We’ve made our feelings on the Torchy’s versus Tacodeli debate clear - Tacodeli wins the breakfast taco battle. They do a killer sirloin, egg, and cheese taco, and their doña salsa will light your mouth on fire in the best way. You may pay a dollar or so more than the average taco here, but you get higher-quality everything. The North Lamar location is most convenient if you’re looking for something during the work day. Just expect a line - don’t worry, it moves quickly.
