Texans have loved the crispy goodness of the Texas T-Brand Tacos® at DQ® restaurants in the Lone Star state for decades as a beloved culinary tradition. And, while DQ restaurants in Texas will continue to serve up the classic-style tacos, they’ve upped the ante for those who savor a little more fire. Introducing the Carolina Reaper Taco®, available only at DQ restaurants in Texas. 

The Carolina Reaper Taco combines the intense heat of a thousand Texas summers with a sizzling lightning bolt from a West Texas storm, then finishes it off with the kick of a wild mustang to create the spicy deliciousness of the Carolina Reaper Taco. 

Each taco starts with a crispy corn shell filled with Carolina Reaper-infused Monterey Jack cheese, seasoned ground beef, crisp lettuce and ripe tomatoes. The tacos are topped off with a cool cilantro lime crema sauce to complete the legendary flavor of the Carolina Reaper Taco. 

Think you can handle it? The crispy Carolina Reaper Taco is so hot, it can only be found in Texas while supplies last at all participating DQ restaurants in Texas.

For the ultimate cool down, fans can pair the Carolina Reaper Taco with an iconic DQ Blizzard® Treat, float, shake, sundae, cone, Dilly® Bar, or DQ Sandwich Treat. It’s the perfect combination for dine-in, take-out or delivery where available. 

For a limited time, existing and new users of the DQ Texas mobile app can receive a free small Blizzard Treat (any flavor) with an order of three Carolina Reaper Tacos. App users simply enjoy the scrumptious Carolina Reaper Tacos between February 26 – March 3 and app users will earn a free Blizzard Treat that can be redeemed March 4 – March 10. 

For more than 75 years, DQ restaurants in Texas have been friendly, gathering spots where fans enjoy delicious treats and eats and create fond memories.
