faster drive thru service at Taco Cabana with staff positioned in the DT lanes.

Both our customers and our staff love that we’ve added real people with tablets in our drive-thru lanes. It helps speed up our order-taking and gives our staff a head-start. They know what needs to be cooked because the grill cook sees what’s coming in directly from the tablet to their order screens above the grill. By the time the customer gets to the window the order should be together. We’ve been working with the tablets now for about a year. When our staff isn’t in the drive-thru lanes with tablets, the customers notice. They are very happy to have us trying to speed up service. We have a competition with a traveling trophy among the Albuquerque/Rio Rancho stores for fastest service in the drive-thru.

Curbside pickup for the fastest & easiest service.

Our curbside service is waiting for you! It’s great for large orders. Just order on the website and select curbside service. Our friendly staff will deliver it right to your car.


Great Job and career opportunities at Taco Cabana!

Taco Cabana is always looking for new talent. We offer part-time and full-time positions with flexible schedules, competitive pay, bonus opportunities, healthcare benefits, paid vacation, cross-training and room for advancement.

“This is a very good company. We work for very good people. I have worked for these gentlemen since I was sixteen in El Paso. They have allowed me autonomy to make decisions for the store. It is good that the owners are local and are available. I’m a woman. I’m Hispanic and I run the #1 store in Taco Cabana. Here you’re a doctor, counselor, they want your expertise. This is not a job to me. This is a career. I chose this career and I absolutely love it”

– Susan Trillo, General Manager
