Taco John’s is taking its reputation for bold and original flavors to a new level. For its next limited-time offer, the fast growing Mexican quick-serve chain is combining two traditional favorites into one. The result is the new Quesadilla Taco.

“Quesadilla Tacos are a great representation of the innovative ideas we’re working to develop,” says Jeff Linville, CEO for Taco John’s. “It will give guests the opportunity to try something really original. Our test markets were extremely receptive, and we think TJ fans around the country are going to love it.”

Quesadilla Taco available at Taco John's Mexican restaurants. The new tacos will be available at all Taco John’s locations starting July 25.

“Quesadilla Tacos are unlike anything we’ve done before,” says Bob Karisny, vice president for menu strategy and innovation at Taco John’s. “They feature two corn flour tortillas covered with Pepper Jack cheese, which are grilled, folded, and filled with chile lime chicken, tomatoes, lettuce, and a new smoky chipotle sauce. They provide a unique flavor and texture that you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else.”
