Today's taco the town: Two free tacos at Jack in the Box

Back in 1951, a man named Robert O. Peterson (not Jack) unleashed the country's first Jack in the Box in San Diego, on the main east-west artery leading into the city. The Box had a drive-thru window, an intercom and that freakshow clown on the roof whose bobbing head on a spring warped the innocent, impressionable minds of children everywhere. (Okay, I'm making that last part up, but there's no denying that clown caused nightmares.)

Anyway...over the years, Jack in the Box fell out of favor, but as I'm sure you've all noticed, there's now a preponderance of the fast-food outlets all over the state, which is great news for those of you in search of free tacos. Because that's exactly what Jack is pimping for the duration of the day. That's right: From this very second until 11:59 p.m. tonight, your corner Jack in the Box will give you two free tacos.

Here's s the catch: There is no catch. It's beautifully simple: Cruise through the drive-thru, politely ask for your two free tacos, accept them gratefully -- and then scarf them down the parking lot.

You do need a coupon, however, which I've supplied you with up top. If that coupon isn't to your liking, click here for one that is.
