So much so that last year alone, Americans consumed more than 4.5 billion tacos. According to NationalTacoDay.com, that equates to "490,000 miles of tacos, which could take you to the moon and back or if you prefer, could, at 775-million pounds, equal the weight of two Empire State Buildings.”

During Newswatch 16 This Morning, the restaurant in Lycoming County offered first responders free tacos who are in uniform. Plus, tips on how to maximize your taco making and eating skills. Real Taste Taqueria is also offering a BOGO deal today (buy one get one) on their "American Taco."
