...to what's already been posted about this place. Great food, cheap. Breakfast tacos are just ungodly good. Pick 3 off the menu and get one of each if it's your first visit. Careful of the hot sauce if you're a wuss.

Never did I EVER think that I would find a taco joint that served FRIED AVOCADO in one of their signature dishes. This place has a wide selection of taco toppings that I would never think to mix in the way that they do. Their sauces are quite spicy but delicious all the same. There isn't a ton of seating, so snag something when you walk in if you're traveling in numbers. The ordering process is slow going, so know what you want before you get to the counter. I had the Fried Avocado on a corn tortilla, but when I got my taco it came with two tortillas due to the size of the taco and its innards. Needless to say, that one taco became two once a good portion of the filling fell out after the first couple of bites. YUM!
Additionally, they have my favorite Prickly Pear Lemonade, that I first tried at Central Market in San Antonio, and I simply can't get enough. They only strange thing is that they won't carbonate the lemonade like it's supposed to be...they're serving just straight up syrup. Regardless of the lemonade situation, this place is DEFINITELY worth a try! DO IT!

A whole in the wall that takes tex-mex tacos to a new level. Usually the line is outside the door, do not be tempted to go elsewhere, the food is amazing! Cheap, little, hot, crowed but GREAT! Other locations are available and I think a bit nicer.

So good that it should be a single stand alone taco stand, but there are several around Austin. The Roscoe--last month's fried chicken and waffles taco--especially worth a mention. LOVE the Baja fish and the Mr. orange. And so worth the wait. They are fresh. Prepare to spend more than 10 mintues, this is no Taco Bell stand.

Real estate in Westlake just a little less valuable without a Torchy's nearby.

Unique tastes blended together that comes put to be magic. Corn tortillas highly recommended. Friendly staff. Location makes for a lot of eye candy on a saturday early afternoon. Breakfast tacos are loaded up in the tortillas.
