TJ® Kitchen

Some might say a job in the Taco John’s Test Kitchen is one of the best in the world. Follow our Corporate Chef Bob Karisny and his team members Sissy and Carl as they stir up new menu creations and research today’s food trends. They might even throw in a few recipes.

Prepare for Greatness!

Something exciting is happening at Taco John's® today! Last year, Carl created a new menu item that includes Flamin' Hot® Cheetos® snacks. After conducting research with our guests, with the restaurant teams, and partnering with our vendors on the best prices available, we are happy to introduce the Flamin' Hot® Cheetos® Burrito!

Gorditas in Mexico City

During a recent trip to Mexico City, we were taught to make authentic Mexico City-style Gorditas by Chef Ricardo Muñoz.. Gordita literally translates to “little fat one” (and can be used in a derogatory way), but Chef Muñoz assured us the term Gordita used for this menu item is only used with the utmost respect.
