It was announced on September 13 that Del Taco, a chain restaurant based out of California, will be making its way East, opening several locations in Virginia.

Del Taco plans to open ten restaurants in Virginia, including locations on the Peninsula in Newport News and Hampton and on the Southside in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach.

Del Taco is a fast-food chain restaurant specializing in Mexican cuisine and also serves salads, crispy chicken, burgers, fries, and shakes. Its headquarters is in Lake Forest, CA. Del Taco is the second largest Mexican restaurant chain in the U.S.

Del Taco signed a deal with Virginia Taco to open locations in Virginia. It was not disclosed exactly when or where the new restaurants will open in Hampton Roads.

Tara Woodall, a spokesperson with Del Taco, said with the deal being so fresh, “We do not have information on specific locations or timeframes.”

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
