We were not expecting authentic or delicious Mexican cuisine by any means, but this place was really gross and I definitely would not go back. Believe it or not, I can usually eat just about anything within reason but Del Taco should be ashamed for serving the slop they call food. I think I was sick for two days after... More

The male with black "emo" hair must be a new dude, completell and utterly rude I would recommend firing this individual, he doesn't appreciate the job he has obviously.

I was very excited to visit as I've not had a Del Taco since I was a kid when they left Houston. The physical establishment definitely need to redo. But the food came out promptly inexpensively and tasted good. Don't think anybody else could expect much more than that from a chain fast taco place, especially given the dining options... More

Wanted to eat at 29 Palms Inn, but it was closed, so frantically searched TripAdvisor for SOMEWHERE else to eat after visiting Joshua Tree National Park. The reviews were spot-on. Yes, it's a chain. Yes, it's American/Mexican. But the portions were huge, the prices were low, the food was fresh and tasty, and the staff was just so darn friendly... More

I pulled into the local Del Taco the drive through and ordered two tacos. An Carne Asado (made with steak)teak taco for two dollars and a Chipotle beef taco. The steak taco had guacamole, salsa cruda in a corn tortilla-it was good. Basic and good. Then I tried the beef taco-very good! Say what you will, however my bill was... More

When to this place after dark, the parking and the restaurant looked messy and not clean. Staff didn't seem overly friendly and not in a hurry to help us. The food was mediocre at best, but nothing stood out. If looking for Mexican food in Twentynine Palms I would look elsewhere.

Delicious, fresh, and inexpensive! You can't go wrong with any choice on the menu. if you like bland, go for the bean and cheeze. If you like flavorful, choose Baja collection or al carbon. Anything can be actually made spicy with a yummy hot sauce (or mild or medium...) For desert-don't miss the cheesecake bites! Grilled or fried... you can't... More

The staff late at night were swamped with customers, but kept up a smile and friendly attitude. The bean burritos were excellent
