Breakfast tacos at Villa Arcos

Villa Arcos

There’s a wicked wait, but it’s worth it for the best chicharrón-and-egg tacos in town. Each bite of crisped-up pig skin brings an addictive crunch you’ll never find in the stewed variety.

Brothers Taco House

Pass up the “weiner and egg” combo in favor of the classic chorizo on a fresh flour tortilla topped with a spoonful of salsa verde.

Chilosos Taco House

A taco with Chappell Hill sausage and eggs + some of the fluffiest flour tortillas you’ve ever encountered = the ultimate Tex-Mex breakfast.

Laredo Taqueria

Even the most basic potato-and-egg taco tastes amazing thanks to Laredo’s homemade tortillas and zesty, fiery salsas.

Tacos a Go-Go

The breakfast tacos here cost nearly $2.50 each, but these behemoths are well worth it, especially when stuffed with your pick of toppings. Note to late risers: they’re served all day long and late into the night.
