Growing up in San Antonio, I ate breakfast tacos everyday starting in elementary school. Those were the early days of Taco Cabana, and for my mom - boy oh boy - it was like the San Antonio version of McDonalds! Everyday, we'd rush through the drive thru on the way to school and pick up breakfast tacos. In fact - it wasn't until high school, that we moved to Houston - and I was introduced to bagels! Yes, I had never seen a bagel until high school. (It seems weird to think about now!)
After I graduated college, one of my jobs in San Antonio used to regularly bring in breakfast tacos in the morning. Now, working on the east coast - no one around here has even heard of a breakfast taco! (Yeah, if we were in San Antonio...well that would be unheard of!)
So now these days - while sure Taco Cabana is still around - when I visit my folks - we typically head to Taco House, Las Palapas, Mama Margie's, El Mirador, Rosarios, and even Chacho's to pick up tacos all day long.
Ok - so it took me a while to get here - but here's a link to the Twitter war where people take sides on the best breakfast taco.
Is it San Antonio or Austin?
People are taking sides - Austin is staying "weird" and San Antonio is making the claim to being the birthplace of the breakfast taco!
What's your preference?
