National Taco Day at the Bell

Today is National Taco Day. Tacos are one of America’s favorite ethnic food, loved and eaten by millions each day. The taco is made in many variations including soft or hard shells of a wheat or corn tortilla and filled with a variety of delicious fillings.

According to Wikipedia, the taco predates the arrival of Europeans in Mexico. There is anthropological evidence that the indigenous people living in the lake region of the Valley of Mexico traditionally ate tacos filled with small fish. Writing at the time of the Spanish conquistadors, Bernal Díaz del Castillo documented the first taco feast enjoyed by Europeans, a meal which Hernán Cortés arranged for his captains in Coyoacán. It is not clear why the Spanish used their word, “taco”, to describe this indigenous food.

To honor this day, we paid a visit to the Lawrenceburg’s Taco Bell. We were greeted with big smiles from Dawn Wiley and the manager Christine Downey. Taco Bell came to Lawrenceburg over seven years ago and has become one of Lawrenceburg’s favorite fast food restaurants. Take some time today and get yourself a delicious taco.
