Fast food chain Taco Bell is set to remove a popular item from its menu to free up space to bring back two other items beloved by customers.
Starting on April 19, Taco Bell customers will no longer be able to purchase the Quesarito, which has been a menu staple since it debuted in 2014, The Takeout reported.
The Quesarito, which has only been available through the Taco Bell app or online over the last few months, features a burrito wrapped in a cheese quesadilla and was surrounded by a considerable amount of buzz when it was introduced.
The Takeout reported that the item is being removed from menus in order to bring back two popular menu items, the Bacon Club Chalupa and the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito.

The Bacon Club Chalupa contains ingredients similar to a club sandwich and has been on and off the menu since 1999.
The Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito was offered during the holiday season last year and contains a double serving of steak, rice, cheese, nacho cheese sauce, sour cream, tortilla strips, and is grilled with a layer of cheese on the exterior.

The Bacon Club Chalupa and the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito will cost $3.49 and $4.99 respectively.
The Quesarito has been slowly phased out of menus dating back to 2020 when the company "revamped" its menu during the coronavirus pandemic to streamline operations amid the supply chain crunch, The Takeout reported.

Taco Bell is known for pulling menu items but bringing them back at a later time for a temporary period which many expect will be the case with the Quesarito.
In addition to the menu changes, the company is testing a Cheesy Chicken Crispanada in the Knoxville, Tennessee market, Chew Boom reported.
