Review: Del Taco - Bun Taco

Del Taco's Bun Taco features seasoned ground beef, hand-grated cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, and a slice of tomato on a sesame seed bun (i.e. it's what you'd find in their tacos but between two sides of a hamburger bun). They used to serve it back in the day and have brought it back for a limited time as part of their 50th anniversary celebration.

I picked one up for $2.25.

Between the beef, cheese, and lettuce, the Bun Taco got pretty messy with everything except the lone tomato slice seeking to escape the bun. The best way to go might be to use the wrapper as a cradle to keep everything nice and tight while you slowly pull it back with each bite.

Other than that, it's the same taco flavor minus the crunch. The beef offers a lighter flavor and less pronounced seasoning than Taco Bell or what you'd typically make at home. The lettuce and cheese were pretty fresh.

The bun is very squishy and soft; perhaps overly so.

Overall, Del Taco's Bun Taco basically feels like a Sloppy Joe but with a taco flair. It's nice, but I prefer the crunch of the taco shell. If you end up wanting to try it after the promotion is over, you can just ask them to make you one as a custom order.
