The MVP taco that Taco Junkies know and love – Torchy’s Tacos’ Tailgater – is back and ready for a W! There are no flags on this September Taco of the Month, arriving just in time to kick off the football season. 

The Tailgater features a panko-battered chicken tender on a bed of crispy bacon, with Torchy’s award-winning Green Chile Queso, Diablo wing sauce, poblano ranch slaw, blue cheese crumbles and a drizzle of honey, all served on a flour tortilla for $5.75.

“Football season is arguably the best time of the year, and we’re excited to get it started right with bold gameday flavors in our Tailgater Taco of the Month,” said Mike Rypka, founder of Torchy’s Tacos. “With a crispy panko chicken tender, Diablo wing sauce and a drizzle of our Green Chile Queso, it’s no question this taco should be first pick for a Damn Good tailgate!”

Of course, a proper tailgate isn’t complete without an ice-cold beer. Taco lovers can enjoy the Tailgater with $1 off draft New Belgium Voodoo Ranger IPAs all month long.* Add Torchy’s famous Green Chile Queso + Chips, fresh-made Guacamole or flavorful Street Corn for a winning starting lineup.

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.
