Free Tacos at Jack in the Box!

Um, so, basically that's it. Free tacos (two per customer) today from 2 p.m. to midnight.

What else...


You don't have to buy anything else. You do have to ask for them...


Oh, it's not valid in Kansas City or San Antonio for some reason.

Yup, that's about it!

Schlotzsky's opening brings out the big wigs

The new Schlotzsky's on Judge Ely Blvd. in north Abilene opened today, where the old Burger King used to be.

And the president of Schlotzsky's himself, Kelly Roddy, is there for the big event.

As we first reported in January, it's owned by the same fine folks who own the location on South 14th Street in front of Hobby Lobby.

There is also a Cinnabon located inside the restaurant, so you know it's smellin' good in that neighborhood.

The drive-thru opens at 7:30 a.m. for Cinnabon cookies, coffee and drinks, and the restaurant stays open from 10:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
