    Industry News | January 5, 2022

    Del Taco Restaurants, Inc., the nation’s second largest Mexican quick service restaurant, expands its value offerings with the new “20 Under $2” menu. It’s the largest value menu of any QSR+ brand, packed with craveable options including tacos, burritos, nachos, snacks, treats, drinks, and shakes.

    “While other brands are getting rid of their value menus, we are expanding ours to bring our guests a wider variety of items and flavors including our Crispy Chicken Tacos and Chicken Tacos Del Carbon packed with or without our fresh house-made guacamole,” says Tim Hackbardt, Del Taco’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We know our guests are concerned about rising gasoline prices and overall inflation, and that’s why we think this is the right menu at the right time. The Del Taco 20 Under $2 Menu has variety, freshness, flavor and quality at affordable prices you can’t find anywhere else.”

    All of Del’s menu items are prepared fresh in every restaurant’s working kitchen with high-quality ingredients such as freshly grilled chicken, fresh house-made guacamole, freshly grated cheddar cheese, slow-cooked beans made from scratch, and signature creamy Queso Blanco. The new value menu also introduces new value menu items including:
