Free Taco Tour Bus Launches Tomorrow

By Megan Giller  |  March 7, 2014

SXSW’ers, there’s much more to Austin than downtown. Namely, more delicious places to eat tacos. Local marketing company Tocquigny wants to take you to those places for free with its taco tour bus for SXSW.

Starting tomorrow, March 8, through Monday, March 10, the taco bus will pick you up downtown at West Fifth St. and Colorado, give you free beer and shuttle you to eat Austin’s official food. On Saturday they’re going to Tacodeli (try the doña sauce), on Sunday it’s Torchy’s Tacos (queso all around) and on Monday it’s Maria’s Taco Xpress (behold the impressive sculpture atop the building). The bus leaves at 11 AM, 12:30 PM and 2 PM and returns you full and safe an hour and a half later in the same spot.

Note that this is open to everyone, not just badge holders, but only the ride and the beer are free; you’ll have to take out your wallet for the tacos. But in our opinion, that’s a small price to pay for some quality taco time.
