Del Taco puts shrimp back on the menu

Del Taco has brought back shrimp to its menu with shrimp tacos, a shrimp burrito and surf and turf burrito.

“Our fans look forward to the return of our famous crispy shrimp, and this year we set out to give them even more of what they crave with our new, bigger, better jumbo shrimp,” said Noah Chillingworth, vice president of marketing for Del Taco.

Del Taco also serves fish tacos made with Alaska pollock covered in a crispy beer batter.

“Only Del Taco can freshly prepare quality seafood tacos and burritos and serve them at the speed of our drive-thru. With Lent season beginning March 1, we’re giving our guests even more delicious options at the value for which Del Taco is known,” Chillingworth said.

Del Taco operates a total of more than 550 restaurants in 15 states. In Grand Junction, restaurants are located at 2878 North Ave. and 2513 U.S. Highway 6 & 50. For more information, visit the website at
