Where and when did Taco Tuesday originate?
According to, the restaurant promotion was started in 1982 by Taco John’s, and trademarked (with subsequent bad press) in 1989. The trademark is apparently no longer enforced.
According to, the term was trademarked by Potato Olés, but even here, it’s recognized as being in widespread use already.
