Free apps, free food. The best of both worlds.

In case you didn't know, National Taco Day is Thursday, October 4 and Taco John's in Rockford are getting into the spirit all week.

That's because they're giving away free food to people who download the Taco John's app called TJ Rewards.

Now through next Monday, October 8 Taco John's is hooking up TJ Rewards users with orders of Small Potato Oles and Crispy Beef Tacos.

Taco John's

The tacos are for downloading the app and the potato oles are for using Facebook as your method for signing up.

It's a win-win. Taco John's gets you to download their app, and you reap the rewards. It's like National Taco Day all week in Rockford.

Taco John's has two locations in the Rockford area, 3269 South Alpine Road and 8304 North Second Street in Machesney Park.
