Margaritas Goes Big for National Taco Day with New Macho Taco

To celebrate National Taco Day on October 4, Margaritas Mexican Restaurant will offer a big twist on the humble Mexican essential, and they call it the Macho Taco. The 22-unit restaurant chain, known for its delicious authentic flavors, colorful decor and sense of humor, will offer the “muy grande” meal for a limited time, from Thursday, October 4through Monday, October 8, 2012.

The edible colossus is hand crafted, made to order and presented in the distinctive tongue-and-cheek Margaritas style. Appearing larger than life, the Macho Taco is made with a crispy 12-inch tortilla shell, and comes stuffed with lettuce, beans, Mexican rice, seasoned chicken, ground beef, pork carnitas, bacon, salsa fresca, cheese and jalapenos. Topped with crema, picante and hacienda sauces, this $8.99 super taco is worthy of its name.

“We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the big day then with a big deal,” said company President Hugo Marin. “And the Macho Taco is a big deal.” He said, smiling.

“The taco is a staple of the Mexican dining experience,” adds Marin. “We offer several unique and delicious variations such as our Carne Asada Tacos and Tacos del Mar. What better way to celebrate National Taco Day than with the Macho Taco? It expresses our dedication to great tasting food, value and fun.”

In that spirit of fun, Margaritas will also sponsor the taco eating contest at this year’s Phantom Gourmet Food Festival on September 30 in downtown Boston.  Tickets for the event are available at all Margaritas Mexican Restaurants.
