And from Taco Cabana representatives:
In honor of National Taco Day, Taco Cabana is giving away FREE chicken fajita tacos on Tuesday, October 4th, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.* I thought this free giveaway would be fun (and tasty) for your readers. Please feel free to pass it along so we can break our record of 118,101 tacos given away during our last chicken fajita taco giveaway.

Anyone can visit their favorite Taco Cabana from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. to enjoy one free chicken fajita taco. The delicious taco is made with 100% white meat chicken wrapped in a freshly made flour tortilla.

I should also mention that the taco giveaway overlaps with Taco Cabana’s Happy Hour (4:00 – 7:00 p.m.) so it’s a perfect opportunity to sit on the patio with nacho and drink specials.

Please let me know if you have any questions and we look forward to celebrating National Taco Day with you! Thanks!
