Happy National Taco DaySorry, today is not Taco Tuesday, even better, it is National Taco Day! The word taco, roughly translated, means "light lunch", which seems a bit odd considering most people can't resist tacos enough to keep it light. In fact, Americans ate over 4.5 billion tacos last year. That's a lot of tacos!
Everyone has their favorite type of taco- favorite toppings, favorite shell (crunchy or soft), favorite meat, and favorite cheese. Think of all the delicious combinations! YUM! What ever your favorite combination is be on the watch out for all the taco specials at your favorite restaurants and chains today. Here are a few I saw today.
TACO BELL has created a "gift set" of four tacos, including a crunchy taco, Doritos Locos taco, Cool Ranch Doritos Locos taco, and a Fiery Doritos Locos taco - all for only $5.
TACO BUENO is giving away a FREE crispy beef taco with any purchase.
CHUY'S is giving people who dress up in a full taco costume a free entrée. Other specials include a free crispy beef taco with an entrée purchase just for asking your server to "taco about it", and $1 add on tacos to any order.
JOSE'S SOUTHWESTERN GRILL is giving away FREE ground beef or shredded chicken tacos with the purchase of an entrée during lunch or dinner, you may just have to show your server where you found the offer on Facebook!
Where ever your favorite taco joint is, I hope you enjoy some great ones ( and maybe a free one or two)!
