Just recently Del Taco Restaurants began serving new entrée meals called Platos, which is their new premium menu where they offer individually-plated meals complete with an entrée, two sides, and chips and salsa! Normally when I visit Del Taco is is for my late night craving of my high school favorite, the chicken soft taco and to be honest the only other item I usually get is the bean burrito, but with this new entrée option at Del Taco I definitely had a reason to go and visit. When Del Taco invited me in to try their Platos, I kindly obliged! 🙂
When I visited the Del Taco by home in Mission Viejo, I opted for the Carne Asada wet style burrito Plato and my hubby opted for the fish tacos. Platos provide a quick and affordable, but also deliciously filling meal available at any time of day.
I opted for the Carne Asada Wet Style Burrito because I wanted to try something different. It was a pretty thick burrito and while I would have liked a bit more meat than there was, it was seasoned quite nicely. There was also a nice portion of fresco lime rice and slow-cooked pinto beans with freshly grated cheddar cheese sprinkled on top, along with chips and salsa which definitely filled me up for lunch for the long day ahead at Disneyland. 🙂
My husband got the Beer Battered Fish Tacos Plato and I think that both my hubby and I agreed this plate was our favorite. I had never tried the fish tacos at Del Taco before, but I totally fell in love with them. I will definitely get the fish tacos again! 🙂
There are four Platos entrée options currently available, including the two new Wet Burritos and taco options:
- Chicken Verde Wet Burrito – packed with slow-cooked pinto beans made from scratch, marinated and grilled chicken, tangy green sauce and spicy jack cheese wrapped in a warm flour tortilla then topped with tangy green sauce, spicy jack cheese and hand-sliced fresh avocado ($6.49)
- Carne Asada Wet Burrito – stuffed with slow-cooked pinto beans made from scratch, marinated and grilled carne asada steak, zesty red sauce and freshly grated cheddar cheese wrapped in a warm flour tortilla then topped with zesty red sauce, freshly grated cheddar cheese and hand-sliced fresh avocado ($7.49)
- 2 Beer Battered Fish Tacos – wild-caught Alaska Pollock fillet in a crispy beer batter topped with crunchy cabbage, savory secret sauce and handmade pico de gallo wrapped in two warm corn tortillas and served with a fresh-cut lime wedge ($6.49)
- 2 Street Tacos – choice of freshly grilled marinated chicken ($6.49) or freshly grilled carne asada steak topped with roasted chile salsa, diced onions, fresh cilantro and hand-sliced avocado wrapped in two warm corn tortillas ($7.49)
All entrees are also available à la carte. Guests can add a small drink to any Plato for only $1 and substitute black beans for pinto beans at no additional charge.
“We are excited about Platos because it adds an additional layer of variety and convenience for our guests who are looking to get their ‘Mexican Night’ fix without having to spend too much time or money on a quality meal,” said John Cappasola, executive vice president and chief brand officer of Del Taco. “A fast and delicious dinner-worthy experience that’s meant to be savored with a fork and knife, Platos is a more elevated meal compared to what today’s consumers have come to expect from a drive-thru. Whether picking up a family dinner on the way home or dining in the restaurant with friends, Platos is yet another Del Taco menu option to fit any occasion, budget or appetite.”
