Taco Bell’s Nacho Fries Are Coming Back, Here’s How To Get Them For Free

Taco Bell’s Nacho Fries were the hot new fast food item of 2018, so it’s only fitting that the chain kick off 2019 with a brief return of the fan favorites.

Starting January 24, Nacho Fries will be back on the menu nationwide. This is only going to be for a limited time run, so those of you looking to get those custom fry-filled creations should head to Taco Bell sooner rather than later once the fries return.

Taco Bell representatives have confirmed that all forms of the Nacho Fries will be back on the menu. This includes the regular side of fries with nacho cheese sauce, as well as the two different sizes of loaded fries (Supreme and Bell Grande) that come topped with same beef, nacho cheese, tomatoes, and sour cream.

Prior to the official launch, there will be a few chances for some people to get Nacho Fries ahead of their targeted release. Starting January 18, guests who travel to certain Taco Bell locations between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. may find a surprise order of fries and nacho cheese sauce with their meal. It’ll be completely random as to who gets the fries, but if you want an early shot at them, head to any of the following locations:

  • 2222 Barranca Pkwy, Irvine, CA
  • 2404 North Washington Avenue, Dallas, TX
  • 4248 Dale Blvd, Dale City, VA
  • 303 West Imperial Highway, Brea, CA
  • 1100 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD
  • 4300 Highway 360, Fort Worth, TX
  • 4101 Campus Drive, Irvine, CA
  • 500 8th Ave, New York, NY
  • 840 8th Ave, New York, NY
  • 224 7th Ave, New York, NY
  • 4030 Belden Village St, NW, Canton OH
  • 5772 Hollister St., Houston, TX
  • 3350 W. Roosevelt Rd, Chicago, IL
  • 1037 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA

This giveaway will only happen while supplies last, but if there’s fries leftover after Day 1, the whole thing could start over again on the 19th.

If you’re not near any of these areas, you’ll still be able to buy the fries when the nationwide drop happens on the 24.

Taco Bell Nacho Fries Are Officially Launching Nationwide This Month

After months of speculation as to whether they would officially be happening or not, we have confirmation that Taco Bell nacho fries will indeed be making a nationwide appearance.

Starting January 25th, the crispy spuds will be available in multiple forms. The simplest way to get them is off the Dollar Menu, served with a side of nacho cheese for dipping. A $5 Box with fries, a Doritos Locos Taco, a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, and a medium drink, will also be included in Taco Bell’s bargain offerings.

Additionally, loaded forms of the nacho fries will also be available, just like the ones our own Elie Ayrouth discovered being tested in SoCal last year. These come with beef, pico de gallo, nacho cheese, and sour cream, and can be ordered in two different sizes. The Supreme option costs $2.49, while the Bell Grande version costs $3.49.

There’s also a secret hack that Taco Bell revealed to Foodbeast to try while fries are available. For 49 cents extra, you can add/substitute fries to any item on their menu. That means you can hack your own California burritos or other fries-loaded creations for a pretty cheap but tasty upgrade.

We can’t wait to try out a few of our own when Taco Bell’s fries officially drop.

Taco Bell Begins Testing California Burritos Loaded With French Fries

Brace yourselves, because Taco Bell is finally looking at on-boarding a Golden State legend that’s almost as classic as the Showtime Lakers: French fry-loaded California burritos.

Native to San Diego, the Cali burrito typically comes loaded with guac, meat, cheese, salsa, and plenty of crispy spuds. Taco Bell’s version, called the California Loaded Fries Burrito, hits all of those marks, opting for ground beef as the protein of choice and forgoing regular shredded cheese for nacho cheese and sour cream. Currently, you can only find them as a test item at locations in Charleston, West Virginia. They’re priced at $1.99 apiece, and are also available in a $5 box with a Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco, a crunchy taco, and a medium drink.

It’s not just California burritos that Taco Bell is testing, however, as they’re also unleashing  a trio of Loaded Fries Burritos, with the surfer staple being just one of the possible varieties. You can also choose from Chipotle (the same burrito, but with creamy chipotle sauce instead of guac) and Supreme (which has neither chipotle sauce nor guac, and appears to be the basic version of the set of wraps). All three versions can be purchased in the above a la carte or in $5 box selections.

While it’s legit to see a SoCal burrito legend make its way to the Bell, what’s more exciting is that we’re getting yet another test item containing Taco Bell’s fries. After an earlier test of nacho fries and some hints that more would be in store, we’re increasingly hopeful that a national launch of Taco Bell’s crispy potatoes is coming soon.

For now, we’ll have to settle for the test of these Loaded Fries Burritos, which are available in Charleston through late December.

Taco Bell Hints That It May Start Selling Fries In The Near Future

Taco Bell fries have been spotted in test markets in recent months. Now, it seems like those crispy spuds may be heading to locations nationwide thanks to a hint dropped by The Bell itself.

It all started with the above tweet from Blink-182 bass player Mark Hoppus, who put Del Taco over the ubiquitous taco chain because of the fact that they had fries. Taco Bell just couldn’t help responding to it, and in doing so, left open the possibility that they would begin selling a similar item in stores.

As previously mentioned, Taco Bell was testing out nacho fries in some select locations, and even had a single restaurant selling the same cheesy spuds alongside plain, seasoned ones. Based on that and Taco Bell’s recent Twitter hint, it’s very possible that one or both of these items could be hitting restaurants nationwide soon.

We’ll have to keep an eye out to be sure if this is really happening or not, but Taco Bell’s tweet could very well be the lightning before the thunder.
