    Taco Cabana is also offering contests for the summer.

    From new Carnitas Street Tacos to the launch of its first ever “Sip Into Summer Sweepstakes, Taco Cabana is turning up the heat for July. The fast-casual restaurant chain is launching several new menu items and special offers, which will be available for a limited-time only at participating locations across Texas. 

    This summer, TC is excited to help guests experience the unique flavors of Mexico with its new Carnitas Street Tacos:

    • Yucatán $5.79 (3-pack): Carnitas with achiote sauce, pico de gallo, pickled red onions and cotija cheese
    • Mexico City $5.79 (3-pack): Carnitas al pastor with pineapple, cilantro onion mixture and Guacamolito Salsa
    • Guests can also try carnitas on a bowl or quesadilla

    “This year, it’s been really exciting to push the balance between our rich heritage and our drive to innovate,” says Chuck Locke, president of Taco Cabana. “Our VP of Culinary Design, Chef Pepe Lopez, has done a great job navigating TC’s traditional Mexican culture with new flavors our menu has never seen before—and it all tastes so fresh and amazing! It’s been exactly the kind of experience we want to provide to our guests.”

    Other new menu items launching July 1 include:

    Taco Cabana’s new Tex-Mex Sampler includes small totchos, corn fritters and three jalapeño poppers for $9.99.

    What happens when you combine tater tots with nachos? Taco Cabana’s new Totchos feature a tasty bowl of crispy potato bites topped with queso, chopped bacon, roasted jalapeños, sour cream and Salsa Ranch for $5.69 (medium-size).

    Pancakes are back at TC. Enjoy a stack of three pancakes for $2.99.

    TC fans ages 21 and older can enjoy the new Frozen Jack & Dr. Pepper for $4 all-day, every day. Guests can also add a hitchhiker shot of Jack Daniels for $2 each, making it the perfect adult refreshment for warm patio weather.

    In the spirit of summer, TC will be offering a Tots & Shots promotion for 10 days (valid July 12 through July 21), which features a medium order of Totchos and your choice of two hitchhiker shots bundled together for $9. Hitchhiker shot options include Fireball Whisky, Sauza Gold Tequila and Jack Daniels.

    Taco Cabana is also partnering with Dr. Pepper to give fans a chance to win big with its “Sip Into Summer Sweepstakes.” From July 1 to July 28, TC guests can purchase a 20 oz. cup that will have two peel-and-win stickers on it. Each sticker gives an opportunity to win a variety of instant-win TC food prizes (1 in 4 wins). If you happen to peel a sticker with no prize, it will still include a code that you can enter on www.tcsipintosummer.com for a second chance to win non-food prizes, including one of five trips to Mexico, 100+ electronic prizes and TC gift cards.

    “We’re always trying to think of new ways to engage our guests and the ‘Sip Into Summer Sweepstakes’ seemed like a really fun way to mix it up,” says Locke. “I try to think of what would make me want to dine-in at certain places, and for me, it’s all about getting to have a variety of experiences. Between our menu launches, patio entertainment and fun new initiatives like ‘Sip Into Summer,’ I really think we provide a little something for everyone to enjoy.”
