Jack in the Box Wiki


The Monster Taco is a taco sold at Jack in the Box. It is a larger version of the regular taco and seen as the successor to the Super Taco.

It was discontinued in 2009[1] due to underwhelming sales,[2] then later brought back in October 2013[3] after "loyal fans howled" for its return.[4] It was discontinued again in 2019, for unknown reasons, and is planned to return on the menu October 4th, 2021. (No citation other than being unable to purchase and item no longer displayed on the Jack In The Box website.)

Its name is similar to the Monster Burger, which was discontinued due to its role in the 1993 E. coli outbreak.


The Monster Taco is a "monster-sized" hard shell taco with ground beef filling, two slices of American cheese, shredded lettuce, and taco sauce.[5]
