The knock-down, drag-out winner is the one with the freshest and most high-quality ingredients. For 15 years, Tacodeli has been making Austin’s best organic, locally-sourced, and from scratch "white-people-tacos". Singer-songwriter/Spanglish-speaker extraordinaire Chris Brecht is a fan of their papas, egg & cheese. Let’s not even get into their Doña Sauce, or it’s super secret-recipe — we don’t know what’s in it, but it burns SO GOOD. Co-owner Eric Wilkerson says, "As long-time supporters of the local music scene, we always strive to serve tacos that rock! Musicians are even the reason we serve breakfast tacos all day on weekends, given their late night schedules, of course." Go Tacodeli!
Honorable Mention: Joe’s Bakery & Coffee Shop on E 7th, Taco-Mex Window on Manor Rd
