Mark Your Calendars, October 4th is National Taco Day!
Time to Celebrate Tacos!
Taco lovers in all parts of the country have so much to look forward to on October 4th — it’s National Taco Day! This Mexican dish is so well-loved by many that people have even made a holiday for it. Then again, considering that we have Taco Tuesdays, it isn’t that surprising!
You might be surprised to learn that tacos have been around since 1,000 BC, although Americans only knew about these delicious treats in 1905. In case you’re wondering how they got their way here, it was all thanks to the owners of San Antonio Chili Queens, who were, of course, Mexican immigrants. They tried their luck by opening a food stall in the River City, and sure enough, their tacos were a hit among the public.
Fast forward to now, millions of Americans eat tacos each year. A recent survey showed that 19 out of every 20 people love their tacos. As for Taco Bell, it has become one of the most popular food chains in the country, with half of the population visiting their local Taco Bell once every 11 days.
