Vaquero Taquero

The UT students who have clearly just rolled out of bed and stumbled over to Vaquero Taquero’s brick-and mortar have no idea how good they have it. The al pastor tacos on handmade corn tortillas and the quesadillas are what put this place on the map. But it’s the very well-executed breakfast tacos - especially the bacon, egg, and cheese (with the cheese crisped up on the griddle first) - that make us consider going back to school.

Veracruz All Natural

Veracruz in East Austin makes some of the best migas tacos in Austin. You won’t be mad at the quesadillas, either.

Las Trancas is easily churning out some of the best tacos in town from its trailer in East Austin.

Guero’s Taco Bar

The rare tourist destination that locals love too. This is one of the more fun Tex-Mex hangs in town.
