Del Taco Restaurants, Inc. announced the long-awaited return of its tender, shredded pork Carnitas, back for a limited time due to popular demand. Now available at the company’s more than 550 restaurants nationwide, Del Taco’s tender braised, shredded pork Carnitas are cooked in small batch kettles for an authentic flavor.

“Utilizing authentic spices and cooking techniques, our Carnitas have always been prepared in a traditional manner, delivering a flavor our fans love,” says Noah Chillingworth, Del Taco’s vice president of marketing. “Whether it’s in our Combo Burrito, new Wet Burrito or Street Taco Platos, or served on top of our craveable Loaded Fries, our tender braised Carnitas are a combination of uncompromising flavor and quality, while still served at a tremendous value; something that is uniquely Del Taco.”

Combined with Del Taco’s already fresh ingredients, such as hand-grated cheddar, handmade pico de gallo, hand-sliced avocado and slow-cooked beans made from scratch, the company is bringing back the following old favorites and introducing a few new menu offerings to appeal to every Carnitas fan:
