From soft shell supporters to breakfast taco buffs, Yelp is helping taco fans find the best spots for their favorite Mexican staple. In honor of National Taco Day on October 4th, Yelp is kicking off its search for its first-ever Taco Trailblazer to go on a tour of the United States. The Taco Trailblazer will be awarded $20,000 to blaze the Yelp Taco Trail and visit top-rated spots.
Throughout a four-month journey, Yelp’s Taco Trailblazer will create three videos per month and a total of three blog posts about their experience at each taco spot.
To apply, taco fans should submit a 30-60 second video at TacoTrailblazer.Yelp.com explaining why they’re qualified to tour the taco trail. Applicants will also be asked to create a Yelp collection of their favorite taco-serving businesses. See Yelp’s Support Page for steps on how to create a collection.
The trail consists of the Top 100 Taco Spots across the country. Topping the list is Fernandez Restaurant in San Diego, CA, where Yelpers rave about the birria tacos. Whether you are craving fish tacos (try no. 2 Taco Nazo in Bellflower, CA) or breakfast tacos (no. 4 Granny’s Tacos in Austin, TX), there’s a place on the trail for every possible taco filling.
*No purchase necessary. Must be 21+ and a U.S. resident. Participants can apply for the role between September 22, 2022 to October 4, 2022. One winner will be selected on or about October 19th. Winner must enter into an independent contractor agreement with Yelp. See the official rules available at tacotrailblazer.yelp.com.
