When The Original El Taco closed in Virginia-Highland, we were distraught thinking of our last tasty taco there. But two locations (in Terminals C and F) remain operational in the airport, so we can still indulge in a taco or two (even if it’s not nearly as good as the flagship restaurant). The counter stalls open at 6am every morning and offer a few breakfast options. Flour tortillas filled with standard, large-batch scrambled eggs, pico, and guacamole might not exactly taste first-class. But clocking in at $5 each, our wallet is happy and we’re on our way to our departure gate with food in hand while our friends are still near the back of some coffee shop line.
