While it may feel like the Jersey shore has at least one of every chain restaurant that ever existed, there's at least one popular national chain that is planning to make their first foray into the Garden State next year.

According to reports, California based Del Taco is planning to make the move into New Jersey by next summer.

At the moment, they have agreements that cover a number of counties, including neighboring Monmouth and Burlington Counties, but no specific word on whether we'll be able to enjoy the new fast-Mexican option in Ocean County.

The first location is expected to open by next summer.

I've never been to a Del Taco, so I'll definitely give it a shot, but I still stick by what I've said in these pages a number of times - bring a Moe's Southwest Grill to Ocean County!
