SANTA PAULA, Calif. (AP) — What was supposed to be a cheap bite at Del Taco turned out to be small fortune for some Southern California customers.

About 150 people who ate this week at the Mexican-style fast food chain in Santa Paula, northwest of Los Angeles, were mistakenly charged thousands of dollars for burritos, tacos and soft drinks.

Del Taco spokesman Brian Devenny tells the Ventura County Star the glitch affected ATM and credit-card transactions at one restaurant. Devenny says all charges will be refunded.

Customer Michael Cole says he was surprised when he was charged $4,050 for one CrunchTada Pizza and two beef tacos. He noticed the problem Friday when he tried to withdraw $20 from an ATM and was denied.

What's not to like? A superb deal for a cruchtada pizza and two tacos. Inflation, deal with it and like it.
