Taco Bell Drops Its Potato Dishes in Menu Revamp
Taco Bell is axing all its potato dishes, among other offerings, in a big menu revamp scheduled for August 13. This impending menu overhaul was recently confirmed in a press release on Taco Bell’s website. The dishes that are being scrapped next month are:
- Grilled Steak Soft Taco
- 7-Layer Burrito
- Nachos Supreme
- Beefy Fritos Burrito
- Spicy Tostada
- Triple Layer Nachos
- Spicy Potato Soft Taco
- Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes
- Loaded Grillers (including Cheesy Potato and Beefy Nacho)
- Chips & Dips
- Mini Skillet Bowl
- Quesarito (this will be taken off the menu in restaurants, but still available via web or app order)
There will also be some new items available — a USD5 Grande Nachos Box and a USD1 Beef Burrito — but overall, this change represents a massive streamlining of the menu and restaurant operations. In recent months, fast-food chains like McDonald’s, as well as other restaurants, have made efforts to simplify their menus in order to trim costs during the pandemic.
“While change is hard, a simplified menu and innovation process will leave room for new fan favorites, continued progress in categories such as plant-based diets, and even opportunities for the return of some classics on a limited time basis,” Taco Bell reps wrote in the release.
