Danny Trejo Goes Full Willy Wonka This Friday, Giving Out “Golden Tickets” For Free Tacos

Danny Trejo is celebrating National Taco Day with a very Willy Wonka-esque affair: golden tickets at nearly all of his taco shops.

Proclaiming himself “Danny Wonka” for the occasion, the actor with a line of casual taco cantinas (and hopefully zero Oompa Loompas) won’t be opening the doors to some treacherous taco kingdom, but he will be giving out free tacos every day for the remainder of October to a few lucky customers.

On Friday, October 4 only, dine at any Trejo’s Tacos location—with the exception of LAX and his Hollywood doughnut shop—and you could snag one of these specially printed passes. One winner will be chosen at random from each restaurant (that means Hollywood, Pasadena, La Brea, the Original Farmers Market, Woodland Hills and the USC Village), and if picked, you’ll be able to stop by any Trejo’s for one free taco each day until November 1.

Update: One of the lucky Golden Ticket winners was my buddy, Anthony Ferara from San Pedro. Congrats Anthony, enjoy those tacos!

KFC Cheetos Sandwich

Kentucky Fried Chicken and the fan-favorite Cheetos brand announced the nationwide launch of the Cheetos Sandwich with assistance from its newest Colonel, the most mischievous cat around: Chester Cheetah.

Chester is the first brand icon and spokescheetah to portray KFC’s famous founder, Colonel Harland Sanders. He will take the reins on KFC’s social channels and appear on TV screens in ad spots (beginning June 30) to promote the iconic co-branded partnership and remind Cheetos and KFC lovers everywhere that the new Cheetos Sandwich is only available at KFC through the end of July.  

The Cheetos Sandwich – a juicy, hand-breaded Extra Crispy chicken filet drizzled with a special Cheetos sauce, layered over Cheetos and mayo, placed on a toasted bun – will satisfy all your crunchy, cheesy wishes.

To prepare for the role, Chester donned his best white Colonel suit, posed in a digital billboard spot and even took over a New York City KFC (242 E. 14th Street), hosting an Instagrammable and exclusive pop-up event on June 27. The party featured one-of-a-kind KFC and Cheetos mashup menu items available only at the event and an exclusive first taste of the new Cheetos Sandwich for consumers.

Chester took it upon himself to “Cheetos-fy” the entire restaurant, including a 28 feet by 12 feet long wall mural painted outside the restaurant by artist, Vizie, in what he calls “an explosion of flavor.” The abstract and colorful mural is a symbolic representation to show the merging of two renowned brands, KFC and Cheetos, and is available for fans to snap a selfie in front of through the end of July.

As part of the launch, KFC will also introduce the Cheetos Lovers Box meal, which includes the Cheetos Sandwich, Popcorn Nuggets drizzled in Cheetos sauce, mac and cheese, wedges and a medium drink (prices and participation may vary).

Here Is A First Peek At The Taco Bell Pop-Up Hotel In Palm Springs

Taco Bell shared a first peek inside its much-anticipated pop-up hotel in Palm Springs, California named ‘The Bell’.

Reservations open Thursday, June 27,  with availability to guests this summer from August 8 through August 12 for $169 per night.

“The hotel draws on Taco Bell’s vibrant palette to create a unique and flavor-filled destination that is the ultimate expression of the brand, unlike anything the brand has done before,” says Taco Bell’s senior director of retail engagement and experience, Jennifer Arnoldt.

The branded hotel, which will temporarily take over the V Hotel Palm Springs hotel at 333 E. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs, will offer 70 rooms. It will feature a “Freeze Lounge”—inspired by the chain’s “Mountain Dew Baja Blast” beverage—where presumably guests can enjoy antifreeze-colored slushies, try to not bounce off the walls in the ensuing sugar rush and ultimately crash into a puddle on the floor.

Other entertainment will include “dive-in movies” and performances from musical acts participating in Taco Bell’s long-running “Feed the Beat” food-for-touring-bands program, as well taco-themed nail art.

While guests will be able to eat Taco Bell-inspired resort fare and new (as-yet-unveiled) menu items, Taco Bell is also hinting that Taco Bell breakfast in bed will be available.

What Is The Best Sandwich in Every U.S. State?

From the humble grilled cheese to slow-cooked pulled pork, there’s something for everyone at sandwich establishments across the nation.

Preferences vary widely from state to state: Some can be held in your hands, much like the original; other’s require a fork and knife to dig into. For purists, a sandwich is anything between two slices of bread or halves of a roll (burgers and hot dogs notwithstanding), and every one of the 50 states has something exciting in that regard to offer.

To create this list, Far & Wide did a deep dive into the culinary history and local specialties of each and every state in order to identify its emblematic sandwich. Once they zeroed in on the dish that best represented the local cuisine, they delved into reviews on Yelp, Facebook, Instagram and TripAdvisor to find the restaurants, sandwich shops and food carts that locals claimed were making the very best examples of what their state had to offer. 

I’m going to go off the list and give a shout out to Portland, Maine where I grew up and their iconic Italian sandwich. For those unfamiliar, a Maine Italian sub is prepared using a long soft Italian bread, ham, American cheese, tomato, onion, sour pickle, green bell pepper, black olives, olive oil, salt and black pepper. I know that everyone loves Amato’s for this New England treat but I prefer Dipietro’s Market in South Portland. If Sam is working say hello from me and feel free to ship me a sub, I sure miss them!
