    FYI, On the Border does their taco deal every Tuesday where we live. You might ask to make sure in your area. They are pretty yummy and the best deal in town!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How cool! Good to know yours offers it each Tuesday! Thanks so much for sharing with us, Peggy! ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ™Œ

    We only have taco bell. Bummer.

    • AMANDA FLOWERS

      Same here, OH.

    We had del taco on Sunday. It was close to the most horrible meal I have ever had. Stale taco shells, cold fries. Their fish taco was pretty ok though.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Sorry to hear you had a bad experience at Del Taco. Hoping you might have better luck at one of the other options listed above. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’ž
