In the U.S. we celebrate National Taco Day annually on Oct. 4. It first hit the food holiday calendar in 2009, and lore tells us that restaurant chain Del Taco is its originator. The event brings the promise of free and cheap tacos. Now if only it could coincide with National Guacamole Day or National Margarita Day for a real rager.

While most restaurants haven’t announced their deals for National Taco Day 2024, there are plenty of restaurants you can expect to drop free tacos. For example, for the past two years, Taco Bell has released their $10 Taco Lover’s Pass which gave customers free tacos for 30 days. We’ll show you exactly what you can expect from National Taco Day in 2024.
