    Huge list of options with breakfast all day, not as super authentic Mexican as I anticipated but still amazing. Love the El Gringo shrimp taco. $2 mimosas and bloody marys all day on weekends.

    Another great taco shop helping make Austin the taco capital of the world. They have a great variety of homemade salsa and have just about any taco you could want. Paco's Pick is a good start.

    Have the fish taco. Quite yummy. Refried beans need some work (taste like canned, to smooth),as does the rice. The hot sauces are not for the faint of heart. I would visit again.

    Pretty small place, but well worth the stop if you're in the area. It holds up against any of the big Austin taco chains.

    Paco's Pick is simply divine and it has a very reasonable price! Make it a meal with tortilla chips and queso and you are set!

    There's basically no wrong thing to order here. Tacos are a bit on the small side; you won't be disappointed by ordering two.
