The Secret's Out: Del Taco Plans on Chicago Expansion

First Chicago location could open in July 2016.

Can't decide between a burger or taco? Well, there's no need to pick at Del Taco, and the California-based chain is looking to open at least eight locations in Chicago.

But you'll need to be patient until 2016, as the chain plans to open its first Del Taco in Chicago as early as July of that year. The closest Del Taco to Chicago is about 200 miles away in Toledo, Ohio, and there are also six in Michigan. The company runs 550 restaurants across 16 states.

A message to Del Taco for further details wasn't immediately returned. Check back with Eater later for any updates.
