National Taco Day 2019: Where to Find Free Tacos and Other Deals
Endless tacos, free fish tacos, taco gift sets—need we say more?
Although National Cheeseburger Day and National Coffee Day weren’t all that long ago, there’s already another “national food day” on the horizon—National Taco Day. On October 4, several restaurants including Taco Bell, On the Border, and Long John Silver’s (yes, they have tacos) will be offering deals and free tacos to celebrate. Taco Bell has a taco gift set you can send to a friend; at On the Border, you can grab endless tacos starting at $8.99. Check out all of the deals we've found so far below, and keep coming back up until October 4 in case we find more deals.
At all Bubbakoo's locations, you can celebrate with $1 tacos. The deal is limited to five tacos per person, but $5 for five tacos sounds like a steal, if you ask us.
From 11 am to 2 pm, stop by Chronic Tacos to get one free taco per person. All you need to redeem the deal is the secret code word, which Chronic Tacos will reveal on social media—stay tuned.
Condado Tacos, which has locations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Michigan, has two promotions for National Taco Day. Guests can enjoy one free taco with any purchase; T-shirts made in collaboration with Homage (a vintage T-shirt company) will also launch in-stores and online on October 4.
At all Coyo Taco locations in south Florida, you can get a limited-edition Barbacoa taco platter for just $9. Said platter includes "adobo marinated Lamb shoulder, charred tomatillo salsa and queso fresco paired with roasted aromatic Lamb Consommé."
Del Taco has two deals for National Taco Day. The first is a free Del Taco with any purchase through the app (valid with a coupon only); or, have your pick of a Beyond Taco or Beyond Avocado Taco free with any purchase through the app. (Again, valid with a coupon only.)
