Danny Trejo Is Giving Away Golden Tickets Worth Free Tacos All October Long This Friday

By Malia Wooten

I guess we can consider him our local Danny Wonka!

Tomorrow is #NationalTacoDay and instead of awarding kids a trip to a mystical chocolate factory, Danny Trejo is gifting lucky Angelenos free tacos for the entire month of October! This Friday on October 5, the actor-turned-restaurant owner is giving away one golden ticket at each Trejo’s Tacos location (not counting the LAX cantina) which will be good for one free taco a day through November 1.

One winner will be chosen at random from each restaurant including the Hollywood, Pasadena, La Brea, Original Farmers Market, Woodland Hills, and USC Village posts. Don’t forget to check under your plate after you’ve ordered, because that’s where you’ll find the golden ticket! If chosen amongst the lucky few, you’ll be able to stop by any Trejos location for a free taco every day for the remainder of the month.

Don’t feel like leaving your couch to participate? No worries, you can partake in the National Taco Day fun with $3 carnitas and jackfruit tacos via the Postmates delivery app until October 6.

Good luck – may the best taco lovers win!
