(WIAT) — It’s Taco Tuesday, which is perfect timing for National Taco Day!

Tacos predate the arrival of Europeans in Mexico and the first recorded taco feast happened around the time of the Spanish conquistadors.

A National Taco Council was founded in 1964. Three years later, the council sent President Lyndon B. Johnson a 55 pound taco.

On Tuesday, many restaurants will offer specials featuring the taco.
