The first of 25–count 'em– 25 Del Taco's will open Wednesday, September 4 at 11 a.m. The chain, which opened in Yermo, Calif. in 1964, was bought by Sagittarius Brands in 2006. It's known for combining crispy tacos, burritos, burgers, fries and shakes.

“Since we opened in Dallas several years ago, Texans have been loving Del Taco’s combination of fresh, made to order food and great value. We are excited to bring this winning combination to consumers in San Antonio,” said Paul Murphy, CEO of Del Taco in a press release. “We look forward to opening more locations and serving the people of San Antonio for a long time to come.”

The first location at 10926 Culebra Road will feature a 70-seat dining room, salsa bar, wi-fi and 24-hour drive-thru.
