Del Taco Introduces New Epic Surf & Turf Burrito

Del Taco is making waves with its new Epic Surf & Turf Burrito, available beginning March 6 for a limited time. Del Taco’s Epic Surf & Turf Burrito is loaded with shrimp, grilled carne asada steak, lime rice, and cabbage, and is topped with ancho sauce, pico de gallo salsa, and Del Taco’s secret sauce.

Wrapped in a silver foil wrapper, Del Taco’s Epic Surf & Turf Burrito is the newest creation in the company’s popular Epic Burrito lineup, which launched in November. Ranging from 13 to 18.5 ounces in weight, Epic Burritos were created to expand the choices for guests seeking unique flavors packed with quality ingredients.

“Demand for these burritos has been truly epic,” says John Cappasola, chief brand officer for Del Taco. “With the addition of the Epic Surf & Turf Burrito, we’re able to offer our guests another premium option loaded with fresh ingredients and bold flavors, but with the convenience of a drive thru and a great price.”

Del Taco’s Epic Surf & Turf Burrito will be offered á la carte or as a meal with a medium drink. The burrito will be priced at $5.29, and the meal will be priced at $6.79. Other Del Taco Epic Burritos include Epic Fajita Burrito, Epic Steak & Potato Burrito, and Epic Chicken Chipotle Ranch Burrito.

Del Taco’s Crispy Shrimp Tacos will also be available, back by popular demand. For a limited time, guests can purchase two Crispy Shrimp Tacos for $4 and two guest-favorite Beer Battered Fish Tacos for $3.50.
