The new Del Taco, located at 1703 S. State Loop 288, Denton, will be the first site of the Southern California-based chain's planned expansion into the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. A second location is planned for McKinney, northeast of Dallas, and more than 80 restaurants are planned for the region.

Construction of the Denton site began in August and the restaurant will have some new touches for the chain, including new design, updated colors, interior changes and a new seating package. At the time of the groundbreaking, Murphy said, "We believe the Del Taco brand is a great fit for the Dallas/Ft. Worth market. We're excited to bring our great tasting food and strong value options to Texas."
