Tacos are a big deal these days, so much so we've given them their own day! This year National Taco Day is Wednesday, October 4th and some of your favorite taco stands and joints around East Texas are celebrating this handy food!

Whether it's served in a hard shell or soft shell, there's not too many people that will turn away a taco! Your favorite may be filled with ground beef, shredded chicken, pork, shrimp, fish or another favorite protein and topped off with shredded lettuce, cheese, tomato and maybe some kind of salsa! Or it could be filled with your favorite breakfast item, eggs, bacon, sausage and more! Whatever your favorite is, you can celebrate it Wednesday, October 4 and hopefully save a little money at the same time!
