Vegan Options at Del Taco

The vegan options at Del Taco now includes Beyond Meat! Let me repeat that in case you hadn’t heard this already… Del Taco has Beyond Meat! Del Taco seems to be on the forefront of the new (and awesome!) trend of fast food companies incorporating some type of vegan “meat” substitute into their menus. The beauty of supply and DEMAND is starting to work in our favor! With Beyond Meat now a vegan option at Del Taco, it opens up a ton of the menu for you to be able to get creative with. Here is what we currently have:

Our Picks

Jen’s Pick: My top pick is the Beyond Avocado Taco! I’m also a big fan of tostadas & while theirs is very simple once you ask for no cheese, I still like them–with a drizzle of sauce on top.
