Tacos are just about the perfect food. How can you not love them? They've got all the food groups, and they come in so many varieties anyone can find one they like. Al pastor and steak for the carnivores, fish for the pescetarians, beans for the vegetarians. Perfect.

While they're good every day of the week, they're particularly good on Tuesdays. That's when restaurants feature the hand-held packets of deliciousness at discounted prices. Below are some of our favorites!
