At Tequila Sunrise Mexican Grill, we take National Taco Day seriously, by offering seriously good Mexican food specials (on Taco Day and every other day of the week). If you’re an avid celebrator of Taco Tuesdays then National Taco Day is going to be your new favorite day of the year.

Sometimes celebrating national food holidays can seem a bit arbitrary, but National Taco Day actually has some interesting history to it. With the holiday being right around the corner on October 4th, we thought it would be a good idea to dive into the history of the holiday and give you some ideas of how you can celebrate the day.

The History of National Taco Day

With Mexico being a bordering country to the United States, it was fairly easy for Mexican food to make an impact on American taste buds. In the 1960s, a journalist living in San Antonio, Texas, had such a passion for Mexican food that he believed there needed to be more awareness around this cuisine across America. In order to create more awareness, this journalist established the National Taco Council of the United States.

To celebrate the day the council was established, he decided to send President Johnson a 55-pound taco as a marketing stunt to commemorate the day. This resulted in a few Mexican food restaurants taking notice and coming up with their own ways of celebrating the day to raise awareness for their cuisine.

Fast forward to the 21st century and October 4th has officially been declared National Taco Day in the U.S. where Mexican food restaurants offer a variety of Taco specials for their patrons to celebrate the day.
