    Been a loyal Shack fan for 15+ years and it is as good as the 1st time that I ordered my first potato, egg, & cheese taco. The entire menu is amazing, so you really can't go wrong with anything

    Migas tacos have made my day! I live in NYC and might miss breakfast tacos more than about anything else.

    The Burrito Bowl is tasty and definitely enough. Good quality, good prices.

    I enjoyed the giant sized Bevo Burrito for breakfast: good fajita meat and eggs that was tasty and filling this morning.

    You can’t go wrong with a potato, bacon and cheese breakfast taco while visiting Austin. Taco Shack at 4th and Brazos is within striking distance of the Convention Center. Get yourself some! Read more

    Eat here every day. There are folks around the world who aren't as fortunate as you and don't have breakfast tacos available to them.

    So authentic that one could probably experience a little Montezuma's Revenge afterwards. My advice, get it to go.

    The egg taco has 2 to 3 eggs in it. The bean taco is smaller but just as filling.
