Guacamole lovers, rejoice: July 31 is National Avocado Day, and for one day only, you can score your favorite side for free or at a discount.
Americans consume 7.13 pounds of avocado per person per year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. If you’re not enjoying homemade avocado toast, eat your way toward that average by taking advantage of the following deals.
Get free guac at Chipotle when you order online or through the app. El Pollo Loco is offering free chips and guacamole to customers who order a regular-priced Family Dinner online. Both Tijuana Flats and Rubio’s Coastal Grill are offering free chips and guacamole with any order.
Carl’s Jr. is offering its new guacamole double cheeseburger for $2.99 on National Avocado Day only.
Qdoba offers free guacamole every day at participating locations. However, it’s still commemorating National Avocado Day by hosting a Change.org petition to encourage other restaurants to stop charging extra for guacamole.
“… We won’t be satisfied until extra guacamole is free of charge for people everywhere,” the text of the petition reads. “So today, we’re calling on all of our Mexican eats competitors – you know who you are – to come together, just this once, around a common goal: to make guacamole free of charge, not just for one day, but everyday.”
