While they might not have a specific National Taco Day promo, Tocador has happy hour every day from opening to 6 pm. And for 8 bucks, you can get two delicious tacos – including beef pasilla, cochinita pibil (roasted pork), black bean, and cauliflower. Our suggestion? Pair your two after-work treats with a guava spritz, which is $9 during happy hour.

Where: 2610 Main Street

If you’re looking for an award-winning spot to sample some delicious tacos and authentic Mexican street food, Chancho’s is for you. Their tortillas are made fresh daily, using corn from small, independent farms in Mexico. Plus, their daily happy hour chilaquiles and tortas ($9-$10) make for a great mid-day treat!

Tacos are priced by the pound, so you’ll want to check out their protein and filling options before you go!

The new Gringo location in Davie Village is finally open, and you know what that means. Tons of tasty corn tortilla tacos ranging from $3 to $4.25 each, loaded burritos, bowls, and quesadillas, and of course, their iconic $3x In The Alley booze buckets. If it’s affordable and delicious fun you’re after, you can’t go wrong with Gringo’s. We went with the new Davie Street spot, but the OG location in Blood Alley Square is always an option too.

And last but not least, we have Sal y Limon – a classic Mexican fare hub with multiple locations. In addition to spicy margs, palomas, and Mexican cola – they also serve the best homemade horchata that we’ve tried in the city. Their flour tortilla tacos are to die for and at just $3.50 to $3.75 a pop, they’re pretty great for your wallet too.
