What you'll do

We'll eat our way through the Austin taco scene, visiting 4 different taco spots throughout the afternoon. We'll hit spots only locals know about and at each stop I'll fill you in on everything I've learned about tacos in Austin over the years; differences between handmade and factory made tortillas, origins of some of the classic taco fillings, and how to spot a legit taco spot. You'll also be given the opportunity (if you want!) to try some less common fillings, like cabeza (beef cheeks) and lengua (tongue). You'll see neighborhoods of Austin that you might not normally see, getting the full Austin experience through tacos! From traditional street tacos from different regions of Mexico to authentically Austin barbecue tacos, we'll try as many tacos as we can! Keep in mind: we'll be outside most of the time, so dress appropriately! We'll be tacoing rain or shine.
