In between fielding countless Mean Girls references on Oct. 3, taco devotees were also girding their loins (or rather their stomachs) for the inevitable taco feast that would be going down on Thursday, Oct. 4, aka the very important national holiday dedicated to the most crave-worthy of food groups. Now, the big day is finally here, and your favorite Tex-Mex chains are ringing in the fiesta with deals that will have you inhaling tacos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Here's how to get free tacos on National Taco Day, because you're not going to want to sleep on the taco promos that dreams are made of.
While I informally celebrate Taco Tuesday every week because I'm all about living my best life, the first week of October is all about Taco Thursday and the freebies that I can score at every time of the day. Tacos are one of those rare food groups where it's socially acceptable to eat them at any time of the day, whether you're starting your day off with some breakfast tacos covered in queso or satisfying some late-night munchies at your go-to drive-through. You can definitely bet that I'll be taking full advantage of the foodie holiday on Oct. 4.
