Taco Cabana debuts new menu items, including a Big Red margarita
San Antonio-based Tex-Mex chain Taco Cabana has unveiled new limited-time-only menu items coming to restaurants by mid-February through the end of March, including a new margarita flavor in partnership with Big Red.
The Big Red margarita will hit stores starting on February 22, also known as National Margarita Day. The restaurant revealed it teamed up with Keurig Dr Pepper again to develop the new flavor, after previously creating the unique Dr Pepper margarita in 2020.
The Big Red will be offered as a single serving, in a margarita yard, and by the gallon. For a limited time, diners can opt to purchase a combo meal with the new margarita and two barbacoa tacos.
"We have a lot of great things happening at Taco Cabana this month," said Taco Cabana President and COO Ulyses Camacho in a press release. "We look forward to having our guests try them in our restaurants or wherever they choose to get them delivered."
Among the new menu offerings are brand new fish tacos, consisting of a beer-battered Icelandic cod with pepper-limón sauce, finished with the classic lettuce and pico de gallo toppings. The fish tacos will land on the menu just in time for those who observe Lent, the release says.

The second new item coming to participating restaurants is the chilaquiles bowl: scrambled eggs laid over a bed of crispy tortilla strips, topped with sour cream, cotija cheese, and a choice of ranchero or green sauce.
In a flavorful return to the Taco Cabana menu, the classic salsa verde is coming back to the in-store salsa bar and can be added to takeout orders.
Taco Cabana was founded in 1978 and operates 143 company-owned restaurants in Texas. The brand specializes in Tex-Mex-inspired food including enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, flautas, burritos, tacos, freshly-made flour tortillas and a selection of made-from-scratch salsas and sauces.
