LAKE FOREST, Calif., Nov. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Del Taco, the nation's second largest Mexican quick service restaurant*, announced the opening of its newest location in Florida at 5610 W. Manatee Avenue, in Bradenton, Florida. Located in Manatee County, the opening marks the fifth location in the Sunshine State and the first outside of the Orlando area, where there are currently four Del Taco locations.
