Burger King rolls out $1 Crispy Taco nationwide for limited time

Talk about Taco Tuesday.

Starting Tuesday, Burger King is rolling out a $1 Crispy Taco nationwide for a limited time. The new menu item has been tested out in select restaurants prior to this launch across America.

"We’ve seen success with tacos in our west coast restaurants and knew it was time to bring this west coast favorite nationwide,” said Chris Finazzo, Burger King’s president, North America. “The Crispy Taco adds variety to our snacking items and truly hits the spot.”

The Crispy Taco boasts a crispy tortilla shell stuffed with seasoned beef, shredded cheddar and lettuce and topped with taco sauce.

While it costs just a buck at most locations, prices will be higher at Alaska and Hawaii eateries.

As for why a burger and fries chain is getting into taco territory, don’t forget that Mexican-inspired fast food chain Taco Bell recently brought back Nacho Fries for a limited time.

A standard order of these seasoned fries and nacho cheese dip costs about $1.29 at most locations. Or you can step it up with an order of Nacho Fries Supreme (which costs $2.89 and comes loaded with seasoned beef, nacho cheese, tomatoes and reduced fat sour cream) or Nacho Fries BellGrande, a bigger version of the Supreme.
