Fast-food restaurant chain Taco John’s has expanded its value menu with the introduction of two new offerings, the Refried Bean Tostada and the Beefy Tostada.

Priced at $2 and $3, respectively, these items have been launched for a limited time at participating locations.

Each Tostada begins with a crispy corn tortilla shell, cooked in-restaurant daily, and is topped with five layers.

The toppings include North American beef or refried beans, Cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, housemade Pico de Gallo (a type of salsa) and queso fresco or white cheese.

Taco John’s corporate chef and menu innovation director Brad Bergaus said: “At Taco John’s, we understand the importance of providing our guests affordable dining options without compromising on taste or quality.

“The Taco John’s ValuEST Menu has always delivered the most bang for your buck, and our new Tostadas give diners another delicious choice with all the big, bold flavour they crave.”

The chain noted that these Tostadas are designed to be satisfying yet wallet-friendly, providing value at a time when dining out costs are rising and many value menus are shrinking.

The company now offers nine items priced between $2 and $4, including Cheesy Beef and Potato Taco, the Four-Cheese Quesadilla, the Spicy Chicken and Potato Griller and the Bean Burrito.

In April 2024, Taco John’s introduced Taco Pizza, a unique combination of taco ingredients in a pizza format, available at 400 locations, for a limited period.

The pizza features a ten-inch corn and wheat flour crust with refried beans, seasoned beef, a four-cheese blend sauce, and tortilla chips.
