Cheap, awesome greasy breakfast tacos near the airport

Evening all,

Just wanted to report a new find on my recent frequent road trips back to Houston.

Exxon gas station on 71 just west of the airport and before you get to the Tollroad when leaving Austin- south side of the street and right next door to a DIY car wash.

Some of the best cheap, savory, fatty, grease rolling down your arm with every bite breakfast tacos I have ever had. Had egg and barbacoa on last trip, pork roast in BBQ sauce with rice this time around. Really good if you are in the mood for that kind of thing.

The meats are not very spicy, but most of the egg mixes have some fresh jalapeno in them. Go early, by around 8:30 most of the eggs are gone and getting on the dried out side. They do lunch too, but those selections are around in the morning as well with rice. Tacos made to order- everything under a heat lamp, not sure if prepared off site or not, and all the more reason to go early.

Tortillas okay- not bad, not mindblowing. But they are not the focus. This is all about the meat and grease- think of it as your favorite college foods as good as they can be.
