Taco John’s was once a small taco stand located in Wyoming that’s grown to nearly 400 restaurants nationwide. While not as well recognized as competitors like Taco Bell, Taco John’s has been credited with helping to make the concept of Taco Tuesday popular. The most recognized menu item at Taco John’s is arguably the Six Pack and a Pound combo deal that gets you six hard or soft shell tacos and a pound of Potato Ole’s. I’ve ordered it many times. 

You’ll find updated menu prices for everything on the Taco John’s menu for 2024 below. I also share daily specials and discounts that allow to claim a free small order of those famous Potato Ole’s.

FAQs about the Taco John’s Menu

What menu items have been discontinued at Taco John’s?

There aren’t many discontinued menu items at Taco John’s that I could find. The churros briefly disappeared from the menu but promptly returned after the outcry from loyal customers.

One item that has been removed is the Nachos Navidad menu item that was basically a plate of tortilla chips covered in cheese, guacamole, sour cream, black olives, ground beef, refried beans, and tomatoes. This menu item was promoted heavily during the holidays during the late 1990s, but is no longer available.

What are the most popular menu items at Taco John’s?

It’s no surprise that Taco John’s a popular item is the humungous Boss Burrito. It’s a protein monster stuffed end-to-end in one of the chain’s famous crispy taco shells. Its weight alone exceeds 1 pound and is a combination of black beans, steak or grilled chicken, and cilantro-lime rice. If this burrito doesn’t fill you up, a side of Potato Ole’s will.

Who is the target audience of Taco John’s menu?

Lately, Taco John’s digital marketing efforts are targeted towards the blooming new generation of teens and young adults. While their main target market is loyal customers over the years who are into Mexican food at an affordable price, they are looking to innovate their menu to accommodate the younger demographic.

One of my favorite advertisements ever at Taco John’s has to be the companies version of “Feliz Navidad” that was played non-stop during the holidays during my childhood. If you’re too young to remember it, here’s a link to the 1998 television commercial below that promotes the Nachos Navidad menu item. Good luck getting this jingle out of your head.
