More Restaurants You Didn’t Know Existed Here

I meant to post about this back in November, but forgot about until I went through my photo backlog last night.  This is down in Federal Way, next to the recently opened Wal-Mart Supercenter:

 It’s a Del Taco restaurant, and as far as I can tell, it is currently the only one to be found anywhere in the Puget Sound area (the website shows one location in Vancouver and one in the Tri-Cities, but no other ones near here.)  Much of the menu here falls into roughly the same category as Taco Bell:  pseudo-Mexican type fast food for cheap, although they also have burgers on the menu for some odd reason.  I did try a couple of items while I was down there, but it wasn’t enough to really get a good feel for the place.  Looking at the franchising section of their website, it does appear that they are interested in moving further into the Seattle area, but seem to be focusing on the area to the south in Tacoma, Olympia and Centralia, as well as Bremerton.  I will note that the “Beyond hot” Del Scorcho sauce they provide is exceedingly wimpy, especially given the hyperbole used in the name, which has inspired the design of a monster truck

Also of note is the co-branded KFC/Long John Silver’s in the background.  Long John Silver’s is another brand that I have not seen in this area before, although with much better alternatives for that type of food to be found around here, I’m not sure why they bother.

  1. Where I am, in Fayette County GA, the Del Taco was one of I think only three fast food places in town in the late 1980s. It was Del Taco, Hardees and ??? I can’t remember.

    I thought they had gone completely out of business, I haven’t seen one in 15 years!
