ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) — Tacos or pizza? Why pick just one when you can have them both thanks to Tony Baloney’s in Atlantic City.

“I was like, ‘Yo, we don’t do tacos,” said Hauke. “They were like, ‘Yo, it’s taco Tuesday, what do you mean you don’t do tacos?'”
Hauke says they decided to make a taco pizza just for the kids, and the rest is history.
The Taco Pizza cost $10 for a single slice and $80 for a pie, but you won’t see it on their regular menu because it’s on the “not so secret menu.”MORE NEWS: Second Person, Jonathan Martinez, Dies After Feb. 26 Whitehall Township Walmart Parking Lot Double Shooting
