers, all the while believing that the specialty was Mexican. Well, we were right. The burgers aren’t bad. Certainly the price ($2.99) is right, but the slabs of meat are so thin that you almost feel like you didn’t eat. The burger looks similar to In ”˜n Out, but not as tasty. The fries are superior to that popular hangout. However, it’s tough to really appreciate burgers produced in a fast-food environment that specializes in other items. We still like Sonic burgers and Fatburger’s steak fries as the ultimate drive-in order. Oh, for a White Castle in Las Vegas!
