OK, OK, that’s not a taco. That’s one of the dishes Bey and Jay-Z ate at The Munch Factory when they were in town for OTR II. But for real, The Munch Factory is celebrating National Taco Day, too. And they’re doing it in a unique way: with special BBQ rib tacos, a creation from the owner’s son. The tacos include pulled BBQ rib meat, homemade slaw and avocado in a grilled corn tortilla shell. And they’re offering $5 margaritas all day! Full details
