Del Taco carne asada burrito and tacos
Del Taco is introducing steak to its menu.

LAKE FOREST, Calif. – Del Taco Restaurants Inc. is bringing made-to-order Latin fare featuring carne asada.

The steak is flavored with a marinade of chilies, herbs and spices and grilled-to-order in the Del Taco’s kitchens. The new items include Carne Asada Street Tacos, Epic Carne Asada Burritos, Carne Asada Combo Burritos and Carne Asada Fries.

“With our carne asada freshly grilled in our kitchens, Del Taco guests can savor quality, flavorful steak served hot off the grill at the convenience of a drive-thru,” said John Cappasola, executive vice president and chief brand officer.

The carne asada items are part of Del Taco’s push to use fresh ingredients in its food items. The chain recently added fresh avocados; Fresca Bowls featuring chicken, avocados, beans, rice and other ingredients; and a new line of salads.
