This just in from reader Paul:

“Hi John, I talked to a worker at Del Taco in Ventura. She told me that two Del Taco’s were coming to SB. I didn’t get any details but thought I would mention it. One of the first groups I joined on Facebook when I signed up back in 2009 was named ‘I’d give my soul for a Del Taco in Santa Barbara.’ Yep, it actually existed.”

    IHOP, Papa John’s, Rusty’s, and Del Taco (last 4 posts), not saying much for food in SB/Goleta…

    Accordion Fries…Mmmm. You know its akin to Taco Bell, when you want to stuff yourself with mostly poor food(except for the fries for me) for five bucks, whoop there it is for you. If the Habit had a drive thru…

    I LOVVVVVVE Del Taco! Bring it on!

    To each their own. I have no interest in Del Taco or Papa John’s but I don’t criticize those that do. I don’t eat at IHOP but I don’t tell others that they shouldn’t. Food snobs, cease and desist.

    • Christine says:

      “to each their own”, “I don’t criticize”, yet you tell a differing opinion to “cease and desist”? Hypocritcal, much?

      The blog here allows for comments. That means people will voice their opinion. I picked this gem up from edhat years ago, “if you don’t like the comments, don’t read them.” Cool?

    Lemme guess: one will be coming to Goleta, and they will build a new building for it, and petition for a drive-thru as well (despite the lock-down on drive-thrus here, oh wait, unless you’re McDonalds)…

    Pretty stoked on Del Taco. It’s actually somehow cheaper than Taco Bell and is less greasy and artificial tasting (not saying it actually is healthier, but whatever). And yes, they randomly have really great fries.

    yay Del Taco! I also belonged to that facebook group back in the day…

    Del Taco is going in at Hollister and Turnpike, next to Cody’s

    Marc, Where did you get the idea that Del Taco is coming to the Cody’s center??? I manage the center and would be interested to hear where this rumor started. Rick
