I try to limit my intake of fast food, but if we're being honest...once in awhile it's just something I need to do on a busy day.
When we're an hour past lunchtime, because we stayed too long at the library, and my girls need to eat before we rush home for naptime.
Del Taco, here we come.
Del Taco, has been one of my family's preferred drive-thru locations, since I was a kid growing up in Southern CA.
I've always been a fan of the classic grilled chicken soft taco at Del Taco, but it never crossed my mind as being somewhere I'd go for breakfast.
When I saw, that Del Taco had FREE Hashbrowns if you order 2 NEW Chorizo Breakfast Taco's, I figured I'd finally make a trip specifically for breakfast.
A few weeks ago, I was supposed to work at my daughter's preschool earlier than normal, so figured we'd have a special mommy/daughter breakfast date at Del Taco.
Okay, I have to say it. I really thought my little gal would order a breakfast taco, but at 8:00am, she insisted on a bean and cheese burrito,.....WHAT?
I think I went a little overboard and tried, well, like almost everything on the breakfast menu, myself!
See. I told you.
I think maybe I ordered too many items, because my Mexican Chorizo tacos weren't super hot, and I think the flavor lost some of it's punch because of it.
They were good, but not amazing. I would have liked some deeper spice and seasoning - they were a little to similar to regular sausage for me.
We did however LOVE the savory bacon flavor of the Mini Bacon Quesadilla for only $.79!
Also, I was pleasantly surprised at the 100% Arabica Bean Coffee I ordered.
It was hot, super fresh, and gave me the pep I needed to work at my daughter's preschool for the next few hours.
.....and $1.49 for coffee is my kind of deal!
The employees at the Davis, CA location where we visited were nothing short of incredibly sweet and pleasant and helpful, and nice, and .....okay you get the idea.
The guy behind the counter, suggested lots of breakfast options, and was very patient with me when I was trying to figure out what my daughter wanted to order.
Okay, so maybe I didn't order EVERYTHING on the menu, because there really is lots to choose from.
Next time, I want to try the Carne Asada Steak Breakfast Taco, that sounds good.
It's worth checking out, if you're in the mood for something NEW and interesting for your breakfast on the go routine!
And the prices are super affordable - which is probably why I'll keep going back and trying new breakfast menu items.
Of course an added perk, was being able to enjoy one-on-one time with my preschooler, without the
Who knew that Del Taco would be our new, quiet, breakfast hideout?
It's our new favorite breakfast place, shhhhhhhh, don't tell anyone our secret!
