Taco John’s now selling build-your-own burritos, $1 off with our secret code


This post is for Taco John’s fans, or couponing types who might consider eating there if they’re getting a discount.

The “West-Mex” fast food chain is giving Lawrence diners a sneak preview of two new menu items, Santa Fe Burritos and Santa Fe Bowls (you choose your own meat, salsa and other toppings, Chipotle-style but without as many options). They won’t be offered nationwide until July 8, but they’re available in Lawrence starting today.

Taco John’s shared a code for my Lawrence.com readers to get coupons for $1 off the new offerings. To get the coupon, text VIP19 to 35880. The code is valid through July 1. (Starting on July 8, though, it looks like Taco John’s may be offering some items for free, according to their website.)

Lawrence’s three Taco John’s locations are at 2309 Haskell Ave. (23rd and Haskell), 1626 W. 23rd St. and 1101 W. Sixth St. (Sixth and Maine). Taco John’s announcement didn’t include the price of the Santa Fe items, but I assume that even at full price they’ll go for cheaper than the ones at go-to build-your-own burrito joints Chipotle or Freebirds.

Tips welcome!
