At just $2.49 each, your wallet will be just as grateful as your taste buds.

    “We are thrilled to be the first brand in our category to debut this exciting Fried Chicken Taco concept,” says Taco John’s Chief Marketing Officer Barry Westrum. “It’s like when chocolate met peanut butter, when ham met cheese or when spaghetti met meatballs. Fried chicken in a tortilla is a total game changer! It’s bold and distinctively delicious, because the flavors burst through the tortilla, rather than getting lost in a bun. We all noticed our mouths were watering more and more with every bite. That’s when we knew we needed to introduce this product to America with its very own brand, Cluckin’ John’s!”

    For now, chicken lovers can order Fried Chicken Tacos a la carte, as a combo meal or in multi-packs at their favorite Taco John’s.

    With its fusion of distinctive flavors and south-of-the-border spices, the Taco John’s menu offers several signature items, including Meat & Potato Burritos, Stuffed Grilled Tacos, Potato Olé and now, the all-new Fried Chicken Taco. Taco John’s features signature specials like Taco Tuesday, discounted breakfast burritos on Wake Up Wednesday! and the everyday $1-$2-$3 ValuEst Menu.
