Take-out Taco Tuesday

It's a weird time of isolation, "social distancing" (I hate this term, btw) and the prohibition of dining in a restaurant or bar.  Covid-19 would have killed all our restaurants, had our local govt not allowed take out and delivery business. They're still hurting, but hopefully we all can keep them afloat with our take out business. It's a good time to be working for BiteSquad or Door Dash.  I've considered it myself.  I bet those guys are raking it in right now. 

As I posted last week, many franchise restaurants are offering freebies to drive business their way, but I think it's also truly a good faith gesture.

Today, Taco Bell is offering a FREE Dorito taco.  This is today only.  While I think I could have just driven up and asked for the free taco, I have a problem not paying for something.

Viv wanted to try this Dorito taco, so we headed that way. I ordered her something called a "Mountain Dew Baja Blast Freeze" and mentioned that my daughter would like to try the Dorito taco.  The guy taking the order said, "And nothing for you?"  I replied, "Well, I want one, but no."  To this he responded, "but, it's one per person, Dorito, soft taco or crunchy taco."  So, he threw in a crunchy beef freebie for the old mom.

Vivian's take on the Dorito taco?  She loved it.  Apparently, the shell really does taste like the nacho flavored chip.  I must also point out that this child turns 14 in April, and this was her first foray into the world of Taco Bell. I'm sure the novelty of it all made it a really good taco!

Point I'm making, if you want to grab this cool offer, just swing by your neighborhood Taco Bell.  You don't need a coupon but remember it's only for today (March 31). Too bad they don't accept tips; I would have loved to drop some cash on the employees who were working. Instead, we just gave them a sincere thank you and now, I hope I'm giving them some positive free advertising.  Even if you miss out on today's giveaway, remember TB next time you need a quick pickup for dinner, lunch on the road, or just to satisfy a taco craving.

Follow directions, wash your hands, don't go out unless you really need to (like picking up tacos) and stay healthy, everyone.
