When is the National Taco Day?

National Taco Day is Oct. 4. (Not to be confused with National Soft Taco Day, which is Oct. 3). Below, some deals to get you in on the taco shell-ebration.

Chuy’s pretty much lives for Taco Day. The quirky Tex-Mex restaurant is celebrating by offering crispy beef tacos for a buck, giving out free tacos to anyone who knows the secret Taco Day catchphrase (check the Chuy’s Facebook page) and, if you come in dressed like a taco, rewarding you with a free entrée of your choosing. 10667 Westminster Blvd., Westminster, 303-469-9441; chuys.com.

Platt Park’s Que Bueno Suerte! is running a buy-one, get-one free Taco Day deal. Will the Barbacoa de Borrego (lamb neck and cheek, radish, cilantro and onion salad) be your buy-one or your get-one? 1518 S. Pearl St., Denver, 720-642-7322; qbsuerte.com. Read more at The Know.
