News: Del Taco - Crispy Shrimp is Back

Del Taco brings back Crispy Shrimp for a limited-run this fall and adds a new spicy option. The crispy fried little shrimp are available in burrito or taco form.

The Crispy Shrimp Taco features a flour tortilla folded around crispy shrimp, cabbage, secret sauce, and pico de gallo salsa. The spicy version swaps out the secret sauce for a spicy sauce.

The Crispy Shrimp Burrito is contains the same ingredients plus seasoned rice wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

To promote the return (and garner more Facebook "likes"), Del Taco has a coupon available for their Facebook fans good for a free Crispy Shrimp Taco with any beverage purchase.

Nutritional info not available on Crispy Shrimp items.


  1. Never have chowed down upon a shrimp or fish taco.

    Well, a friend's ol' lady made some yummy tuna tacos once but they were more akin to a tuna sandwich than a taco.

    The thought of a shrimp taco does not commence the clamoring of the mental alarm shrieking "I gotta' get me one of them."

    Doesn't really matter in this particular instance since Del Taco does not reside in this deplorable backwards hillbilly heaven/haven where many of the denizens rate intelligence based upon the decibel amount streaming out of their engine's exhaust.

  2. I've had Del Taco's shrimp tacos before... they are pretty damn skimpy on the shrimp.. and the flavor was zero... don't bother.

  3. I'm not surprised, I wasn't impressed at all with their fish tacos. What's up with cabbage and seafood in a taco? The cabbage throws it off for me.

  4. The cabbage is characteristic of Baja style. If you see cabbage in tacos, it's authentic. If you see shredded lettuce and cheese, run away.
