Week 1 – The Top Five Tacos in Corpus Christi

1. Taquitos Mi Tierra

If you’re craving some delicious mini tacos you might have to call 361-355-2163 first to find out where this Taco Truck is posted up! You can also find them most Thursdays at the Lazy Beach Brewery along with some other weekly spots. Follow them on Facebook for more details and photos of their deliciousness.

2. Southside Barbacoa

Barbie what?!?! If you’re new to South Texas the word “Barbacoa” might be confusing and that’s ok… all you have to know is that it might be one of the most delicious parts of the cow…wait what?! You know sometimes its better to not ask questions… and that Southside Barbacoa in Corpus Christi, Texas serves it up right. Visit this spot which was recently featured in “The Tacos Of South Texas” book and see for yourself.

3. Papi Chulos

According to local Taco Expert Gerald Flores you gotta try the Machacado from this Corpus Christi, Texas Cantina! Don’t worry I had to google it too… “Machacado”  is a dish which consists of shredded dry beef that is scrambled with eggs. Its name means “shredded with eggs” in Spanish. So if you’re craving something super tasty… go check out Papi Chulo’s Mexican Restaurant & Cantina.

4. Jefe’s Mobile Cafe

By now I’m positive you’re craving some Tacos and I’m sorry…but next on our list is only gonna make that craving stronger. One of my personal favorites in town is Jefe’s Mobile Cafe…and luckily for your taste buds they’re not just serving up Tacos… if you visit them you gotta try the…

Corpito Fries
Pastor Street Tacos
Drunken Mac N Cheese
Churro Sundae
Loaded Nachos
The Hangover Burger

5. Sonny’s Barbacoa

So here’s my story with Sonny’s… about a year ago I had some clients who were buying a home and at the closing table we were talking about breakfast… they mentioned they just ate here and probably eat at this restaurant 3 times a week… when they said that my eyes must of bulged because they looked at me like I was crazy…mostly because I told them I had always seen it but never tried it…

I promised them right then and there I would try it soon. It was only a month later when I ran into them and told them I had ALREADY BEEN 5 TIMES since the recommend the place. I was hooked…. the easiest way to explain this place is that it tasted just how Grandma used to make us breakfast. The tortillas fresh and fluffy, the cheese perfectly melted every time, the corn tortillas in the migas were super crispy, beans you can drink and of course… barbacoa that always leaves you satisfied.

In Corpus Christi, Tx…. home of the breakfast taco…there’s a lotta places to get tacos…but hands down my favorite is Sonny’s Barbacoa.

That does it for this weeks #topfivecc and I want to give a huge THANK YOU to local taco pro Gerald Flores from TACO GEAR for helping me create this list! If you haven’t checked out his stuff yet and you love tacos… do you even really LOVE tacos?

Until next week…
