We're as tired of National [Whatever] Day as you are, but we never tire of good deals on food. So raise a tortilla to #NationalTacoDay on Oct. 4.
50-cent tacos: Sunday, Oct. 4
On The Border celebrates a day devoted to tacos with 50-cent mini crispy tacos. They challenge you: "How many tacos can you eat?" Sounds like a dare.
The mini crispy tacos come in ground beef, chicken tinga and veggie. The deal is good for dine-in only, and all D-FW restaurants are participating. Find your On The Border here.
$1 tacos: Monday, Oct. 5
Nearly all of the baja tacos will cost $1 at Fuzzy's Taco Shops on the day after #NationalTacoDay. The baja tacos come on soft or crispy tortillas and include ingredients such as eggs, chorizo, shredded chicken, ground beef, shredded spicy pork, crawfish and more.
The deal is dine-in only and excludes baja tacos made with fajita meat, shrimp or "California Heat." Includes all Fuzzy's nationwide and the 40-some restaurants in Dallas-Fort Worth. Find your Fuzzy's here.
Buy from the best
Dallas Morning News restaurant critic Leslie Brenner has a list of the best tacos in North Texas. We don't have information on whether they're running #NationalTacoDay specials, but many serve tacos for only a few bucks each.
If you'd rather chart your own path, join a Tour de Taco in Oak Cliff on Sunday, Oct. 4. Attendees will bike to three taquerias -- a total of about 7 miles. You can do it.
