El Primo Taco Truck
Founded by Jose Luis Perez and run alongside his two siblings, El Primo is an unassuming but undeniable taco joint on South 1st. Nestled in a parking lot between a tattoo parlor and a barber shop, the pint-sized food truck serves up cheap, mouth-watering tacos, burritos and tortas from 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday. El Primo’s breakfast tacos are works of art and only set you back $2.25 each, with your choice of bacon, beans, sausage, chorizo, or migas and ham to pair with your eggs. Unfortunately, El Primo closes its doors on Sundays, so you’ll have to look elsewhere for brunch. But if you’re looking for the perfect breakfast stop on your morning commute, you can’t go wrong. Also, if you find yourself on campus, be sure to check out the Burrito Factory, another tasty venture from the Perez family.
Must-try taco: Chorizo, Egg, and Cheese Taco
You really can’t mess up at El Primo, but for breakfast, our pick is the chorizo, egg, and cheese taco. It’s simple, delicious, and monstrous—and if you’re feeling extra hungry, you can always go for a breakfast torta instead.
