Taco Bell is bringing back another menu item.

This time, the Mexican fast-food chain is bringing back one of the most popular limited-time offers in its history—the Quesalupa, which will make its return to the chain’s menus on Thursday, though the company’s loyalty customers will get access today.

The Quesalupa—a combination of a chalupa and a quesadilla that was made for the social media era—features a chalupa shell stuffed with pepper jack and mozzarella cheese and featuring seasoned beef, lettuce, cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes and sour cream.

Taco Bell said it is giving members of its Taco Bell Rewards Beta loyalty program—which is currently in test—early access on Wednesday. The menu item will be available to everyone on Thursday at $2.99, or $6.99 as part of a combo with two Crunchy Tacos and a large drink.

The Quesalupa was initially tested in Toledo in 2015 before debuting nationwide. The newest version, which features more cheese, was tested in Knoxville, Tenn., last year.

The company is marking the return of the product with a campaign called “Overhyped” that features a simple message, “We think you’ll like it.”

The Quesalupa is another limited-time offer. Its return comes as the chain is returning more products to its menu following the culling of several items last year—it is bringing back potatoes, for instance, following an outcry from the chain’s vegetarian customers.
