Where to Find Philadelphia's Best Taco Tuesday Deals

If you’ve been eating and drinking here long enough, you know that tacos are as much a part of Philadelphia’s culinary fabric as cheesesteaks, pretzels and roast pork sandwiches. So much, in fact, that the phenomenon of Taco Tuesdays, weekly deals and specials that celebrate the mighty tortilla and all the delicious things you can pile on it, has quietly established itself as a regular feature at bars and restaurants all over the city. Here we’ve rounded up some of out favorite Taco Tuesday options. If you know of one we missed, let us know via Facebook or Twitter.
