If you’re a fan of authentic Mexican cuisine, you’ve probably heard of—and celebrated—the nationwide phenomenon known as “Taco Tuesday.” Millions of people have spent their Tuesdays flocking to Mexican restaurants and food chains to gobble up Taco Tuesday deals, where their favorite tacos are discounted for this special weekly event.
Even the best Mexican restaurants offer deals on their tacos in Key West, FL and across the United States. And now, Old Town Mexican Café is offering taco deals all day long!
Where Taco Tuesday comes from
But where did this Taco Tuesday craze come from? Which person or company invented the term that started a weekly taco craze? We did some digging, and here’s the origin story that started it all.
The term “Taco Tuesday” was originally trademarked by a Mexican fast food chain called Taco John’s, based in Cheyenne, Wyoming, in 1989. The chain currently holds the trademark in 49 states, with the outlier being New Jersey, where it is held by Gregory’s Hotel in Somers Point.
The term quickly became extremely popular and almost resulted in a lawsuit in which Taco John’s attempted to enforce their trademark against a smaller restaurant in Oklahoma that tried to use it, too. However, the larger chain suing the smaller one resulted in bad press for Taco John’s, and they backed down. Eventually, the term became so widely used that Taco John’s gave up attempting to assert their trademark.
Many restaurants and other pop culture icons use the term “Taco Tuesday” without getting sued. And so, we now have a great reason to eat tacos in Key West, FL at least once a week!
