Who says you have to mosey into Austin for an all-star cast of breakfast tacos? Definitely not The Wall Street Journal…
In their recent article, “Breakfast Tacos: The 5 Best Places to Find Them in Austin, Texas,” contributor Kathryn O’Shea-Evans, breaks down the most tempting tortilla and bacon wielding early risers the state capital has to offer. In most cases, a list of taco joints would be cause for celebration in and of itself around these parts, but when we saw that one of the restaurants mentioned calls Round Rock home, we nearly blew a scrambled egg gasket, y’all.
Now, it’s really no secret that we’ve got quite a few award-worthy places to fill up on down home deliciousness, but heck, who wouldn’t get a little giddy to have the folks at The Wall Street Journal singing a local’s praises?
Ok, ok. We can hear your stomach grumble with anticipation as you eagerly await the unveiling of which delicious Round Rock destination made the list, so we’ll give in and reduce our rambling to a simmer.
It’s Veracruz All Natural. Their first brick-and-mortar shop located here earlier this year, and like most everyone else to ever taco-tap-dance through their doors, Round Rock just can’t seem to get enough.
So, what’d Wall Street have to say?
“Reyna Vazquez opened Veracruz All Natural food truck in 2006, when she was 24, and worked multiple jobs to get it off the ground. “I wanted to help my mom, who was cleaning houses at that time,” said Ms. Vazquez, who moved to Austin after graduating from high school in Veracruz, Mexico. Her sister, Maritza, joined her as co-owner in 2008, and the duo eventually upgraded the truck and started serving the breakfast tacos they’d grown up eating in Veracruz, where the key ingredient is a corn tortilla cooked just after it’s ordered. The sisters now run two food trucks—one in East Austin and the other in the South Lamar neighborhood—and a restaurant in Round Rock, a suburb. In 2015 the Food Network named their migas taco among the five best tacos in the country.”

Want better roads? How about better parks? All you have to do is Shop the Rock. Seriously, head over to the outlets and buy those shoes, or venture downtown for lunch. It doesn’t matter if you are shopping, dining or getting a haircut your dollars are helping to pay it forward and build our community. What makes this possible? Sales tax. Though it may be the least sexy tax, it is the hardest working one. So next time you see a shirt you love, buy it. Your city will thank you.
