In my house Tuesday is for tacos and this Tuesday is the best one of all because it’s also, Cinco de Mayo. That’s right friends, we may have to stay home but but Cinco de Mayo has landed on Taco Tuesday and that’s cause for celebration!
We’ve gathered up the local places where you can get your Taco Tuesday fix for local pick-up, delivery, or curbside pick-up. It’s not an exhaustive list, but it is focused on local, independently owned taquerias. Listed in Alphabetical order by city.
