Plant-based tacos are coming to Del Taco and Las Vegans will get to try them first.

On April 25, Del Taco will become the first national Mexican restaurant chain to offer plant-based tacos, called Beyond Tacos, at its 580 restaurants across the country. The restaurant chain teamed up with Beyond Meat to create the new taco.

Las Vegans will get a chance to try the Beyond Tacos though before the rest of the country. They will be available in Las Vegas on April 24 at the Del Taco restaurant at 511 S. Rainbow Boulevard.

“Fans across the country asked us to bring our craveable Beyond Tacos to their community,” said Barry Westrum, Del Taco’s Chief Marketing Officer. “While there were passionate guests in all parts of the country, Vegas residents spoke most loudly in numbers, so we’re thrilled to give locals a taste of our Beyond Tacos and Beyond Avocado Tacos, for free, before they launch nationwide on the 25th.”
