No matter how you like tacos — stuffed or wrapped, crunchy or soft — you can probably enjoy one, if not several, on the cheap this week.

Friday is National Taco Day 2019, and many taco-serving restaurant chains are observing the “holiday” by offering free or discounted tacos.

In most cases, you need to do little more than show up to score these freebies and deals. You might want to call ahead to confirm that locations in your area are participating in the offers, though.
