Taco House

6307 San Pedro Ave., San Antonio, TX - (210) 341-3136

When I solicited suggestions for where to eat in San Antonio, Chris Ayers wrote to say that he remembers going to Taco House when he was "barely big enough to see over the counter" and described it as "a true Roadfood eatery." What a good suggestion this turned out to be. I hadn't previously thought of San Antonio as a breakfast city, but it sure is; and Taco House is a shining example of why. More than a dozen different breakfast tacos are available, from bacon and egg to carne guisada (gravy-sopped beef) and lengua (tongue). Freshly-made flour tortillas make a big difference, delivering even the most plebeian filling with high honors. And by the way, Taco House's plebeian fillings are far from drab. Eggs are buttery; bacon is thick and smoky; nuggets of potato are cooked to a perfect point of inside creaminess and outside crunch.

At Chris's suggestion, I went for chorizo and egg, which, per local custom, is not eggs with a side order of chorizo sausage but rather eggs scrambled with ground up sausage to become an entirely new and different food: juicy, spicy and butter-rich. It's great on a plate with refried beans and potatoes or as the filling of a taco.
