Big Mac Tacos blend the classic burger flavors with the fun of tacos for an irresistible fusion.

Did you know?

Did you know the Big Mac was first introduced by McDonald's in 1967 in Pittsburgh by Jim Delligatti, an early franchisee? It then went national in 1968 and became a fast-food icon.

Step aside traditional tacos, and make way for Big Mac Tacos, a playful twist uniting the iconic flavors of a classic fast-food burger with the zest and fun of taco night! Imagine the savory beef, special sauce, and the distinctive pickles, all snugly wrapped in a soft tortilla. It's a dish with a story as quirky and fun as its flavors; taco meets burger in a fusion that's both comfortingly familiar and thrillingly new.

These tacos are an ode to experimental American fast food trends of the late 20th century, where bold entrepreneurs and cooks would merge different cuisines, creating hybrids that we now cherish. Back in the '70s, variations of the Big Mac made way into the hearts (and stomachs) of millions. Now, in this appetizing crossover, the taco shell becomes the stage for a Big Mac performance, promising a standing ovation from your taste buds.


Gather these ingredients to bring the Big Mac sensation into the realm of tacos, ensuring every bite is nostalgically scrumptious.

The special sauce and pickles are the true narrators of the Big Mac story, bringing the distinct flavors we've all come to love into the taco universe.
