Hi everyone! We just moved to SA two months ago and I'm wondering if you could steer us toward a good place to pick up a good breakfast burrito. We live on the far NW side-between Marbach and Potranco(inside 1604) but would be willing to travel for a truly exceptional burrito. This will be our first time trying one so hope to find something representative of the best SA has to offer. Any suggestions???

Thanks!

I don't know if I have ever seen a "breakfast burrito" at an authentic Mexican restaurant. I typically see breakfast burritos on fast food menus.
Is that what you are referring to?

In SA, we generally just go for Breakfast Tacos. It is my understanding that other places outside SA serve breakfast burritos. To tell you the truth, it’s the same thing only one is bigger. If you want big, (and good) try, Rolando’s Super tacos on Hildebrand north of I10. I would Mapquest because it’s easy to miss.

Well, in that case, I guess I mean Breakfast Tacos. Basically, anything that I can quickly grab and go. I suppose that means fast-food.

Something quick, Mama Margie’s has a drive through and the Taco’s would be kinda close to authentic considering how fast they are. I10 and Wurzbach.

Default Judy's

If you truly want an authentic experience try Judy's on Roosevelt just south of 410.

It may be way out of your way, there is no drive-thru (sit down and slow down), and it is usually crowded, but it is well worth it.

This "hole in the wall" cafe has excellent breakfasts (including tacos), great coffee, as well as great lunches (the gordita's are especially good).

I don't live in S. A. anymore but I always run into someone that I know at Judy's when I visit.

What can I say? It's an experience.

If you are ever near the airport check out the taco place on Isom Road. The best in the city for my money. A real hole in the wall, though.

Taqueria Jalisco Tequila on SW military between the AIA gate and the Lackland gate nearest the BX has outstanding breakfast tacos. My personal favorite is the barbacoa and the carne asada was one of the worst. That's just a personal opinion though. The place is easy to find, just look for a taco shop that looks like it used to be a Pizza Hut (because it did )

another good place is Tika Taco off Potranco outside 1604. I'm not sure if that's how you spell it, but it's not like the other Tika Taco places. It's more of a local place (for those of us that know about it) and all the food is great there.

Taco is folded, burrito is rolled. Either way, it tastes the same.

Default Btacos

Taco Ricos on Bandera and Mainland...it's tiny so be on the lookout (green and yellow paint). It's on the right if you're going toward town. They have other great items - at great prices - on their menu. Only open til 2 pm. Nice family owned business.
