Del Taco has announced that starting November 6th and for a limited time only, slow-braised, shredded pork carnitas will be making a return to the menu. Slow cooked until tender in small batch kettles, this guest favorite will be a great complement to Del Taco’s offerings. Starting on November 6th, Del Taco Facebook fans can also receive a coupon for a free medium drink with any Epic Burrito purchase by Del Taco’s Facebook page.
