For ambitious home-bound burrito-lovers looking to turn mealtime into an exciting feat, Taco Del Mar has launched the 5 Pounder Burrito Challenge at participating locations.  Available via phone order for pick-up, the behemoth burrito consists of 4 tortillas, 2 lbs rice, 1 lb beans, 1 lb meat, ¼ lb of cheese and ¾ lb of salsa.

Those up for the challenge will have the chance to earn a spot on the Taco Del Mar 5 Pounder Wall of Fame if they finish the massive burrito in 30 minutes or less. Participants will be charged the amount of the burrito at the time of the order and are then encouraged to commence the challenge at home where they can record a video or stream live on social media to document the feat. When a participant completes the challenge and submits their video (or photo), they will then be added to the 5 Pounder Burrito Challenge wall-of-fame.

Taco Del Mar is also offering new Meal Kits To-Go for small groups of friends or families interested in building their favorite Coastal Mexican cuisine at home. Three different Meal Kit To-Go options are available – including build-your-own Nachos, Tacos, or Burritos – and each kit contains rice and beans, meat, tortillas or chips, a variety of salsas, guacamole, queso dip and sour cream. The kits come in two sizes – to serve 4 or 8 people – and start at about $39.99 and $74.99, respectively. Prices vary by location.

 “With these two new offerings, we’re looking to spice up the dine-at-home experience just in time for Cinco de Mayo, a holiday that typically sees guests dining out,” says Brent Phillip, Brand Manager, Taco Del Mar. “We’re especially excited to see our fans’ enthusiasm for completing the challenge as a fun way to spice up their day and gain well-earned bragging rights.”

Taco Del Mar restaurants are currently open for takeout and delivery service online and via Door Dash, UberEats, Postmates, Skip the Dishes, and other providers. In addition, participating Taco Del Mar locations are offering free delivery and online specials.
