5 Best Places for a Taco Tuesday Happy Hour in Phoenix

Most days would only be complete with tacos somewhere during the process. On Tuesdays, this is especially true, because the day has become synonymous with the word “taco”. Without tacos, you might as well start the day all over, right? Don’t worry, though. You won’t have to do that — as long as you heed our catered list of places that remember the golden rule: Tuesday is for tacos.

Tacos Calafia

825 N 7th St Suite 102, Phoenix, AZ 85006

First on our list is a place where the micheladas flow freely and the service is stellar. Welcome to Tacos Calafia, and might we suggest the two-for-one margaritas at happy hour? On Tuesdays, you’ll also be treated to 20 percent off your tacos — and if you don’t grab some tacos al pastor, complete with pineapple on top, you’re missing out. You don’t want a bad case of FOMO, do you?

Joyride Taco House

5202 N Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85012

While their normal weekday Happy Hour lasts from 2 to 6 p.m., Joyride is known especially for their Happy Hour on Tuesday — which lasts from 2 p.m. all the way to closing time! Try $2.50 tacos all the way around (add a dollar for seafood tacos), with $6 margaritas to boot. If you’re hungry, or thirsty, this is the place you need to be. Try their Chipotle Shrimp Taco or their taco called, “The Standard”, complete with slow roasted chicken, avocado, mexican slaw, pico gringo, cilantro, and aji amarillo. Is your mouth watering? We thought so.

REVOLU modern taqueria + bar

5538 N 7th St Suite 100, Phoenix, AZ 85014

This taco joint in Uptown Phoenix features handcrafted Mexican street fare and beverages like the tequila- and mezcal-inspired Oaxacan Old Fashioned. Their most popular creations, though, are their tacos. Starting at only $3 on Taco Tuesdays, you can go crazy with a Potato Head or Nashville Hot Chicken taco, or stay traditional with something like Carne Asada or their Pork Carnitas taco. Either way, you’ll have made the right decision, because you’ll have come to REVOLU.

Tacos Huicho

1941 E Oak St, Phoenix, AZ 85006

Where can you get dollar tacos, you ask? You’re in luck. There’s one such spot in Phoenix called Tacos Huicho. While their menu sports delicious, cheap tacos on most days, on Tuesdays you can get tacos al pastor, or those with pollo, cabeza, or langaniza, all for just $1.25 per taco!

Rubio’s Coastal Grill

4340 E Indian School Rd Suite 1, Phoenix, AZ 85018

If you’re looking for something that hits the spot but still feels good for your body, you can’t go wrong with the seafood tacos at Rubio’s. This chain of coastal inspired cuisine brings the best of Mexican ocean fare to your plate. Pay $7.99 for the Shrimp Trio, a taco plate with three different types, or just get yourself The Original Fish Taco, a battered-and-fried entree that costs only $1.99 a pop!
