    Fans everywhere have the chance to try Carnitas for free.

    Del Taco announced the return of its tender braised, shredded pork Carnitas, back for a limited time due to popular demand. Now available at the company’s more than 580 restaurants nationwide, Del Taco’s tender braised, shredded pork Carnitas are cooked in small batch kettles for an authentic flavor.

    To celebrate the return of its fan-favorite Carnitas, Del Taco invites guests to “top” their favorite Taco Bell menu items with a serving of Del Taco’s shredded pork Carnitas. On Wednesday, September 18th from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m., three Del Taco locations in Los Angeles (8651 So. La Tijera Ave.), Oklahoma City (1508 W-I-240 Service Road), and Atlanta (109 Banks Station Lane, Fayetteville) will serve Carnitas to any guest who wants to make their favorite Taco Bell item better. Guests simply show their Taco Bell purchase for a free serving of Del Taco Carnitas to top their item.

    “Carnitas is a favorite amongst our fans, with guests asking for it year round, and is something that is not offered by our biggest competitor,” says Barry Westrum, Del Taco’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We know the craveable flavor and quality of our shredded pork Carnitas can elevate any menu item, and we’re willing to prove it.”

    Fans everywhere have the chance to try Carnitas for free. Del Taco will offer a free Carnitas Combo Burrito or Carnitas Loaded Fries (with any purchase) through The Del Taco App, with promo code TOPTHEBELL.
