Del Tacos testing new ‘platos’ at select Inland Empire locations

Del Taco recently introduced its new platos at select locations in San Bernardino, Redlands, Colton, Loma Linda and Riverside.

The platos come with a choice of either a wet burrito, two fish tacos or two street tacos, plus cilantro lime rice, beans and chips and salsa.

Prices range from $6.49 to $7.49.

It appears to be a second go-round for Del Taco’s platos. They were also tested about a year ago in the Sacramento area.

If you’re interested in trying them for yourself, head to one of these locations:

  • Colton: 834 W. Valley Blvd.; 1010 E. Washington St.
  • Loma Linda: 24898 Redlands Blvd.
  • Redlands: 1624 W. Redlands Blvd.; 602 E. Redlands Blvd.
  • Riverside: 3487 Arlington Ave.; 4407 Brockton Ave; 6333 Riverside Ave.; 1255 University Ave.; 3199 Van Buren Blvd.
  • San Bernardino: 272 E. 40th St.; 2665 S. Waterman Ave.

St. Bernardine Medical Center hosting food trucks daily through June

San Bernardino-area food truck fans can rejoice…and dine at food trucks every day through the end of June.

We make no guarantees on the state of your waistline should you accept the challenge, however.

The trucks will park from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. near the 21st Street entrance of St. Bernardine Medical Center, 2101 N. Waterman Ave., San Bernardino.

Yes, that means you can have lunch and dinner from the trucks.

That would bring the total number of Inland Empire locations to four.
