The very popular West Coast taco chain Del Taco is making it’s way to Florida by opening at least seven Tampa Bay area Del Tacos. If you’ve never had Del Taco before here’s what they specializes in… Del Taco offers Mexican cuisine with some American foods like burgers, shakes, and fries. So get excited for a new fast food chain to wake up your taste buds.

There are already two Del Taco locations in Orlando, and one in Melbourne. I always try to hit one up every time I go to Disney or Universal. According to the Tampa Bay Times, the popular Mexican food chain is expected to open it’s first Tampa location in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. No specific sites have been approved. In fact, Del Taco Senior Vice President of Development Jeff Little said the franchisee is looking all over the area.
