Um, I think I'll pass on Barstow... If I were ever going up to the HD to visit, I'd personally rather go to either Daggett, Yermo, Lenwood, Hinkley, or even Newberry Springs, to look around. To me, those smaller towns in the middle of the desert interest me a bit more than Barstow. However, I still plan to visit the Del Taco up in Barstow one day. I wonder what's so extraordinary about this specific eatery. Also, was the first-ever Del Taco founded in Barstow or Yermo? Having said all that, I still wouldn't want to risk my life getting attacked/provoked by any crack-heads/meth-heads/tweakers in any of those towns previously mentioned. By the way, how's the meth up in those towns?

Pro tip: Del Taco/Taco Bell = white people's Mexican food

Can't argue with that.

Well, if you go, it HAS to be the original one, on First St., off Main St., near the train yard & the "river bottom". The food is better, fresher & larger portions...the burritos, especially the green chile ones, are legend. BTW, my Mexican friends & Mexican boyfriend also loved the ORIGINAL Del Taco that I'm referencing. Taco Bell is poo. My Pro tip: Keep your windows up while at the drive-thru waiting for your food.

Regarding meth...that has never been a part of my life, but it has certainly ruined/ended the lives of many of my childhood friends, especially those who stayed in the HD.

So, there are no tweakers/cookers in the Low Desert??

Yes, of course there are definitely tweakers/cookers in the Low Desert, like anywhere else! I believe they're more abundant in the outlying rural towns of the LD, such as Thousand Palms, Thermal, Sky Valley, North Palm Springs, Mecca, Ripley, and so on and so forth. DHS has a bad reputation for bearing a sizeable tweaker/meth-head population, and known by CV locals as "The Meth Capital of the California Desert." So, uh... there's that, I guess.

I've this friend who eats at TB frequently enough. He won't go near Del Taco. I once tried to explain how Del Taco's food is better and told him exactly what to order, but he'd have none of it. He then donned his doof goggles and said he likes TB because it's "Mexican inspired." Meaning what? Imitation? Pig snouts don't fall out of the food at Del Taco.

I think his rationalization was he felt TB's food was "safer." That's what I took away from it. But this dude has some oddly distorted perceptions as it is. It gets entertaining at times.

Annually, it receives over 10 inches of rainfall. You want to see real desert? Come to Palm Springs, Indio, Blythe, Victorville, Yucca Valley, Lancaster, Palmdale, Borrego Springs, El Centro, Calexico... basically, anywhere that's a REAL desert!

Oh, look! Another thread revival!
Lancaster and Palmdale are technically classified as a "steppe" climate, as distinguished from a true desert in a place such as Needles or Blythe.

The reason for the distinction is because the marine layer actually reaches the Palmdale area at many points throughout the year, and Palmdale's hillsides are covered in juniper, cottonwood and oak trees in many places.

Really? I never knew about that!

Juniper, cottonwoods, and oak trees in the Antelope Valley, huh? Now that's something!
