On the Cooking Channel’s Taco Trip, four local taco hot spots will be featured this evening. La Calaca Feliz, Sancho Pistola’s, Union Taco and Tuk Tuk Real will all be making their TV debuts.

The show debuts at 9:30 p.m. and Sancho’s, Union Taco and Tuk Tuk Real are all hosting viewing parties. Union Taco and Tuk Tuk are both offering $2 tacos. Union Taco is even offering delivery from their Manayunk location if you buy five or more tacos.

Taco Trip - Philadelphia [Cooking Channel]
Calling all broke college students and anyone else who loves free things and tacos. In order to celebrate Union Taco’s grand opening in Manayunk, the taqueria will be giving away free tacos tomorrow between noon and 2 p.m. Each guest, whether dining in or taking out, will get one taco on the house, but you can enjoy the entire menu, too.
This is Chef Nick Farina’s second Union Taco, and while the menu is almost identical to Northern Liberties’, though you won’t find any flatbreads at the Manayunk location. Yet that didn’t hinder Farina’s enthusiasm for his new opening. “I’m really excited to meet our new clientele and introduce our cuisine to Manayunk taco lovers.” And for you late-night taco lovers, Union Taco will be open until 3 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
The new location will be at 4229 Main Street.
