The staff is extremely friendly and they make some terrific food. The menu is pretty straight-forward - my personal favorite is the bacon breakfast burrito, but I get the tacos a lot too. I live nearby and this is my go to spot for a quick breakfast or lunch.

Breakfast taco is so good. Best I have had in Austin! Owners are the nicest people! I order two and immediately order two more.

The breakfast tacos were good, but I wasn't a huge fan of the eggs - a bit more rubbery than I usually prefer. But the overall experience was great and the price was incredible. We fed four people two tacos each for $16 and you can't go wrong there! I had a chorizo and a bacon - I preferred the... More

The breakfast tacos are really good and for a pretty good price. I definitely recommend. They have a lot of choices too. Easy to find.

Bon Appetit magazine's November issue included reviews of taco stands in Austin. We were in town just before Christmas to see live music and tour the renovated LBJ Presidential Library.

Very much worth stoping for great tacos at this place! Chorizo breakfast burrito was excellent! Parking can be difficult at times, but you won't be disappointed with the food!

A rainy and unusually cold day in Austin was brightened by a delicious breakfast burrito and a special torta. Both were chocked full of morsels of meat and egg/sausage respectively. The salsa was flavorful with the hot sauce adding a nice kick. Being able to eat inside the nearby coffee shop was a bonus in this cold day.

We scrambled around Austin one morning looking for breakfast tacos. Had never had them before so we wanted to get the best. El Primo did not disappoint. It was hard to find, but once we found it, there was no line and we walked right up and placed our order. What we did not know was that one of the... More
