Taking a stand in support of Taco Bell to liberate the phrase “Taco Tuesday,”TacoTuesday.com agrees that tacos have the unique ability to bring people together and bring joy to their lives on an otherwise mediocre day of the week.
At TacoTuesday.com we want to share a small collection of advertisements throughout the decades of people and restaurants celebrating Taco Tuesday. These ads are long before the Taco John’s trademark.
Keep in mind that currently there are nearly 100,000 restaurants in the United States that celebrate Taco Tuesday and 13% of Americans celebrate it every week in all states, which equates to well over 30 million people who enjoy Taco Tuesday weekly.
