Tortilla chips are good on their own, but they reach peak snack level when they're dipped. And while salsa is great and all, it's guacamole that deserves the most hype. In fact, guac is so good, it gets an entire day dedicated to it. Yup—September 16 is National Guacamole Day, so mark your calendars people!

Sure, making guacamole yourself is fun (we have over 25 guacamole recipes you can try) or perhaps you prefer to follow Chipotle's famous recipe, but free food just hits different, so here are all of the places offering free and cheap guac on National Guacamole Day. Guac on, my friend.

Del Taco

Guac lovers can redeem a free snack-size portion of Fresh Guacamole with any purchase at their local Del Guaco "guac-thru" in honor of National Guacamole Day. The free guac coupon is available in the Del Taco app from September 16 to September 19.

Chipotle

to celebrate National Guac Day on September 16th, Chipotle is officially launching its highly anticipated Chips and Guac slides on chipotlegoods.com. These comfy, super lightweight slides are available in two colors, Black Bean and Pepper, and made from molded rubber that conforms to your feet. All profits from the Chipotle Goods collection will go towards supporting organizations that are focused on making fashion or farming more sustainable.

Wholly Guacamole

Dallas locals can get their guac on for FREE… at a fun pop-up, guacamole drive-thru, The Pit Stop, courtesy of the Wholly Guacamole brand. Additionally, the makers of Wholly Guacamole are giving five lucky fans the chance to win free guacamole for a year by swapping out under or over-ripened avocados for delicious, ready to eat guacamole.
