Veracruz All Natural - This trailer on E. Caesar Chavez (between Comal and Chicon) is open for breakfast and lunch only. I tried a breakfast taco with potato, egg and cactus (nopalito) on a homemade flour tortilla. Light, fluffy tortilla and eggs, tender potatoes and good flavor from the nopalito. A friend ordered the mole taco with onions and queso fresco on a homemade corn tortilla (a recent addition to the menu). The bite I tried was bold and savory with just the right amount of spice.
La Cocina de Consuelo's - In Rosedale on 45th, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner on certain nights. Until recently I had never eaten there for breakfast, but have been for lunch and dinner. Their breakfast tacos are actually breakfast burritos; very generous portions and very filling. Their homemade tortillas are a big part of what elevates these tacos. I had the potato, egg and cheese on a flour tortilla with their spicy roja salsa. The tortilla is grilled and folded in place which keeps all of the ingredients from spilling out. Gina had the barbacoa on a corn tortilla (pictured above). She loved that it was not too fatty or overly greasy. It had great flavor and the verde salsa was a good match.
Tacodeli - Only open for breakfast and lunch. Skip the breakfast tacos if you like potatoes in yours (they use a mashed potato which isn't really to our taste) and opt instead for the cowboy taco or the daily taco special. We love El Picosito (available Mondays), Delibelly (available Wednesdays) and Scallops (available on Thursdays). Three locations north, south and mid-town.
Arrandas #3 - The one on Burnet Road is a neighborhood favorite (it is the place my son likes to go for his breakfast tacos because they are inexpensive, satisfying and taste great). The potato, egg, bacon and cheese is recommended.
Dos Batos - Located on W. Anderson Lane, Gina says this is a primo place for authentic wood fired tacos. Her favorite is the Ostin with chicken, onions and peppers.
Taco More - I have only been to the location in North Austin on Parkfield, but there is now an E. Riverside location near Oltorf. Solid, inexpensive tacos that tastes like Mamá made them. Their specialty is the goat barbacoa.
