Taco Joint will open soon at the old Sol’s spot at Mockingbird-Abrams, reports Nancy Nichols on D’s SideDish blog. Like some of the other restaurant news of late, this won’t exactly be in Lake Highlands, but it’s close enough that we can care.
This will be the second location for the restaurant that serves up cheap and tasty tacos, plus migas, potatoes, burritos and such. Sounds familiar. Wonder how it will impact Fuzzy’s, right across the street. Like Fuzzy’s, Taco Joint will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus beer and margaritas, beginning early (like 7 a.m.), seven days a week.
Really, I don’t know if it’s possible to have too much of that. Is it?
Here’s what our reporter Rachel Stone wrote about the existing Taco Joint on Peak (and see the diagram up left for our take on posh versus authentic tacos):
Taco Joint doesn’t really have posh tacos. It’s just that they’re much more Tex than Mex. Taco Joint offers ground beef tacos on flour tortillas with yellow cheese and salsa that is delicious, if mild. Just like mom used to make. The best meal at this Austin-centric place is breakfast — migas, fajita and egg tacos, and the “great gordo”, a giant breakfast burrito with bacon, eggs, potatoes and cheese. 911 N. Peak, 214.826.8226.
