Del Taco

Tustin, CA


Design of new Prototype
Architect of Record

This freestanding, drive-thru, quick service Mexican restaurant features the first full exterior redesign of its kind. With updated streamlined elements and new textures, the structure takes on a smoother, more modernized feel from its more traditional counterparts. The building’s standout new feature is a midcentury simplified horizontal stack finish. As Del Taco’s primary Architect of Record for three years, AO has designed over 30 stores in three years in the regions of California, Georgia, Oklahoma, Colorado, and Nevada.
