Tacos 4 Life to open first Oklahoma location Friday

Tacos 4 Life, a restaurant dedicated to erasing hunger in the world, is scheduled to open Friday, Oct. 25, at 10732 S. Memorial Drive.

This will be the first Oklahoma location for the Arkansas-based regional chain.

For every taco, quesadilla, salad, nachos or rice bowl sold, Tacos 4 Life donates 24 cents to Feed My Starving Children. Twenty-four cents is equivalent to the cost of one meal for a hungry child. Earlier this year, Tacos 4 Life reached the 10 million meals raised milestone.

Tacos 4 Life offers a wide variety of tacos, in addition to salads, rice bowls, nachos, quesadillas and dips.

The Tulsa restaurant will be the 16th store in the chain, which also has locations in Arkansas, Texas, North Carolina and Tennessee.
