In Austin, we like to think of ourselves as purveyors of fine food. And what’s finer than meat and eggs nestled together in a warm tortilla? We like authentic tacos, we like creative third-wave tacos, but we especially like breakfast tacos. Those nearly medicinal flour tortillas soak up booze and bad decisions like nothing else can. But the question remains: who does them best?
Who better to ask than a group people who are often up late, slaving away on a stage for the sake of entertainment? Mike Wiebe of Riverboat Gamblers understood the relevance when he said, "If I'm eating breakfast tacos, then that means its pre-noon, and if it's pre-noon, that means I am definitely grumpy and probably hungover... overpowered by the painful phenomena known as 'sunlight.'"
Well said! So, we put together a panel of eight Austin-based musicians; they each gave us their top-five picks, and we assigned points (5 for first place, 4 for second, and so on...). Science! Without further ado, the best damn breakfast tacos in Austin!
