Crispy Shrimp Back at Del Taco for a Limited Time

(LAKE FOREST, CA) March 5, 2012 – Seafood favorites have once again returned to Del Taco's menu with the limited time addition of Shrimp Tacos and Burritos. Also returning are the Baja Shrimp Taco and Burrito, which made their debut last year featuring a tangy Baja sauce that adds another flavor option to the shrimp taco and burrito line up.

"Every year about this time, our fans begin clamoring for the return of these hugely popular menu items and we happily oblige their cravings," said John Cappasola, Chief Brand Officer at Del Taco. "And last year's introduction of the Baja flavor option was such a success we couldn't resist the opportunity to bring it back, too."

The Baja Shrimp Taco features crispy golden shrimp, crunchy cabbage, fresh salsa and a tangy Baja sauce wrapped in a warm flour tortilla served with a fresh lime wedge. The new Baja Shrimp Burrito features crispy golden shrimp, crunchy cabbage, seasoned rice, fresh pico de gallo salsa and tangy Baja sauce wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.

Del Taco is also offering two Crispy Fish Tacos for $3 available every day of the week. With a breaded fish fillet, crunchy cabbage, hand-made salsa and secret sauce, Del Taco's Fish Taco remains one of the most popular tacos served at the Mexican chain.
