A Beautiful Look At Everything On Del Taco’s Carne Asada Steak Menu


Look at this juicy chunk of meat—just look at it. It might just be one of the tastiest morsels you’ll ever have the privilege of consuming. 

The tender, itty-bitty piece of heaven you see above is a lil’ thang called CARNE ASADA STEAK, representative of Del Taco’s brand-steaking-new Carne Asada Steak collection. Featured in the collection are seven items—naturally, we had to get our paws on ALL of them, so we popped into the Del Taco down the street. Here’s what we got:

Carne Asada Street Taco


Freshly grilled carne asada steak, topped with Roasted Chile salsa, diced onions, fresh cilantro, and hand sliced avocado, wrapped in two warm tortillas. BONUS: much larger than your average street taco.

Carne Asada Combo Burrito


Freshly grilled carne asada steak, with slow-cooked beans made from scratch, hand-grated cheddar cheese, and zesty red sauce, wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. This thing is PACKED with protein, yo!

Epic Carne Asada Burrito


Loaded with freshly grilled carne asada steak, slow-cooked beans made from scratch, Fresca Lime rice, tangy guacamole, and handmade pico de gallo salsa, wrapped in a warm, oversized flour tortilla. When Del Taco says “epic,” they ain’t kiddin’.

Carne Asada Fries


Crinkle-cut fries topped with freshly grilled carne asada steak, hand-grated cheddar cheese, savory secret sauce, tangy guacamole, and diced fresh tomatoes. Take notes, y’all—THIS is how to properly dress your fries!

Carne Asada Breakfast Taco


Freshly grilled carne asada steak, hand-grated cheddar cheese, and hot scrambled eggs wrapped in a warm tortilla. The name is misleading—you should have this for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner.

Carne Asada Half Pounder


Loaded with freshly grilled carne asada steak, hand-grated cheddar cheese, and hot scrambled eggs wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.This baby is sure to get your morning started right!

Carne Asada Epic Scrambler


 Freshly grilled carne asada steak, diced fresh tomatoes, hand-grated cheddar cheese, and hot scrambled eggs wrapped in a warm tortilla. Again, when Del Taco goes for “epic,” they don’t mess around. Go bold or go home.

Del Taco Brings Back Taco-Burger Hybrid


Those who remember Del Taco’s Bun Taco will recall it’s essentially a taco made with hamburger buns. Kind of like a Sloppy Joe. The former addition to the Del Taco menu will now make its return just in time for the chain’s 50th anniversary along with two other items: the Taco Salad and Orange Shake.

The Bun Taco is made with seasoned ground beef, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce and a tomato slice sandwiched between a sesame seed bun. Also making a return is the Taco Salad made with lettuce and tortilla chips with seasoned ground beef, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes and Del Taco’s special white sauce. The new shake blends orange and vanilla flavors with whipped cream.

The items are a part of the Throwback Classics menu and will only be available for a limited time. The Bun Taco, however, will be available as a secret menu item that can still be ordered once the special ends.

Can we go bold with those?

Del Taco Has a Secret Menu, These Two Words at the Register Will Grant You Access

This week, our boy Marc dropped some heavy news during a 3 am drunken munchie run to Del Taco. Apparently, you can add “secret sauce” and fries to any item on the Del Taco menu by simply asking the cashier to “Go Bold” on your order. Meaning, we’ve been depriving our chicken soft tacos of fry-stuffed brilliance this entire time. Meaning, our lives have been a secret sauce-less lie void of meaning until now.

Not one to take the state of our fast food affairs lightly, we ventured to a local Del Taco to seek the truth. Upon arrival at the drive-thru, we asked the gentleman working the speaker box about this curious Go Bold rumor. He swiftly confirmed its existence and at that point, all hell broke loose. We promptly went, er, BOLD on the following: a quesadilla, a crispy shrimp burrito, three chicken soft tacos, a Double Del Cheeseburger, and a vanilla shake.

Needless to say, it was a hotmess. It was glorious. It was extreme bubble guts a few hours later but so, so worth it.

Check out the best spoils of our labor below.


Chicken Soft Taco + BOLD



Cheesy Quesadilla + BOLD



Double Del Cheeseburger + BOLD



Crispy Shrimp Taco + BOLD



Vanilla Milkshake + BOLD



The receipt: 39 cents charge per BOLD item



Fun fact: The secret sauce is made of the same magic mysterious-ness that appears on the coveted chicken soft taco.
