Taco Bell says the moon is going to look like a giant taco tonight and wants to celebrate the occasion with some free food.

The chain is dubbing Tuesday’s waning crescent the “Taco Moon” — and offering free tacos at participating stores across the nation.

Just pop into a Taco Bell between 8 and 11:59 p.m. Tuesday to claim a free crunchy beef taco, the company said.

Busy that night? You can get a free taco anytime that day when you order for pickup through or the chain’s app. You’ll have to register for a Taco Bell account if you haven’t already.

Taco Bell recommends contacting your local restaurant for availability and hours of operation.

The offer isn’t available for delivery and excludes Doritos Locos Tacos.

Taco Bell has been shuffling its menu in the past few months since announcing last year it’d be slashing some well-loved items from its menu.

In March, the chain brought back the Quesalupa for a limited run, and in February, it announced it’d be joining the chicken sandwich wars with the nationwide release of the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco sometime in 2021.

Taco Bell has also permanently brought back its AVA-certified vegan potatoes as a bean substitute and on two dishes: The Spicy Potato Soft Taco and Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes.
