Food Network has confirmed what many Austinites have known for years: Veracruz All Natural makes one of the best tacos around. On a recent episode of Top 5 Restaurants, hosts Sunny Anderson and Geoffrey Zakarian declared Veracruz's signature migas taco one of the top five tacos in America.
The migas taco — or as Food Network calls it, the "ultimate breakfast taco" — is the fourth best taco in the U.S. The fixin's are important, but the show gives major props to Veracruz All Natural's homemade tortillas. The fresh blankets hold scrambled eggs, crisp vegetables, rich cheese, and the all-important slice of avocado for an easy $3 a pop.
Veracruz is the only breakfast taco on the show; it's also the only spot from Texas to make the cut. The top honor goes to the fish taco from Ricky's Fish Tacos in Los Angeles. The carnitas taco from Carnitas Urupuan in Chicago, the al pastor taco from Los Guachos Taqueria in Columbus, and the carne asada taco from La Taqueria in San Francisco are also featured.
Veracruz All Natural has evolved from a small trailer into one of the most talked-about taco meccas in town. You can score the signature migas taco at three locations around Austin: Cesar Chavez Street, Radio Coffee & Beer in South Austin, and the East Side Fillin' Station.
