A suburban Illinois taco shop went viral after the owner's daughter posted on TikTok, asking for more customers. The place was virtually empty but Friday night there was a line out the door all night long, and the owner said she hasn't stopped moving since Thursday. They close at 9 p.m. but said they won't turn people away given this sudden fame.
A video posted on the account @tacoboutjoys showed a barren Taco-Bout-Joy's shop in Glenview.
"It breaks my heart to see my mom watching the door everyday waiting for a customer to walk in," the owner's daughter said in her post. "I wish I could give her customers for Christmas."
The video took off, gaining 3.7 million likes and over 50,000 comments by Friday afternoon.
"I got the text from my sister," said owner Joy Milan. "Hey, did you see that TikTok video? And I'm like, what video?" "I think it's great. It really shows the power of social media," said Steph Gunn, who lives in Des Plaines.
