Paco's Tacos---Muy GOOD!

We headed out to get breakfast tacos at The Tamale House on Airport, my son in from Houston insisted. I myself am a fan of Mi Victoria but the kid said Tamale House so who was I to deprive him. We had to maneuver around the Livestrong Marathon and when we finally made it there, they were closed on Sundays! Turned out to be a great day for us. I remembered seeing Paco's Tacos on 51st street, across from Mueller airport (or what use to be Mueller airport) so we headed that way. The place is a nice dump, and the lady taking your orders was a princess. We all ordered our usual, egg, bacon cheese for the 3 men and egg and guacamole for my wife. The coffee was delicious and refills were free while we waited. We had no trouble getting a table at 10 in the morning. When our food was ready the princess brought them to the table with a mound of red sauce and what she called their "famous" green sauce. I was dubious of the green stuff, but one taste proved her right. Delicious must be synonomous with famous. The breakfast tacos were perfect. They were hot, overstuffed, and, well---perfect. The green sauce mixed with the red sauce made them, well---perfectly delicious! Even my wife couldn't stop saying how good they were. Its now noon and I had to share this with my friends on Chow. I still have that glow in my mouth and I'm thinking seriously of heading back over there for a nooner. Try them, your mouth will thank me and your stomach will thank you.
