What's better than Taco Tuesday? Taco Everyday. And that's what's happening Oct. 12-18 during 2020 Cincinnati Taco Week.

The third-annual Taco Week will feature $2 specialty tacos from participating restaurants — some will even have three different unique Taco Week options — plus a special passport to guide you to taco nirvana. Get your passport stamped for each order of tacos. Earn a stamp from 5 or more participating locations and be entered to win the grand prize of $250 in gift cards and local Karrikin Spirits swag.

Nothing goes better with tacos than a margarita. And since CityBeat's Margarita Madness party has been postponed until 2021, the event will be joining this year's Taco Week as restaurants compete to see who has the best margarita in Cincinnati. That's right, Margarita Madness is now a part of Cincinnati Taco Week.

This year, consumers will be able to enjoy tacos and margarita specials all week long and vote for their favorite margarita to be crowned “Best Margarita.”

All competition participants will be using Taco Week sponsor Karrikin Blaze Agave Spirit as their tequila base, so all cocktails will start with a level playing field.

Participating restaurants include: Agave & Rye Covington, Agave & Rye Rookwood, Agave & Rye Liberty, Bakersfield, El Taco Veloz, El Vaquero Mason, El Vaquero Blue Ash, Frida 602, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, Habanero, The Hearth at Karrikin, La Jaiba Seafood & Taqueria, Lalo, Los Potrillos, Lucius Q, Mazunte Taqueria, Mazunte Centro, Mazunte Catering and Mercado, Trifecta at Miami Valley Gaming, Mi Taco Loco, Sammy’s, Sugar n' Spice, Sugar n' Spice OTR, Taqueria El Monarca, Tortilleria Garcia, Tortilleria Garcia College Hill, Veracruz Mexican and Wishbone Tavern.
