Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with 'Epic Burrito Challenge'

Del Taco Adds Flavor to Cinco de Mayo


There are many ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo: eat, drink, dance! Del Taco is raising the stakes (or is that steaks?) with the "Epic Burrito Challenge."

The fast-service Mexican restaurant launched the competition four years ago, and the 2017 edition will be held at the Dearborn Heights store at 5644 Telegraph Road.

Here's how it works: the first 10 people to go to the store and register at 10 a.m. on May 5th will be in the competition. Each will be challenged to eat

Two of Del Taco's signature, one-pound Epic Burritos within 15 minutes. The first person to finish two burritos, or the person who eats the most, will win one free Epic Burrito each week for one year. The second place winner will receive a catering package for up to 20 people from Del Taco, and third place will receive one free meal of their choice. Plus, each competitor will receive a special Del Taco t-shirt to celebrate the event.

"Our Epic Burrito Challenge has been a signature even for us for the last three years and had been a unique, fun and interactive way for us to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with our guests," said Barb Pasciak, local franchise marketing director of Del Taco.

The Epic Burritos have many different flavors, including Grilled Chicken Avocado, Steak & Potato and Bacon Ranch Chicken Avocado.

In addition to the big challenge, all metro-Detroit Del Tacos will be offering $.59 value tacos and $1 Del Tacos on Cinco de Mayo from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
