It’s Taco Day every day with new Taco Week promotion

The last themed food week of 2020 organized by the Miami Valley Restaurant Association is upon us, and it highlights one of the most perfect dishes — the mighty taco.

“We decided to do Taco Week because there are so many fun and delicious varieties of tacos. People really enjoy tacos and our restaurants come up with some creative ways to enjoy tacos,” MVRA president Amy Zahora said. “These themed weeks have really helped the restaurants increase business during the week and touch new customers.”
