2017 has shown its share of disasters and Urban Taco in Uptown wishes to help out in a way they only could imagine: with tacos. Urban Taco will be selling their tacos for $4 on October 4th to celebrate National Taco Day. In conjunction with this promotion (for each taco sold) $2 of the proceeds will be donated to Fundacion Carlos Slim in Mexico, to assist in earthquake disaster relief.

Co-owner Markus Pineyro  will be visiting a branch of the Fundacion
in Mexico, and will also be matching 5 pesos for every peso donated.

Urban Taco – 3411 McKinney Avenue location ALL DAY/NIGHT during regular business hours on Oct 4th.
