In honor of National Taco Day, many restaurants and businesses are offering special deals and goodies to help you celebrate the holiday.

Who doesn't love celebrating those fun "food-themed" national and international days?? Especially when it's National Taco Day! Now this is definitely a "weird holiday" we can get behind.

National Taco Day is October 4th (Thursday). Unfortunately, it couldn't fall on Tuesday and be National Taco Day and Taco Tuesday on the same day - Bummer, we know. BUT - That will happen in 2022, so you have a few years to plan for that big event.

Just because it isn't Taco Tuesday, doesn't mean this National Taco Day is going to be a bust. There are plenty of businesses all over the country, and right here in Central New York that are offering special deals...

COLD STONE CREAMERY: For one day only, the ice cream shop is going to be selling waffle tacos.

MOE'S SOUTHWEST GRILL posted their taco deal on their Twitter account:

RED ROBIN: According to USA Today, you can get their "Taco Tavern Double" with bottomless steak fries for $6.99. The Taco Tavern Double is a burger that's topped with guacamole, tortilla strips, pepper-jack cheese, salsa, and lettuce.

TACO BELL: The Taco Bell fast food chain is offering a special "National Taco Day Gift Set" for $5 (plus tax). According to,

...[I]t includes the Crunchy Taco, Fiery, Cool Ranch, and Nacho Cheese Doritos® Locos Tacos.

You can also send your friends a "digital gift card" to Taco Bell, so they can treat themselves to a National Taco Day Gift Set. You can get details on how to do that by visiting:

And with a lot of deals and discounts that are offered not just for National Taco Day, but any special occasion, participation may vary. So if you would like to take part in some of these specials, it's best to call your local restaurant or business ahead of time and make sure they're a participating location. You don't want any surprises when you try to get your $6.99 Taco Tavern Double or when you try to pick up a waffle taco for dessert.

Happy National Taco Day - And may you get enough tacos to fill you up and put a smile on your face.
