It may not be Taco Tuesday, but local restaurants around Knoxville are offering specials and deals for National Taco Day on October 4. Each box comes with one Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco, Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco, Fiery Doritos Locos Taco and a Crunchy Taco nestled in a limited edition wrapper.

In honor of National Taco Day, we thought it might be fun to scour the Internet for some of the tastiest taco trivia we could find.

4 - is the day we celebrate one of America's favorite Mexican imports - the taco.

Taco Cabana: From 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, get 50 percent off a chicken fajita taco at participating locations. You can still score a $1 crispy beef taco with your order or get $1 off Mexican beer. While this "deal" may not seem great, Tijauna Flats has been highly teasing the day on social media with the hashtag #Atacolypse, so more deals may be in the works. The loveable animated digital short features beloved characters, including Chef Glen, inspired by Taco Bell's founder Glen Bell, and will tell the story of National Taco Day's origin according to Taco Bell. At the Clifton or Linden restaurant, the first five guests to eat a four-pound taco in less than 30 minutes at each restaurant will win a gift certificate for free tacos for one year.

California Tortilla: Buy one taco, get one free Wednesday.

Hot Head Burritos: Buy two tacos, get one free all day.
