    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

    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

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

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

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

    If you're feeling extra hungry order Orlando's Plate. It has a little bit of everything, and tastes delicious!

    Get here before 11am for breakfast tacos. For some reason they stop serving then after that. Insane!

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

    If you get a Coke (which you should), the bottle opener is on the side of the counter just to the left of the cashier.
