“Our Fresh Guac is so good, it even elevates the competition when added to their items,” said Tim Hackbardt, Del Taco’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Try it on or in one of our freshly prepared Tacos or Burritos, or add it to your favorite drive-thru item from the competition. Either way, we hope everyone celebrates National Drive-Thru Day with some free Fresh Guac from Del Taco.”

Del Taco’s newest premium ingredient, Fresh Guacamole, is crafted in each restaurant daily with just four simple ingredients:

  • Hass avocados
  • Handmade pico de gallo
  • Fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • Special seasoning blend

The recent launch of Fresh Guacamole builds on Del Taco’s unique value oriented QSR+ position and expands on the foundation of fresh-grilled chicken, carne asada steak, freshly grated cheddar cheese, and its signature slow-cooked beans made from scratch. It is the brand’s next step in freshness that naturally follows the introduction of fresh avocado slices a few years ago and its more recent move to dump its Nacho Cheese pump and elevate guests to creamy Queso Blanco, crafted with real cheese, real milk, jalapeños and heavy cream.
