There is one that parks on the corner of Pacific and Grant in Montrose near the Gay clubs. It is hella good. Don't think many patrons care about washed hands after 10 drinks
I would ask what are you doing down there by the gay clubs. But never mind, I don' want to know.

Are their offerings any better than Taco Bell's?
These were all around Houston, some jokingly called them Hell Taco, not too different from Taco Hell (Bell). I recall one on Bellair and Dairy-Ashford where the Popeyes is now. Also, on Memorial and Dairy-Ashford where the Schlotzsky's is now.

buying Tacos of course.

Saw a guy there one night. He and his family were visiting from New York. He said "Man Houstonians are really friendly!!" He said "Me and the wife and kids had stopped by earlier and bought some Tacos, and I liked them so much, I am back to buy some more and so far 4 guys have kissed me" LMAO

He said he was here on a business trip, wonder why he decided to stay in Montrose

I guess you're right. Sounds extremely appetizing.
Good way to build up your immune system. American's get colds and food illness so easy cause we are OCD with germs.

Eat from those trucks and build up a tough immune system!

i was out in LA on the west coast the past few years and del taco was def the worst fast food chain out of them all. food is garbage and cant believe people eat it plus coming here. taco bell is better, not that it says much, but i hope del taco dont start poppin up everywhere.

thank you David Dollar for spreading some logic around. No city needs a chain like taco bell or del taco. del taco is grotesquely disgusting. i live in san francisco and there is one just a block from where i work. i tried it once when on my break.... that's the last time i'll ever go.

but you're on the right mindset. out of all the things i miss about texas are the delicious taco trucks around houston which imo are the best in the country.

You are so right - especially the ones that service the construction sites.

I used to eat lunch at Del Taco every day in high school (it was one of the few places we could get food with my alloted two-dollar lunch money). The bean burrito was really good, and they had a salsa bar that was awesome. The tortillas were delicious too. I don't recall them having burgers or fries at all, but probably because it wouldn't fit into my two-dollar budget.

I was very sad when they closed down in the late '80s. Thank God Two Pesos came along about that time, but they were sadly shut down by a lawsuit filed by Taco Cabana a few years later.
