Taco Summit: Mayor surveys city’s breakfast taco scene

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell declared his fondness for breakfast tacos in a recent Reddit “Ask Me Anything.”

When he was asked which was his favorite, he replied, “Taco Shack or Taco Cabana. All breakfast tacos are good.”

This spurred a lot of discussion about the subject, so Leffingwell met up with Mando Rayo, one of the authors of Austin Breakfast Tacos: The Story of the Most Important Taco of the Day. Rayo taught the mayor some more about Austin’s breakfast taco scene and brought a variety of tacos from the Veracruz All Natural food truck, which is usually stationed in East Austin.

After trying a migas taco, Leffingwell said it was one of the best he’d ever had—but he still planned to go through the Taco Cabana drive-thru frequently.
