So you made a New Year’s resolution to lose a little weight, but not at the expense of your fast food habit, right?
Well, Del Taco might have just the thing: Turkey!
The chain recently introduced ground turkey as an option for its tacos and CrunchTada.
A while back, it was The Stockhouse, then earlier this year it turned into Gul’s Fusion Restaurant.
This fall, it became the Taco Shack.
Another longtime restaurant has closed.
Lupe’s Azteca Mexican Food in Redlands/Loma Linda has shut down.
The restaurant had been in operation since 1952.
A recent visit found a giant notice posted on the front door indicating that the restaurant was permanently closed.
Pappasito’s Mexican Grill & Seafood has opened in a former Burger King in north San Bernardino.
The restaurant serves up a variety of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, tortas, soups, seafood and combination plates.
We appreciate that breakfast is served all day.
In case you missed it, downtown Upland has lost one restaurant, is losing another, but is gaining a third.
Already closed is Aria Restaurant and Lounge, which was owned by the same folks who own Antonino’s Italian Restaurant, Haandi Indian Cuisine, Sixty 6 Sports Bar and Lounge and the Magic Lamp Inn in Rancho Cucamonga.
Facebook fan Diana reports that Charlie’s Red, White and Blue American Deli and Bar is moving into the space at 296 N. Second Ave.
From our sister paper, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, we learned that King Taco is celebrating its 39th anniversary today (September 16).
In celebration, the chain is offering all tacos at 1974 prices: 50¢!
The deal is good until 8 p.m.
The chain’s sole Inland Empire location is at 406 N. Mountain Ave., Ontario.
Earlier this year, Del Taco rolled out items on its Buck & Under and New Tastes menus and promoted them by giving them away.
Well, the chain is doing it again!
For the next three Wednesdays (August 28 and September 4 and 11), the chain is giving away items from its Buck & Under menu with any purchase.
Taco Bell has released the third flavor of its insanely popular Doritos Tacos Locos line into the wild a bit early.
The Fiery Doritos Locos Taco won’t officially be on menu boards until Thursday (August 22), but yesterday the chain posted to its social media accounts that it was already available.
I tried the new taco today for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised. The shell isn’t overly spicy (much less so than Flamas Doritos), and the taco gets a good hit of flavor from the lime seasoning on the shell.
In comparison, I thought the Nacho Cheese flavor was overly salty, and the Cool Ranch flavor just left me underwhelmed.
Head over the jump for a video preview.
We recently reported that Qdoba Mexican Grill would be closing about 20% of its corporate-run stores by the end of September.
We didn’t know that it would happen this soon.
And we didn’t know that Southern California would be a target.
Jack in the Box-owned Qdoba Mexican Grill will close 67 of its 340 company-operated locations by the end of September, the company announced this week.
The closures don’t affect any of the company’s 307 franchise locations.
However, the company plans to offset the closures with 70 to 75 new locations, including about 40 which will be company-operated.
A list of locations has not been released.
