I am from Texas and in this area tacos are king. They are king because of price, convenience, speed, but mostly because of taste. Also because you can eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in this part of the world. Maybe it is the smaller portion or the $2.00 price point, but people feel free to combine interesting flavors within a simple tortilla, eggs, duck, avacado, chillies, homemade sausage, or classic barbacoa.
For me the I love the classic Mexico City taqueria style tacos, but the choices are endless and so glad that they are. For any of my more local readers my two votes here in town are Fuel City the street-style classic and then second Torchy’s (an Austin original) that arrived around the corner from place just last year. Torchy’s has amazing flavor combinations and the large number of salsa options is another reason to go.
