Taco Bell removing quesarito from menu, bring back two fan favorites
Fast food chain Taco Bell is set to remove a popular item from its menu to make room to bring back two more items beloved by customers.
Starting April 19, Taco Bell customers will no longer be able to purchase the Quesarito, which has been a menu staple since its debut in 2014. Takeout reported.
The Quesarito, which has only been available through the Taco Bell app or online for the past few months, features a burrito wrapped in a cheese quesadilla and was surrounded by a fair amount of buzz when it was introduced.
Takeout reported that the item is being removed from the menu to bring back two popular menu items, the Bacon Club Chalupa and the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito.
The Bacon Club Chalupa features ingredients similar to a club sandwich and has been on and off the menu since 1999.
The Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito was introduced last year during the holiday season and includes a double serving of steak, rice, cheese, nacho cheese sauce, sour cream, tortilla strips, and a layer of grilled cheese on the outside. is
The Bacon Club Chalupa and Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito will cost $3.49 and $4.99, respectively.
The Takeout reported that the Quesarito has been phased out of the 2020 menu after the company “revamped” its menu during the coronavirus pandemic to streamline operations amid supply chain shortages.
Taco Bell has been known to pull menu items but then bring them back for a temporary period which many hope will be the case with the quesarito.
In addition to the menu changes, the company is testing a cheesy chicken crispanada in the Knoxville, Tennessee market, Chew Boom reported.
