We're Celebrating National Taco Day with a Little Friendly Competition


National Taco Day is Sunday, October 4th, and we're paying tribute to one of our favorite dishes all weekend long in celebration. Each of our culinary teams at each location has prepared their very own taco special that will run only from Friday, October 2nd - Sunday, October 4th, available both for dine-in and To Go on our website!

This year, we're proud to be donating $1 of every taco purchased to the the Restaurant Workers' Community Foundation, a COVID-19 relief fund for service-industry employees.

Here is what each location is serving:
