Foodie Friday: Where To Celebrate National Taco Day


There is no shortage of places to celebrate National Taco Day on Sunday October 4th.  You could basically have tacos for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert…and snack too!  We are the city of tacos; you can find some really cheap amazing tacos and some really expensive not so great tacos.  No matter your taste preference, we’ve got you covered with a bunch of places around town to feed your taco cravings!

Ricky’s Tacos And Beer in Old Town Scottsdale knows how to sling out good tacos on the perfect tortilla with award winning salsa.


Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon – Poolside, I mean, the picture really does say it all.  How could you not enjoy National Taco Day at the pool with some tacos and maybe a drink out of a pineapple?


Diego Pops has their braised pineapple pork tacos and adobo bbq chicken, need I say more?


Taco Guild is that place you drive by that looks like a church but it’s filled with the delightful smells of Mexican cuisine.  Inside you’ll be amazed at how beautiful the architecture is, and you’ll be amazed at how fast the tacos on your plate end up in your stomach.


Gadzooks – I know, it’s a picture of enchiladas and a meat taco for the little one.  We ate these on Wednesday but they have tacos full of whatever you want on them too and they are equally as amazing.  I’m a new fan of Gadzooks, and I particularly like their short rib tacos.  My four year old son had us order another round of tacos for him…kid approved!


True Food Kitchen – maybe not the place you would think of for tacos, but the grass-fed steak tacos are out of this world.


SOL Cocina has got you covered for all your taco and margarita needs.  They are a solid staple for your Mexican fiesta up at The Quarter in Scottsdale.


Joyride Taco House has a few locations for you to get your fix and plenty of tacos to choose from.


Sierra Bonita has a taco lunch special that will forever hold a special place in my heart.  Crispy pork street tacos are a perfect palate pleaser.


SumoMaya has the atmosphere, the drinks, the food and the tacos!


Tias Taco Truck serves up some seriously fresh tacos.  You can find them at their truck or in Gilbert or Mesa at their restaurants.
