$$$$Perfect For:BreakfastLunch

Taco-Mex hits that sweet spot in the breakfast taco Venn diagram of cheap, fast, and good. It’s commonly known as “Taco Window,” because for years, that’s all it was. These days, there’s a tiny dining room where you can grab a seat (and some AC), plus an occasionally opened ordering window.

But from the literal hole in the wall that is Taco-Mex emerge excellent breakfast tacos - especially the migas, with tortilla chips still a little crispy, and the fiery-red chorizo and egg. The price for a breakfast taco here clocks in around $2, so order more than you think you’ll need. FYI: The minimum credit card order is “2 tacos”—but really what are you doing only ordering a single taco?
