Apparently this Taco Bell breakfast business hasn't gotten lost on the other OC-based fast food taco chain. As a response, the Lake Forest-headquartered company has put out a press release that notes that it has been "serving breakfast for more than 30 years".
Although it didn't follow that proclamation with "so there", it might as well have–the firm is adding breakfast tacos to its line up of breakfast burritos. It introduced the new items yesterday.
And to sweeten the deal, it's adding an order of hash browns sticks for free until April 27 if you buy two breakfast tacos.
Here's a snippet from their release.
Del Taco, serving breakfast for more than 30 years, introduces new breakfast tacos, each made with fresh-grilled eggs and hand-grated cheddar cheese. Beginning April 3, and starting at just 75 cents, the breakfast tacos lineup includes:
Breakfast Taco: fresh-grilled eggs and hand-grated cheddar cheese in a warm flour tortilla – 75 cents each
Bacon Breakfast Taco: fresh-grilled eggs, hand-grated cheddar cheese and bacon in a warm flour tortilla – $1.00 each
Sausage Breakfast Taco: fresh-grilled eggs, hand-grated cheddar cheese and sausage in a warm flour tortilla – $1.00 each
Steak Breakfast Taco: fresh-grilled eggs, hand-grated cheddar cheese and carne asada steak in a warm flour tortilla – $1.75 each
Guests can customize their spice level with their choice of Del Taco's Taco Sauces.
As an introductory offer, from April 3 – 27, guests will receive a free order of five-piece hashbrown sticks with purchase of two breakfast tacos, available from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. at participating locations.
