Today, October 4, is National Taco Day. Like all made-up food-related holidays, that means you can score some great discounts on tacos today from a pretty wide range of places.
We’ve rounded up some of the best deals from national chains, but if you have a local favorite in your town it’s always worth checking to see if they have a bargain going on as well. And if you know about a superior deal that we missed, let us know in the comments.

Taco Bell will be offering “gift sets” in honor of National Taco Day. The packs will include four tacos: two crunchy and two nacho cheese. It’s also offering a way for you to send a digital gift card for $5+tax to a friend in honor of the day to cover the cost of their taco gift set.


Applebees locations in Florida, Georgia, New Jersey and New York that are owned by Doherty Enterprises will be offering the Chicken Wonton Taco appetizer for $1 for National Taco Day.
