Some taco places you go to for the tacos alone. Paco’s is a place you go to because it’s the full package. Order some breakfast tacos (they’re the best thing here), get a Bloody Mary, hit the salsa bar with feeling, and take your bounty out on to the funky patio. Paco’s Tacos is the kind of spot you only find in Austin.
