LAKE FOREST, Calif., Aug. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Del Taco, the nation’s second-largest Mexican quick-service restaurant*, announced the introduction of its NEW Honey Chipotle BBQ Brisket: three items filled with 16-hour pit-smoked pulled beef brisket and smoky honey chipotle BBQ sauce. Starting August 24, Del Taco guests can order the Honey Chipotle BBQ Brisket Quesadilla, Epic Honey Chipotle BBQ Brisket & Bacon Burrito, and Honey Chipotle BBQ Brisket & Bacon Fries for a limited time at locations nationwide.

"Our Del Taco® Better Mex® brand promise includes providing our guests with elevating experiences,” said Tim Hackbardt, Del Taco’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Our low and slow pit-smoked brisket brings the smoke, and the honey chipotle BBQ sauce brings the sweet to menu items that deliver another dimension of flavor in fast food. Add some of our NEW Funnel Cake Fries to any of our Brisket items and you have backyard BBQ flavor party to go.”

Del Taco’s three NEW Honey Chipotle BBQ Brisket items include**:
