Chicken-Fried Taco Coming to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop

    Industry News | January 26, 2017

    Fuzzy’s Taco Shop presents the Chicken-Fried Taco, a rich and tasty take on the classic Southern comfort food dish, available starting January 30. The new taco is every bit as crave-inducing as the restaurant’s signature tacos, and is available for only $2.99 at all Fuzzy’s Taco Shop locations.

    The Chicken Fried Taco is prepared with the guest’s choice of hand-battered and fried fajita-style beef or chicken, Latin-fried potatoes, a creamy Verde sauce, and shredded cheese, all served on a flour tortilla. Available until March 12, this taco is the perfect combination of savory and rich, and pairs perfectly with an ice-cold beer.

    “In creating our newest seasonal menu offering, we wanted to provide guests with a dish that would be hearty, flavorful and comforting, for these last cold winter months,” says Mel Knight, president of Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. “We’re excited for folks to try the new Chicken-Fried Taco, and can’t wait to see who turns out to be a chicken-fried steak or a chicken-fried chicken fan.”

    Diners can also enjoy Fuzzy’s Taco Shop’s signature Baja Tacos, served on the guests’ choice of a soft or crispy shell, and prepared with the diner’s choice of protein including chicken, brisket, ground beef, pork, veggies, grilled or tempura fish, grilled or tempura shrimp, fajita chicken, or fajita beef, and topped with garlic sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese, cilantro and feta. Guests can also choose from jumbo burritos, salads, nachos, quesadillas and sandwiches. For a more traditional Mexican dinner, look to one of the enchilada, fajita or combo plates, also customizable with choice of protein.

    Additionally, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop’s 100-plus locations serve breakfast all day long, offering a robust selection that includes breakfast tacos and jumbo burritos (guests can choose from eggs, bacon, cheese, potatoes, chorizo and shrimp) as well as the brand’s “breakfast favorites”, including huevos rancheros, migas, chilaquiles, and the breakfast taco plate (all served with Latin-fried potatoes and refried beans), or the signature Big Fuzz Breakfast Sandwich, which is a meal in itself!

    Entrees are complemented by starters, including chips paired with queso, fire-roasted salsa, or guacamole, and essential sides such as black beans with pico de gallo, mix-mex fried rice, cilantro-lime rice, Latin-fried potatoes, Borracho beans, and refried beans. Delicious desserts are the perfect way to complete any meal at Fuzzy’s, and beverage service showcases soft drinks, tea, beer, and signature margaritas.

    A kid’s menu featuring entrees children will love is also available, including a taco plate, nachos, cheeseburger quesadilla and chicken sticks, with carrots and ranch dressing offered as a side.
