National Taco Day: How to Get Free Food this Weekend


Sunday, Oct. 4 is National Taco Day, and considering everything else that has happened this year, at least this is one thing worth celebrating! Whether you’re a taco or a burrito fan, there are freebies available for everyone.

Here are some of the best freebies and deals available on National Taco Bell this weekend.

Taco Bell

Taco Bell will be launching a new taco e-gifting option via their website and app called the “Taco Gifter.” If you make use of this option, you can gift your taco-loving friends and family with a free taco.

However, this seems to be limited to 10,000 free tacos total, so you might want to act quicky.

On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina

On the Border will have $2 deals for their chicken and beef tacos all day long. Not only that, but they will also have $4 select specialty tacos available.

The $4 tacos will include brisket or Southwest chicken, while some of the $2 options will offer seasoned ground beef or chicken tinga.

Moe’s Southwest Grill

Moe’s Rewards loyalty members will be able to take $5 off their Taco Meal Kit on National Taco Day. The kit includes a choice of two proteins, tortillas, rice, beans, queso, lettuce, pico de gallo, sour cream, cheese, and chips. I don’t know about you, but I’m suddenly feeling very hungry.

Not only does the kit come with a variety of food options, but it also includes a very convenient recipe for enchiladas so none of the leftovers go to waste.

Jack in the Box

You might not think of Jack in the Box as a prime go-to location for tacos, but hey, they’ve still got you covered.

Any app purchase on Oct. 4 from Jack in the Box can net you two free tacos. Yes, not only one free taco—but TWO free tacos.

Del Taco

Considering this restaurant literally has the word taco in its name, of course they’re going to be offering free tacos on National Taco Day.

Starting on Sunday, you can get free tacos every Saturday during “Tacoberfest,” which will run from Oct. 3 until Oct 4.

In order to get the free taco, you should use a coupon available in the Del Taco app which will give you the freebie along with any other purchase.

These are only a few examples of free tacos available on National Taco Day. If your favorite local taco establishment isn’t listed above, fear not. They most likely will be participating, so you need only call or check their social media or website to find out more details.
