Is it ever too late to reply? I hope not.
I liked Aurthur T's folks bought it all the time. Probably why I'm the way I I. Clarks was really good too. The are far famlily. The kids ran in into the nevermore. I don't know the other two. Though many consider me a troll on this board. As of late I'm think about retirement under a bridge. Join the community so to speak.
Oh the Folks quit buying AT's Something about worms in the "fish". They were gone soon after that, long long ago. I did like it!
Here's one though Sambo's. I hear there is one left in CA.

You CA folks, do you remember Long John Silvers? There is one in MOA and one in Maple Grove. I would love to see El Pollo Loco come here, I think they could make a killing. I just checked the Del Taco website and there is nothing about them comming. I think they are looking for someone who is willing to put up their own money.

I'll most likely continue to drive up to Columbia Heights and La Casita if I want good mexican. Either that or there's a place on Concord just outside downtown St Paul that's pretty good too... Boca Chica? I think that's the name of it. Either way, Del Taco sounds like another Zantigo, Taco Bell or Taco John's which we really don't need.
You are correct on both counts. LaCasita, there is one in Roseville too, is excellent...( try their cheese enchilads) and Boca Chica, well, they are second to none as well. Sounds like another Taco Bell to me and yes, we already have plenty of those don't we?....you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a Taco Bell..., er, so that's what they claim is steak..hey, it makes sense now....

Just start supporting your local owned restaurants. Get back to the basics of eating again.

I would prefer the local restaurants and stores but again with the economy it is gettign harder and harder to do that.

There are a lot of resaurants that were so good at the place but the rent and more cost a lot

As a former Minnesotan and Twin Cities resident that has lived in Phoenix for the last 8 years I have to ask. Do you really want a del Taco in Minnesota? If you want good Mexican food go to a good Mexican restaurant. I guess if Taco Bell, Taco Johns or even McDonalds is your idea of good eats then you'll probably happy. In my opinion - YUCK!!
We don't care what any crazy wack job from AZ thinks!!

Let's hope. If not, they will ask for bail out money and take their employees pensions away. Isn't that the norm these days?
