Here’s Where To Get Deals And Free Food For National Taco Day [UPDATING]


There’s a reason tacos get their own day of the week. They’re that freaking important. “Taco Tuesday” is a mainstay at bars and Mexican restaurants throughout the country. A taco and a Mexican beer or margarita is the perfect way to get your week into gear and propel you into the weekend (where you might end up eating more tacos because they are the best). But, even though this spicy, meaty, cheesy, corn-chip envelope of magical goodness gets its own day of the week, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t also get its own national holiday. If anything, the taco should be celebrated for its hand-held tastiness every day of the year. But, we’ll settle for one day and that day happens to be today (October 4th).

So get ready because there are deals to be had on “Taco Wednesday”.
