Celebrate National Taco Day 2018

In case you haven’t notice, “Taco” is literally our middle name. It’s kinda our thing. So when its time to celebrate the National Taco Day, you can bet your Baja that we’re in.

National Taco Day has been celebrated every October 4th since 2009. And this year, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop will offer $1 tacos all day on Thursday, October 4th as we celebrate National Taco Day.
 
Dine-in guests at participating restaurants can enjoy an endless amount of $1 tacos, from breakfast tacos to signature Baja-style tacos, from open to close. The choice of tacos even includes Fuzzy’s Taco Shop’s original Baja fish taco, served on a corn tortilla with cilantro, lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese and a hint of garlic sauce.

The National Taco Day offer excludes California Heat, Shrimp and Fajita tacos, but is valid for 13 other fold-over favorites on the menu that include shredded chicken, shredded brisket, special ground beef, spicy pork, tempura fish, grilled fish, bacon, chorizo and even grilled veggies.

Americans consumed nearly 4.5 billion tacos last year alone. That’s 490,000 miles of tacos, which could take you to the moon and back. It could weigh up to 775 million pounds, or two Empire State Buildings. Regardless, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop has accepted the challenge to help increase that number this year with one of the best National Taco Day deals in the country.

The book Planet Taco: A Global History of Mexican Food, by University of Minnesota history professor Jeffery M. Pilcher, traces the origin of tacos back to the silver mines in Mexico during the 18th century. The word “taco” referred to the little pieces of paper wrapped around gunpowder that were used to excavate ore. Another theory is that the word were a derivative of the indigenous Nahautl tribal word “tlacho,” which means “in the middle.”

The first mention of tacos as food in the US was in a 1905 newspaper story about “Chili Queens.” These women served tacos out of pushcarts in places like Los Angeles and San Antonio to the Mexican immigrants who were part of the new working class. Tourists in those same areas began trying the tasty new ethnic food, and tacos quickly became local favorites. The first taco truck is believed to have been started by two housewives in New York City around 1966.
Now put down your taco history book, and set your flip phone for Thursday, October 4th and the best National Taco Day deal around.
