“Big breakfast tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Always a great spot for breakfast! Their breakfast tacos are filled to the max! They are about $1.79 each for two toppings. I got the egg and cheese and it was pretty big. Try the Shack Taco that has everything and its busting out! We took ours to go and they make it pretty hot and fresh. All in all not bad. A better deal than Rudy's breakfast tacos bc they fill them up so much. They are less buttery but still pretty tasty. Worth a trip up north :)

“Best Breakfast Tacos In Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

The Shack Taco breakfast taco is by far the best in town. It has a flour tortilla with heaps of eggs, chorizo, potatoes and cheese with sides of salsa to put on yourself. Word of advice, if you're planning on going through the drive thru during breakfast time, give yourself at least an additional 10 minutes. The line typically runs into Metric.

The cheese enchiladas were delicious! Good prices and clean restaurant. Staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. Would visit here again on my next trip to Austin. Great location in downtown Austin.
