    Breakfast spread was incredible. A hangovers dream spread. Friendly staff ordered for us and nailed it.

    When Bobby Vasquez passed away, Austin lost one of its greats as well as the phenomenal Tamale House #3. But his nieces and nephews have opened this spot, and the tamales are just as crave-able. Read more

    Delicious breakfast tacos. And the Mexican iced coffee... I usually order 2 like it's one each for my boyfriend and me, but really they are both for me. So good.

    The third generation of Tamale House founder Carmen Vasquez runs this Eastside spot, which boasts more seating and a hipper vibe. The migas with cheese is a surefire hangover cure.

    One of the best bets for breakfast and lunch on East 6th, the restaurant also regularly hosts innovative pop-up dinners. [Eater 38 Member]

    This spot is tucked on a patio between what used to be Graze and some railroad tracks and offers the same famous $1.25 breakfast tacos. Read more

    Super hipster, super awesome. Two breakfast tacos for under $5 is unbeatable. To drink, get a chicha morada - super refreshing and a great start to your day!

    My favorites are the guacamole chalupa and the chicken mole tacos! Everything is good here though and the service is phenomenal. They are long time east siders too!

    Entrance & patio is on 5th street, with a good view of some pretty badass graffiti.
