All brisket items are served with a side of barbeque sauce. The three new items are available for a limited time only while supplies last. Guests shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to try them while in restaurants!

“Culinary innovation remains a priority for TC in 2024 and after a successful market test in the Houston area, we are thrilled to bring a new, unique smoked brisket back to TC fans across Texas,” said Ulyses Camacho, Taco Cabana President and COO.

“It’s been several years since we served brisket and during that time, we consistently heard from guests asking us to bring it back to the TC menu. That wait is over! The TC team has worked tirelessly over the last year on innovating and developing this new brisket flavor profile. There’s nothing like Texas brisket and we are confident that this brisket is going to be one of many TC culinary successes in 2024. We look forward to delivering a variety of flavorful brisket experiences to our guests starting on January 22 – order online or visit us in the restaurants,” said Camacho.
