Not that Taco Joint isn't worth trying or shouldn't win a prize for "best name for a breakfast taco establishment." Green Spot on Buckner, however, deserves the award for "Best Breakfast Tacos." Green Spot always offers new options and loads their tacos with farm-fresh ingredients--from local squash to stewed meats (rabbit to boot) and the best eggs the Dallas area has to offer.
Best Breakfast Tacos - 2009
The Taco Joint
Ever since our college days in Austin, we've found Dallas severely lacking in the breakfast taco department. Sure, you can find them, but they rarely live up to the expectations one is burdened with after living in the Breakfast Taco And Live Music Capital of the World. The Taco Joint does the breakfast taco right, however, serving up eggs and cheese with bacon, sausage, potatoes, chorizo or beans on flour tortillas along with delicious homemade salsas that tickle the palate but don't annihilate your taste buds with heat. Most important, they serve them till 10:45 a.m. on weekdays and 2 p.m. on Saturdays, which makes them the perfect breakfast for late-rising, hung-over-and-on-the-go Observer writers.
