The most-anticipated menu item release of the year will be available crisped to perfection with bold Mexican seasoning and served with a dippable side of warm Nacho Cheese, beginning January 25.
In their leading role, Nacho Fries demonstrate Taco Bell’s continued commitment to delivering amazing value for just a dollar in a way only they can. Nacho Fries come off the heels of Taco Bell’s shared plans to introduce 20 $1 items on menus nationwide and in test markets this year, on top of 20 mainstay menu items for just $1.
Approved for hungry audiences everywhere, Nacho Fries will make their nationwide menu debut for a limited time a la carte for $1. The fries will also be served Supreme for $2.49 or Bell Grande for $3.49, topped with beloved Taco Bell add-ons, including beef, Pico de Gallo, nacho cheese and sour cream.

A Taco Bell fries release has been rumored since buzzworthy tests with select audiences in West Virginia and Bakersfield, CA markets last spring. Even recent supporting roles in the testing of the California Burritos in Charleston, WV have added to the fan speculation.
