Don’t spend more than a dollar per taco on National Taco Day

It’s National Taco Day. Why do we celebrate it? Well here’s why.

Many many years ago, a baby by the name of Jesus who was less than a year old was sitting in a manger with his parents, Mary and Joseph. That October afternoon, three Kings who met the baby back in December traveled from far away to present baby Jesus with more gifts: an al pastor taco, a lengua taco and a barbacoa taco. Word spread throughout Jerusalem of these great gifts and from that day, October 4 was known as National Taco Day.

Dollar tacos are the best tacos

OK, I completely made that up but any reason is a good reason to celebrate this

historic foodie holiday. With the big day finally upon us, many local restaurants are offering big deals to entice people to come in and celebrate with them. I’ve glanced over the deals and believe nobody should be paying more than a dollar for a taco today.

Here’s where to get your fix for a dollar or less at local places. There are other places that have taco deals but why not support local?

La Hacienda (1138 N Nelson Dr, Derby, KS)
$1 tacos all day.

Casa Martinez (201 W. Greenway, Derby, KS)
$6.99 all you can eat tacos. Eat 7 and you’re set.

Las Palmas (119 W. Central, Andover, KS)
$1 street tacos all day.

Los Compadres (3302 W. Central, Wichita, KS)
$1 street tacos all day.

Tacos Lopez (795 N West St, Wichita, KS)
75 cent mini tacos all day.

Taco Fajita (1004 S. Meridian Ave, Wichita, KS)
75 cent mini tacos all day. During the week it’s always a dollar

El Pollo Dorado al Carbon de Wichita (128 W 21st St & 2117 E Central, Wichita, KS)

Casa Del Charro (2227 N Arkansas, Wichita, KS)

There are some other restaurants out there offering for $1.50 on up like Molino’s, Douglas Street Tacos and District Taqueria but if you’re sweet spot is a dollar a less, this list should get you your fill.
