What you're getting: The Pharr East
Incredibly, this Airport Boulevard spot is missing from big top 10 round-ups despite its penchant for the cutesy gringo taco names that Austinites hold so dear. For example, you could go with the Yoda (bean, potato, Sriracha mayo, and avocado) or keep up the imperialist theme with the Pharr East, a carnitas, jalapeño, taki, cilantro, carrot, cucumber, and chamo combo.
What you're getting: Chicharron
What’s better than chicharron wrapped with corn tortilla and nestled in beans, cilantro, lettuce, and cheese? Two-dollar, 25-cent, made-to-order chicharron wrapped with corn tortilla and nestled in beans, cilantro, lettuce, and cheese. What’s even better than that? La Fogata’s $1.50 migas tacos. And so on.
