Tacos = love. Tacos + Round Rock = obsession. Tacos + Round Rock + #NationalTacoDay = full on, get out of my way, push to the front of the line, can you believe this is real life status.
So, yeah. Tacos make up pretty much 87 percent of our diet, and while health experts may balk at that fact, we embrace our relationship with what we’ve come to know as the tortilla temptress. After all, with so many delicious, local destinations, it’d be nearly impossible for us to curb our cravings.
We also make sure to remind ourselves that with every taco we devour within the Round Rock city limits, we’re helping to support our local economy – it’s simple taconomics, y’all!
But where can you find the upper echelon of these tasty, tubular treats? Culture Map just released a list of the best tacos in Austin and to no one’s surprise here locally, three of the twelve spots are located right here in Round Rock:
- Veracruz All Natural: “Order the migas taco: house-made tortilla chips and pico de gallo mixed into scrambled eggs and topped with cheese and an avocado wedge for $3. Healthy alternative: La Reyna with egg whites, spinach, avocado, carrots, mushrooms, red bell pepper, pico de gallo, and cheese for $3.50. Must-have condiment: molcajete-fresh salsa roja.”
- Torchy’s Tacos: “Since it’s election season, why not follow President Obama’s lead and vote with your gut? Get the Democrat (shredded beef barbacoa topped with fresh avocado, queso fresco, cilantro, onions, and a wedge of lime with tomatillo salsa on a fresh corn tortilla for $4); the Republican (grilled jalapeño sausage, shredded cheese, and pico de gallo with poblano sauce on a flour tortilla for $3.25); and the Independent (hand-battered and fried Portobello mushroom strips with refried black beans, roasted corn, escabeche carrots, queso fresco, cilantro, and avocado with ancho aioli on a flour tortilla for $3.50).”
