Watch yourself and act right, ‘cause Torchy’s Tacos’ Kingpin taco is back and ready to reclaim its throne as October’s Taco of the Month. Featuring green chile pork carnitas topped with black beans, fried plantains, sour cream, cotija cheese, pickled onions, cilantro and avocado sauce on a flour tortilla for $5.50, it’s an offer Taco Junkies can’t refuse.

“Our fans have been asking for the return of the Kingpin, and we knew we had to deliver,” said Mike Rypka, founder of Torchy’s Tacos. “With a delicious combination of unique and flavorful ingredients like sweet, fried plantains and fall-apart tender pork carnitas simmered with green chiles, this taco’s bound to make you feel like a boss!”

If you know what’s good for ya, you’ll pair the Kingpin with Torchy’s new Shakedown Margarita, which is sure to rattle you frozen or on the rocks. The Shakedown Margarita is made with 100% Pure Agave Reposado Tequila by Exotico, Triple Sec and freshly squeezed lime juice flavored with ginger.

Portions of the proceeds from Taco of the Month sales go to Torchy’s charitable partners, including the Make-a-Wish Foundation, MD Anderson and Phoenix House.

Torchy’s Tacos is growing its footprint across the U.S. with 95 locations in 10 states and counting, with new locations opening soon in Virginia, Texas and Colorado. The brand also recently announced plans to enter Arizona and Florida in 2022. In addition, Torchy’s is introducing its first-ever rewards program and fans can visit to pre-enroll for surprise and delight offers and access to unique Torchy’s experiences you can’t get anywhere else when the program launches soon!

Torchy’s continues to monitor and follow the latest health and safety guidelines in each of its restaurants. Guests can safely dine-in or satisfy their taco cravings at home by ordering for pickup or delivery through the new Torchy’s App, available for download from the Apple App Store and Android Google Play.
