The nuggets are offered in five or 10-piece boxes, with a spicy jalapeno buttermilk marinade and either Bell Sauce or Jalapeno Honey Mustard.

The Chalupas are stuffed with mozzarella and pepper jack cheese shells and then filled with shredded chicken or grilled marinated steak, along with a blend of cilantro and onions plus jalapeno ranch sauce.
