Taco Tuesday is a custom in many US cities of going out to eat tacos or in some cases select Mexican dishes typically served in a tortilla on Tuesday nights. Restaurants will often offer special prices, for example, "$1 fish tacos every Tuesday night".[1] It is popular in many big cities across the nation and especially popular in the beach cities of Southern California.[2][3] Taco Tuesday is similar to Happy Hour in that restaurants vary in their participation, hours, and specials offered.

Taco John’s was granted a trademark for "Taco Tuesday" in 1989, and has defended against other restaurants using that phrase (except in New Jersey, where another restaurant trademarked it in 1982).[4]
