Tamales make their way back to Taco Bueno for a limited time just in time for the holidays.
Although tamales have their origins in Mexico, they’re now part of a quintessential Christmas dinner for many in the Southwest. That’s why many fast-food restaurants now offer the Mexican delicacy exclusively during the holidays. Heck, even Del Taco added tamales to its menus just a few hours ago.
Taco Bueno’s Tamales consist of masa filled with either pork or brisket and covered with rich chili sauce and the chain’s famous queso. They come served on a traditional Tex-Mex platter which includes rice, refried beans, guacamole, and chips.
The 3-Tamale Platter with three pork or brisket tamales, rice and beans goes for $5.99. There’s also a Tamale Sampler Platter that includes one pork or brisket tamale, one beef taco, and one beef enchilada for $5.99. You can also get a single tamale for 99 cents or a 3-pack of tamales with a side of chili sauce for $3.79. Taco Bueno tamales are also sold in 6-packs and 12-packs for $7.58 and $15.16, respectively. Prices may vary by location.
Tamales are available at participating Taco Bueno restaurants nationwide through the holiday season.
