    Happy Birthday! to Taco lovers around the world on October 4th. Have fun, guys, and gals.

    You have everything in a meal- the protein of your choice, vegetables, greens, and onions or picked onions as you like; on a lovely soft or hard taco shell-you get your carbohydrates from.

    A wholesome, complete meal that is very much affordable. 

    Today, there are amazing special offers for the celebrative event around.

    I am visiting my daughter in York City.

    Her apartment has a taco event where each tenant gets tacos and a drink in the afternoon.

    It is a joy that this web post spreads all kinds of this particular dish, which has promotional offers and is free in some places.

    I appreciate you putting together this compilation of National Taco Day specials! Having all these tasty choices conveniently listed is fantastic. I’ve observed there’s quite a selection of deals featured, and I’m curious if you could share your personal favorite or top pick among these offerings. Your recommendation for a must-try option would be greatly appreciated! 

    • Alyce says:

      Hello, Kiersti! Moe’s and Surcheros are two of the specials on National Taco Day that I’m planning to enjoy this year! The Taco Bell free taco day offer for a 30-day “Taco Lover’s Pass” is also one of the top deals for National Taco Day!!

    Hi Alyce, thank you for this useful and fun article that shows the best deals and freebies for National Taco Day. The list of restaurants and chains that offer discounts, coupons, or free tacos on this day. The list of restaurants and chains that provide offers for this day is very complete, nothing seems to be missing. This article is a great resource for anyone who loves tacos and wants to save some money and celebrate.

    It’s funny that having lived in Mexico for more than six years, I never celebrated National Taco Day. I didn’t even know it existed. Maybe because every day is a Taco Day in Mexico 😊. I learned from the web search results that National Taco Day is celebrated on different dates in Mexico and the United States. Anyway, I will celebrate this on October 4th.

    Thank you for sharing this informative and tasty article!

    • Alyce says:

      Hello, Pablo! This article is about National Taco Day in the USA, but I would imagine that you are right about finding great taco specials every day in Mexico! 🙂 I hope you found some great taco day deals to enjoy from your location!!

    Hi there,

    I love tacos but I never knew there is a national taco day! I am a vegetarian so my choice is pretty limited. However, I enjoy it as long as it has my favourite avocado and chilli in it. I love spicy stuff. 

    It is so nice to have so many offers and contests even on social media for us who can’t go out much. I love it. I hope to win free tacos for a year! Let’s go fo it!

    • Alyce says:

      Hello! It’s fantastic that tacos are so easy to customize – they can be a great option for vegetarians! 

      Good luck with the contests!!
