Wendy's shocks by bringing back a classic favorite for National Taco Day

Every Tuesday might be Taco Tuesday but this week is a little bit more special.

In case you didn't know, October 4 is National Taco Day and Wendy's is celebrating with a major menu addition that's sure to make spicy waves.

The fast-food joint is bringing back their cult-following '90s classic – the Taco Salad.

The salad starts with a bed of lettuce, and is topped with Wendy's signature chili, chopped tomatoes and shredded cheese.

Perhaps the best part about the item is that the rest is completely customizable, or as Wendy's says: "Anything on the salad is your call!"

Chips, sour cream, extra cheese? If your heart desires it, they'll make it for you.

Vice President of Wendy's brand marketing, Carl Loredo, said in a press release this morning:

"Wendy's Taco Salad is an all-time classic and, over the years, fans of the original have asked if we'd ever bring it out of retirement. We love how nostalgic and passionate our loyal Taco Salad fans are and look forward to introducing it to a new generation of fans with the same build and quality ingredients"

The salad is offered in two sizes, a full-sized bowl for $5.99 and $3.99 for a half-sized salad.

10 money-saving fast-food hacks

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order two four-piece nuggets instead of one six-piece. It’s cheaper, you get more nuggets and you get more sauces. Score.

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order a McDouble without the ketchup and mustard but with lettuce and Big Mac sauce. You'll pay for the Big Mac taste for the price of a McDouble.

Restaurant: Chipotle

Hack: Order half of one protein and half of another kind (like chicken and steak). You’ll almost always get more than half of each and end up with up to 1.5x the protein in your burrito or bowl for the price of a normal portion.

Restaurant: Arby’s

Hack: Order two junior roast beef sandwiches instead of one regular classic. You'll end up with more meat for a lower price.

Restaurant: Jamba Juice

Hack: Substitute any ingredient in any smoothie for the same price. If you’re craving a smoothie with non-fat yogurt instead of mango, or extra strawberries instead of blueberries, customize it to your liking without any extra charge. It will save you more than being charged for creating your own smoothie from scratch.

Restaurant: Jack in the Box

Hack: Order two Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers and combine them into one for a much cheaper version of a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger.

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order a sausage McMuffin off of the dollar menu but ask for the sausage to be substituted with egg—an egg McMuffin for a dollar.

Restaurant: Any pizza place

Hack: When you call to order delivery, ask if there were any orders that weren’t delivered—the pizza place will often give you those orders for a discounted price (perfect if cold pizza is your thing.)

Restaurant: Subway

Hack: Order a Double Steak and Cheese Sub instead of the Philly Cheese Steak Sub—you’ll get the same sandwich at a normal foot-long price.
