If this were an Austin-themed episode of Family Feud, and the topic was Austin’s most awesome attributes, this would be second only to the live music scene. More of a food than a food group, tacos are the most pervasive and versatile of edible items, and can be consumed for breakfast, dinner, or lunch and stuffed with almost everything. Whether you prefer Torchy’s or Tacodeli, Maria’s Taco Xpress or tortilla-wrapped parcels of mystery filling from some guy in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven, there are hundreds of spots on hand to help you satisfy your soft-or-crunchy cravings.
Video stores still exist
Despite Netflix’s near monopolization of the at-home movie-watching market (RIP Blockbuster), rental spots I Luv Video and Vulcan Video have survived, thanks to Austinites’ local loyalty and appreciation of the fact that when you really gotta watch Gremlins at 11:30pm on a Wednesday, there are still a few places that have got you covered. Plus your great-grandma only owns a VCR, and who the hell else can accommodate that?
