I feel with the number of tacos I consume that National Taco Day should be tomorrow since it's also my birthday, but it is, in fact, today October 4th.

I'm such a taco lover that I also enjoy a good taco pizza every now and then too. And per the National Day Calendar, that is a totally expectable way to participate today as well.

Rockford is blessed to have a ton of amazing places to go and grab tacos to celebrate with.
