Taco Bell giving away free breakfast burritos Thursday and bringing back World Series promo

·2 min read

Weeks after National Taco Day, Taco Bell has another freebie.

This time, participating restaurants nationwide are giving away free Toasted Breakfast Burritos Thursday from 7 to 11 a.m. local time, while supplies last. A purchase is not needed to get the free burrito in restaurants or at the drive-thru.

Taco Bell said the offer is to celebrate the nationwide return of breakfast, which was temporarily cut amid the coronavirus pandemic. Other restaurants also trimmed menus and hours during the pandemic.

The fast-food chain confirmed to USA TODAY that 90% of restaurants nationwide are serving breakfast and plans to expand to all restaurants in the future.
