Let’s “taco” ‘bout Taco Tuesday. Here’s where to celebrate in Seattle (the more, the better, right?).

Cactus | Multiple locations

Happy hour in the Cactus bar goes down every weekday from 3-6 p.m., so get over to any of the restaurant’s three Seattle locations (in South Lake Union, Alki Beach, and Madison Park) or to its two Eastside locations (Bellevue Square and Kirkland) for some small bite delights. Ring in your next Taco Tuesday with three Mexico City Street Tacos (your choice of chorizo, carnitas, or spicy potato rajas) or Spicy Ahi Tacos (done up poke-style with red onion, smoked fresno aioli, and avocado), plus your favorite happy hour cocktail to top it all off (a round of classic margaritas or Moscow Mules, anyone?).

Los Chilangos | 14008 NE 8th Street, Bellevue | 425-221-7623

The colorful Los Chilangos taco truck is parked at 140th and 8th in Bellevue on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. if you want to keep the party going past Tuesday). Drop by the pickup window for three street tacos with your choice of chicken, carne asada, carnitas, or al pastor on a corn tortilla topped with cilantro, onions, and salsa. Comes with chips and optional rice and beans.

Peso's Kitchen & Lounge | 605 Queen Anne Ave N | 206-283-9353

Where does Lower Queen Anne go on a Tuesday that demands some spicy celebration? It’s gotta be Peso’s, where a special Taco Tuesday menu offers $5 appetizers and $7 margaritas from 4 to 11 p.m. Each taco is served on a handmade corn tortilla with cabbage, radish, and pico de gallo, plus your choice of shredded chicken tinga, beef picadillo, chorizo sausage, or mushroom-corn rajas.

Señor Moose | 5242 Leary Ave NW | 206-784-5568

Pair a $5 taco (or two… or four) with a $5 margarita or cerveza. Weekday happy hour runs Monday through Thursday from 4:30 to 6 p.m., but everyone knows tacos taste even better on Tuesdays. Order yours filled with tinga (shredded chicken), machaca (shredded beef), or camote, panela y pepitas (vegetarian sweet potato), and don’t forget a side of housemade guacamole.
