Tyson's Tacos


4905 Airport Blvd, Austin
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Tyson’s is a bold challenger to Torchy’s iron-fisted grasp on taco supremacy of Austin. The food here is good, and despite the gourmet ingredients, it’s somehow priced quite reasonably. Tyson’s is much less focused on serving up traditional tacos and feels more like somebody stoned in a kitchen tossing a little of this and a little of that together.

The Airport Blvd location is actually charmingly in disrepair, and certainly feels more welcoming than the sterility found in any new Taco Deli location. The most charming aspect of Tyson’s is the ukulele by the ordering window. If you have the audacity to play it and sing a song to the folks in line behind you, you will receive a free taco. Unless you are musically gifted, be prepared for skepticism by the cashier who is clearly tired of hearing vocally challenged people like me make a fool out of themselves in exchange for saving a few bucks.
