Ever since I first had The Peached Tortilla it has been one of my favorites on the local trailer circuit. Well just last month they opened a Brick & Mortar location and it’s wonderful. You can check out a full review of it right here

They are the place that does it all. Are you having a party or a wedding? Did you know the Peached Tortilla also does catering? I could not think of a more unique, delicious or Austin style way to have and event catered. Not to mention, I am sure the truck would make for quite the photo op.

The best way to keep up with their trailer schedule is follow them on twitter, check the schedule on their website or give them a call.

Tonight Odd Duck is celebrating 5 years in Austin. I can still remember when Odd Duck was that little red trailer, it was my go to destination for dinner. Now they’ve moved on to bigger and better things but today is a  ‘throwback Tuesday’ to their roots.

They’re going to have drinks and old school trailer food (pork belly sliders yall) for a minimum donation of $25 where a portion of proceeds will benefit Zilker Elementary’s Edible Schoolyard Program.

In the spirit of ‘Throwback Tuesday’ here is the first blog post I wrote on the Odd Duck trailer back in September 2010.

When: today, December 9th

Time: 5 – 9 pm

Location:
Odd Duck

It’s always great to see when a trailer takes the leap from serving out of a trailer to having a brick and mortar location. The step has finally happened for The Peached Tortilla and I’m pretty thrilled about it.

I was there for a sneak peak this weekend and immediately fell in love. The décor is charming, sleek and retro all at the same time. Their restaurant also offers a full bar with beer, wine and a quite impressive list of cocktails.

Their take on Asian Fusion is bar none some of the best in town. Their menu is always rotating so it’s hard to give food recommendations. Most their dishes are made to be shared so I like to order a lot and just eat family style. Their restaurant does feature their famous Japa Jam burger, so you must order that on one of your visits there.

Tonight they’ll have another soft opening from 5 – 9 pm followed by their Grand Opening tomorrow.

Peached Tortilla fans, you’re day has come. Enjoy.

Ah, the great Austin breakfast taco debate. The subject creates heated arguments amongst best friends and loved ones, not to mention internet commenters! So, don’t think of this as a ‘Top 10′ list, take it as a list of 14 of the taco places we currently love the most. If we missed one of your top picks, feel free to share it in the comments below.

Happy National Taco Day y’all!


14 of the Best Breakfast Taco Joints in Austin

By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

There's something about putting breakfast in a taco that just makes sense. Not every restaurant gets it right, but these ones do. Check out these 14 amazing breakfast taco joints in Austin.

  • Joe’s Bakery

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    There’sno substitute for fresh tortillas. When you're at Joe’s, the tortillasare made no more than 20ft from your table. Ifyou like to build your own tacos, I highly recommend the Joey Rocha Plate.

  • Veracruz All Natural

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    If I had to pick a personal favorite on thelist, Veracruz would be it. Their tacos aren’t flashy, andthe menu isn’t as exotic as Taco Deli, for example, but they just makeconsistently great tacos.

  • Mi Madre’s

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    Ground beef doesn’t sound like an appetizing breakfast ingredient, but for some reason I always snag the ground beef, Mexican rice & cheese along with my more traditional bacon, egg, potato & cheese.

  • Rosita’s Al Pastor

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    To be clear, we’re talking about Rosita’swhite trailer on East Riverside. They make their thick & chewy flour tortillas fresh daily & their chorizo, egg & potato taco is the ultimate hangover cure.

  • Taco Deli

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    The thing about Taco Deli is that you either love it or hate it. While their offerings aren’t traditional, I personally love it, and it’s usually the first place I take friends from out of town/state.

  • Tamale House East

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    The original Tamale House on Airportclosing was unfortunate, but losing this family’s contribution to the localfood scene completely would be a tragedy! Do your part and check out this gem.

  • Marcelino Pan y Vino

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    It looks sketchy from theoutside, but the folks inside are welcoming. I haven’t found anything that I don’t love, but try the spicy potatoes. They look like fries but taste like breakfast potatoes.

  • Cisco’s

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    There’s something special about eating at this iconic establishment. Be sure to to look at the pictures, articles, etc. posted around the restaurant; if these walls could talk!

  • Porfirio’s

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    Cheap. Fast. Delicious. What else do you need?

  • La Mexicana Bakery

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    The fact that they’re open 24 hours is enough reason for them to be on the list, but they actually serve some great tacos. Adding a cookie from their beautiful display to your order won’t hurt either.

  • Fresca’s

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    I get that this place is expensive, especially when it comes to their chicken. But they do have great (not terribly expensive) breakfast tacos, a drive-through & Stumptown Coffee.

  • Amaya’s Taco Village

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    Amaya’s family-owned feel & focus onexceptional service have built them a healthy following over 40 years,and I’m definitely a huge fan of the place myself. 3 item breakfast tacos start at $1.39.

  • Torchy’s

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    No Austin taco list is complete without a nod to the people’s champ. I like them more for their chips & guac & secret taco menu, but I know y’all would be up in arms if I didn’t include them here!

  • El Primo

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    This trailer serves up some of the bestbreakfast tacos in Austin. I always go for the homemade chorizo; it's a gooey delicious mess of breakfast foods, folded perfectly into a freshflour tortilla.

This little diner is new to the Eastside and has drawn quite the loyal following.

photo 1-44

As I stepped inside I felt as I was walking into a time capsule from the 1950’s. You can’t help but find charm in the retro interior that is perfectly done. Once you pick up a menu, it’s pretty much what you would expect for a diner. I went with the pancakes because who doesn’t love pancakes, and a side of fried okra because “I had to try it.” The pancakes were fluffy and the okra was spot on. It is no doubt a place that I will be back to.

Another plus is that they offer a full bar menu, along with three cocktails on tap.

As we get into fall keep in mind they have a quaint little patio that would be perfect for enjoying your meal in those breezy fall temps.

If you go for weekend brunch, expect to wait. When I stopped by on a weekday, there was no line. They are slated to have dinner hours soon.

Mind blown. Stomach full. Was I just on East Cesar Chavez? Jacoby’s isn’t too far off the beaten path, but the lakeside location and general ambiance will make you feel miles away from Central Austin.

Let’s talk more on the location. It sits on the shores of The Colorado River about two miles east of I-35 on Cesar Chavez. Adam Jacoby’s family runs Jacoby Feed & Seed in Melvin, TX, and many of the meats, cheeses and other produce come from the family ranch.

jacobys

The ceiling and decking are from old barns on the family’s ranch as well, and there are countless other items that have been repurposed to decorate this addition to the Austin culinary scene.

Onto the food. I couldn’t get enough of any of the bites I sampled. There was a cheeseburger slider with Havarti that literally melted in your mouth. They also had an offering of chips with pimiento cheese that served as my favorite starter. The deviled eggs were also a hit. We finished things off with a coconut cupcake- okay, maybe I had about three of them, but they were the icing on the cake to a perfect evening.

In regard to beverages, they have an excellent wine list and cocktail menu. The Uppercut Punch is both refreshing and delicious. It tastes like summer.

Lastly, it makes me so happy to say that owners are amazing. I spent time talking to both of them and you can tell that every detail of this establishment was thoroughly thought over, and that this truly is their baby. I wish them nothing but success, as I foresee many, many nights sipping cocktails on their patio in my future!

Bravo y’all, I’m already planning my next visit.

You may have heard of the Food Truck, Garbo’s, which I instantly fell in love with upon discovering about a year ago. Well, a few weeks ago they quietly opened a brick and mortar location, and not surprisingly, it’s fantastic.

Owner, Heidi Garbo’s family runs lobster traps in Maine so each day fresh lobster is overnighted to her for her rolls.

garbos

I don’t think it’s possible to have a bad meal here. However, if you’re looking for suggestions on what to order, the blistered shishitos, the lobster rolls, and the Wagyu burger are undoubtedly menu winners. I know you’re thinking, “a burger at a lobster joint?” But both our server and the owner recommend it so it had to be order. It was bar none, one of the most fantastic burgers I’ve ever had. For those with deep pockets, there’s the Hamptons Roll, which is a $45 roll that sounds amazing.

Now, here’s what seals the deal for me, it’s BYOB. They do serve wine from local winery, The Austin Winery, but you also have the option of bringing your own!

They’re currently working on a lunch menu, and once completed, they’ll offer counter service during lunchtime to help you get in and out quickly.

Save  room for a root beer float!

This is definitely one of the best weeks to eat out in Austin. I advise taking a week off your ‘get ready for summer’ diet, because if you’re like me, you don’t stand a chance of sticking to it.

Austin Restaurant Week gives you an opportunity to explore all kinds of local restaurants, and they’re all offering great deals. Participating restaurants have pre-fixe menus with insane prices.

Looking at the list of participating places gets me so excited. The only problem is that this event doesn’t last long enough to fit them all in!

If eating out at these places for a fraction of the normal price wasn’t enough- a portion of all proceeds from restaurant week benefits Meals on Wheels.

Important – for the best experience, make sure to call ahead and make reservations!

iPhone/Android Users: download the free app. It’s great for helping you organize your week of fine dining! http://restaurantweekaustin.com/mobile-app/

Pre-fixe prices:  Lunch: $12-$17, 
Dinner: $27-$37

When: today, May 18 – Wednesday, May 21
