South Austin Breakfast Taco Guide!!
Welcome to the South Austin Breakfast Taco Guide! Here is the answer to your question: Where are the BEST TACOS IN AUSTIN?? (At least South Austin)
We love breakfast tacos. Who doesn’t? There’s nothing better than a really fresh taco made with good ingredients and topped with delicious salsa. And the best thing is that you can put just about anything into a taco – veggies, fish, meat, beans, leftovers and any kind of sauce you can imagine. We make tacos for breakfast at home at least 3-4 times per week, but where do you find a good taco when you want to eat out? Look no more – here is our guide to the tacos of South Austin for those of us that live and work south of the river, and for those visiting the city for festivals like ACL or SXSW. This guide is also a part of the Austin Food Bloggers’ 2018 City Food Guide (#ATXBestEats). Enjoy and eat more tacos!

Traditional Mexican, fast and easy
This may be our favorite taco place in South Austin. The food is authentic, the atmosphere is relaxed and the people who work there are super friendly. The taco toppings are all delicious, and the corn tortillas are fresh. When you go, think about trying one of the three traditional dishes on the left side of the menu – huaraches, tlacoyos and sopes. All these are a bit like open-faced tacos.

Unusual ingredients and combinations, regular specials, local ingredients
Super popular south Austin taco joint that now has several locations around Austin. Taco Deli focuses on using high quality and local ingredients, and has a range of unique options. You can also find Taco Deli tacos at most of the big farmer’s markets in town and at a number of coffee shops. However, the tacos are much better from the restaurant.

Relaxed hangout, excellent food
One of the classic, old-Austin Mexican restaurants south of the river. Curra’s has been around for decades. Their menu is very traditional Tex-Mex. They serve good margaritas, and the atmosphere is relaxed. A great place to meet friends.

Classic tex-mex, dirt cheap tacos, nice porch
Another old-Austin Tex-Mex. Sazon has delicious dirt cheap tacos on fresh homemade corn tortillas. Sazon feels like it hasn’t been updated in a long time, but the porch is a perfect place to hang out and get a taco after a dip in the springs.

Old Austin hippies, vegetarian with good coffee
Bouldin Creek Cafe was another classic old Austin hippie hang-out. In the early 2000’s, like Maria’s, they were forced to move and found a new home just a bit further south. They managed to keep the laid back, eclectic feel of the restaurant through the upgrade, and they still have a huge following. Be prepared for a wait on weekends.
