    What to Know

    • Friday, Oct. 4

    • Del Taco will offer a free Del Taco and Beyond Taco with any purchase

    • On the Border has endless tacos for $8.99

    As gifts from the grub-based side of life's grand buffet go, the taco is the perfect present.

    It has its own wrapping paper, a tortilla, soft or hard, and you can eat it. It has good things found inside of its wrapping, also edible, and those tasty bits can run the gourmet gamut, from carne asada to chicken to spicy squash to cheesy nums.

    And this gift? It's a gift you can give yourself, at any time of the day, including breakfast, when those aforementioned cheesy nums are usually melted into eggs.

    Oct. 4 is, then, one of the giftiest days of the year, as far as the cuisine calendar is concerned. No guessing required: It's National Taco Day, and finding flavor-packed shells or soft corny wraps won't be too difficult.
