Personally, I dont think your missing much.

I like a lot of fast food. Del Taco is somewhere ive only been to twice, its not something I miss.

I would take taco bell over del taco.

IDK where they are mainly based. They have them in Utah, thats all I know.

mcdonalds dollar menu is the best bang for the buck in terms of how much food you can get. sure taco bell has cheaper things than $1 but its not as much food as mcdonald's $1 double cheeseburger or mcchicken

Once you start to buy sodas and the other goodies I feel they all come out about the same.

I agree :p. I didn't eat there often. I eat way too much fast food as it is.

McDonald's dollar menu and water. It's a little healthier and much cheaper than dollar menu plus soda.

The new-ish cheesy double beef burrito at Taco Bell gives it a run for the money.

All you people saying taco bell aren't taking into account that you have to buy new underwear after eating there

I lol'd at that one. I've got an iron stomach so I've never gotten sick from Taco Bell but I imagine it's mainly because I eat there so rarely...

Del Taco doesnt have as much good stuff as Taco Bell, but there are a couple of things they have which I like more.
Their Quesadillas are far superior.
As are their Burritos. You can choose large or small, red or green.

But overall I am fine with Taco Bell, provided I can get back to my toilet in time.
Also, they are the only chain who's got Moutain Dew Baja Blast. I love that shit. Dont give a damn what the rest of you think but I love it.
I also like their cheese roll ups, but they arent as good as their cheeseritos. Those things were awesome, havent seen them in years.

My dad said they used to have a Bell Burger way back in the day. Thats the only thing he liked.

Quality? We're talking about fast food.

Also, wasn't it Wendy's that had the "where's the beef?" commercials about 2 decades ago? My wife picked up a burger from there yesterday for me. It was about the size of a silver dollar, and maybe 2 silver dollars thick. I couldn't taste it over the taste of the bun.

Taco Time is cheaper than Taco Bell, but their food is craptasticly worse than Taco Bell if you can imagine that.

You get what you pay for. Which in your case was likely a jr. hamburger for 0.99.

Get a Classic double and see if you can taste the beef.
