SAN ANTONIO, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Taco Cabana® has put its own twist on traditional Texas BBQ and brought a fan favorite back to the menu, re-introducing a line of hickory-smoked brisket tacos.

Visit your favorite Taco Cabana today and enjoy brisket menu items including breakfast brisket and egg tacos, plates featuring two brisket tacos, rice, beans and two freshly made flour tortillas; or a two brisket taco combo meal with chips, queso or guacamole and a 20-oz drink.

"Our brisket tacos were overwhelmingly popular last year, and we're delighted to bring brisket back," said Todd Coerver, chief marketing officer at Taco Cabana. "If guest feedback remains positive, we are considering adding our brisket offering to the permanent menu. Starting today, fans need to be sure and visit us on Facebook to tell us how much they love our brisket tacos if they would like to see us offer them year-round."

Taco Cabana seasons their brisket with salt, pepper and garlic before smoking it for several hours using hickory wood flavors. The brisket is then crisped on the flat grill before being served in a fresh flour tortilla.  

"We are constantly listening to our guests and strive to put items on the menu that appeal to their taste buds and reflect our commitment to serving fresh, high-quality Mexican food," said Smokey Waters, corporate chef at Taco Cabana.  "The unique combination of a well-known Mexican favorite and traditional Texas BBQ shows how we've put the Tex into Tex-Mex cuisine."
