It’s Tuesday! And as a girl who grew up in Southern California, I only think of one thing… Tacos! Throw in some margaritas and extremely low prices and you got yourself a traditional So-Cal Taco Tuesday right here in the Valley of the Sun. Yo quiero tacos!
Gallo Blanco Café & Bar
Special: Buy two tacos, get one free!
Located in the funky and hip Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix, Gallo Blanco serves up an array of tasty and creative tacos. You MUST accompany your wrapped-up delight with Gallo’s authentic sangria (even though it’s not discounted on Tuesdays, it’s well worth it)! Margaritas are also flowing daily.
Cien Agaves Tacos & Tequila
Special: $1.50 shredded beef tacos and $2 Tecates all day and night
This Scottsdale Mexican favorite is the place to be on Tuesdays as many call the tacos and margaritas the best thing on the menu. Take your South of the Border fare outside to the patio as the weather heats up!
