Now that we're into the month of October, one of my favorite holidays has finally arrived! No, I'm not talking about Halloween... I'm talking about National Taco Day!

Tomorrow, Friday, October 4th, is National Taco Day 2019. That means that:

  1. Lots of local and chain restaurants are offering great deals on tacos
  2. Every taco you eat has zero calories

Ok, so that second one might be a lie, but the first one definitely isn't! Here is a rundown of National Taco Day deals from popular chains (all deals are for Friday, October 4th unless stated otherwise):

  • Fuzzy's Taco Shop
    • On National Taco Day Eve (October 3rd), get $1 tacos all day when you dine-in
  • Taco Bell
    • National Taco Day gift sets (including two crunchy tacos and two Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos) are $5
    • You can also send a digital gift card to a loved one HERE
  • Taco John's
    • Get a free crispy beef taco using a coupon on the Taco John's rewards app
  • Long John Silver's
    • Get a free taco of your choice (grilled shrimp, grilled salmon, or wild Alaska Pollock) with any purchase
