Crave Taco Week - March 2-8, 2020


I crave tacos. I could very well live on these delish delights.

Who doesn't love tacos? They are fun to eat, the fillings are limitless, and tacos are available almost everywhere. 

The Origin of the taco predates the arrival of the Spanish in Mexico. There is anthropological evidence that the indigenous people living in the lake region of the Valley of Mexico traditionally ate tacos filled with small fish.

Did you know - Over 4.5 billion tacos are sold each year in the United States? That's proof as to how much we crave tacos. 

Taco Tia was opened by Glen Bell in 1954, He also sold hot dogs and burgers. In 1962, Glen Bell made Taco Tia the first Mexican fast food franchise and changed the name to Taco Bell.

The oldest Taco Bell and McDonald’s are located in the same town.

Taco John’s was the first to trademark “Taco Tuesday” 1989, and still has some claim to the phrase.

Be sure to try a taco or two at one of the many establishments in Lexington March 2nd-8th. I have to admit, I may visit each and every restaurant this year! Cheers!
