Anyone that has lived in the Pacific Northwest for any length of time understands the deliciousness that is TacoTime. With 350+ locations in the United States and Canada, and most of those restaurants located in the Pacific Northwest, it’s definitely a local favorite. All through my corporate days we had set Fridays which were lovingly referred to as “TacoTime Friday” and even to this day, my ex coworkers will often message me on Fridays and wish me a happy TTF, which was our version of TGIF.
And now, even though my bosses are under the age of 7 and Fridays don’t really have the same allure as they did when we got the entire weekend off, we still make time every few weeks for a TacoTime run. When we’re traveling and we end up at a subpar taco joint, the family joke is that it’s “a quarter ‘til TacoTime”, or if it’s really bad, it’s “a quarter past TacoTime”. Anyone that loves TacoTime knows how disappointing that truly is.
Then when we get home we have to immediately schedule a trip to TacoTime to rid ourselves of any bad feelings we may have about whatever joint we visited. Maybe it’s the homemade salsa, the Mexi-Fries, or the fact that everything is made fresh, but whatever it is, it’s magical.
