Tacos aren't just for Tuesdays

Celebrate National Taco Day

In the U.S., tacos were first mentioned in a 1905 newspaper article. At the time, Mexican immigrants were starting to move to the U.S. for mining and railroad jobs, and they brought their food tastes with them. The rest seems to be history.

We all know the phrase, TACO TUESDAYS, but I am willing to bet that most people don’t save tacos eating just for Tuesdays. With National Taco Day on October 4th and so many local options, it’s easy to celebrate tacos in October.

The origins of National Taco Day can be attributed to Roberto L. Gomez. Gomez was a San Antonio journalist in the 1960s with a passion for Mexican cuisine. Believing that Mexican cuisine deserved awareness in America, Gomez established the National Taco Council.

If your love language is Tacos just as much as mine, here are some recommendations on places around town to celebrate. Let’s get eating, last year Americans ate over 4.5 billion tacos! That’s 490,000 miles of tacos, which could take you to the moon and back. Cheers to breaking the record this year!
