Best Food On The Spot, Whichever Spot You Desire

Midnight Tacos

You just stumbled in from the bars. Or maybe you never left the house. Maybe you just sat on the porch and smoked a couple of big ones. Now you are STARVING. Short of swerving the car over to I-Hop or the Magnolia, what is a party boy/girl to do? Ahhhh... Meet Midnight Tacos, Austin's answer to San Francisco's Tacquerias. They have a permanant location on North Loop (across from Ararat and Forbidden Fruit, near Avenue F) but BETTER YET they have the Midnight Taco Trucks that will, no foolin', drive up to your house and prepare you a fresh Mexican Feast on the spot. Non-Commital Fajitas for Two (you only need eat them together, nothing else expected afterwards....), Sheldon's tacos, Vegeritos.... These guys can do no wrong and they're cute AND CHEAP, too. Home delivery on the weeknights from 7pm til 1 am. On the weekends until, dig this, 4 am. And the permanent location is a must-see too. Totally groovy -something between Haight-Ashbury and the Jersey Boardwalk.

100-B North Loop, 453-2200
