How to convince your parents to get take-out tacos

(Or how to convince yourself, if you’re old enough to buy your own dinner!)
Order your fresh, tasty Mexican meal online at or on SkipTheDishes, or stop by the restaurant at 90 Thorburn Ave. in Red Deer.

From inflation expenses to diet culture, some of us put a lot of restrictions on the meals we’re allowed to eat. But it doesn’t have to be this way — especially when there are tasty, affordable, nutritious options right here in Red Deer.

You already know that tacos are a near-perfect food: they’re versatile, portable and absolutely delicious. But if there’s someone in your life holding you back from Mexican-inspired bliss (your parents, your significant other or your roommate) we’ve come up with a strategy to get them aboard the taco train.

1. Secret messages.

Have you ever had a conversation with a friend about a new store, only to see an ad for that store pop up on your phone the same day? Try this tactic with tacos. No, we don’t mean whispering into every phone and computer in the house. Just casually change every browser’s homepage to, and suggest that your parents like and follow GUAC on Facebook and Instagram so they happen to be reminded of the delicious lunch and dinner options right here in Red Deer.

2. Slap them with a tortilla.

With their consent of course! The Tortilla Slap Challenge has been trending on TikTok and Instagram for over a year, and even Kevin Hart and The Rock have gotten in on the fun.

  1. Both you and your partner take a sip of water (without swallowing). Hold the water in your cheeks and try not to laugh!
  2. Play a game of rock-paper-scissors.
  3. The winner slaps the loser with a tortilla.
  4. After you clean up the spilled water, order GUAC for a post-game celebration.

3. Pure logic.

It can be a lot of fun, but you don’t have to play games or employ secret tactics to convince someone to celebrate Taco Tuesday. Especially at GUAC, the benefits speak for themselves.

“New customers are often amazed by our portion sizes, and the value in every meal. We’re proud of the fact that we make everything from scratch so ingredients are always fresh,” says GUAC Red Deer owner Raj Multani.

Whether you’re convincing your parents, your roommate or just yourself, a meal from GUAC Mexi Grill is an easy decision because the nutritional value, price and flavour are all appetizing.

Order online at or on SkipTheDishes, or stop by the restaurant at 90 Thorburn Ave. You can also follow them on Facebook and Instagram for meal deals and ideas.
