WHAT: Save The Tacos Contest! For a limited time, 12 participating restaurants have created and added a specialty taco to their menu to compete for the title of ‘Arlington’s Favorite Taco’.
WHERE: Arlington, Texas (participating restaurants)
WHEN: August 20 through September 20, 2022
DETAILS: What is #SaveTheTacos? According to U.S. Travel Association, almost a billion hours of unused vacation time are wasted each year - that’s concerts unheard, memories unmade, and tacos never savored. The Arlington CVB is on a mission to #SaveTheTacos by reminding people to use their well-deserved PTO time and enjoy all the tacos that would otherwise go uneaten. Who has Arlington’s Favorite Taco? For a limited time, Arlington restaurants are throwing down the gauntlet and competing to be crowned Arlington’s Favorite Taco! This is no small task and that’s where the public comes in to #SaveTheTacos*!
We are looking for out-of-the-box-unconventional-taco connoisseur tastebuds to decide who the title should be bestowed to.
EAT great tacos.
VOTE for the favorite HERE.
From August 20 through September 30:
- Visit 6 of the participating restaurants and be entered to win a $50 VISA gift card.
- But a REAL taco connoisseur doesn’t half-taco anything. Visit all 12 participating restaurants and receive a taco prize pack (*$12 value), PLUS be entered to win an ultimate weekend in Arlington!
The challengers are:
- Damian’s Cajun Soul Café
- J. Gilligan’s Bar & Grill
- Hayter’s Bar and Lounge
- Hershey’s Palace Pizza Wangs and Thangs
- MillsMade Barbecue
- Prince Lebanese Grill
- Roadrun’r Exotic Cereal Bar
