Taco Deals on 17th Ave

Does anyone else struggle to get through an entire Tuesday without thinking about tacos? The two have really become synonymous with each other, so it makes sense that by Monday’s end, you already have tacos on the brain. Lucky for you, the government has lifted some of the restrictions on outdoor dining, and just in time for all the different taco deals on 17th Ave! Hunker down at one of these Red Mile patios and indulge in half-priced drink specials, tequila, and of course, your chosen taco flavour piled high with spiced meats, salsa, guac and more.
