Three cheers for Taco Haven!
The Food Network Magazine today announced each state’s best restaurant breakfast. The popular family eatery on South Presa St., Torres Taco Haven, won the honors for Texas with their Reggie’s Weekend Special.
Olga Torres, member of the family that has owned Taco Haven for some 40 years, says the special is, in fact, one of the most popular items on the menu.
For the bargain price of $7.50, they’ll load you up with two huevos rancheros, refried beans, potatoes rancheros (potatoes with onions, tomatoes and chiles), 2 cheese quesadillas and a side of barbacoa (homemade, all cheek meat). And, of course, your choice of homemade corn or flour tortillas.
Does anyone eat all this food?
“Oh, yes. We’re amazed that they do,” said Torres. “Mostly it’s men, but some women can put it away, too.”
While the special is termed “weekend,” it is now available all day, every day.
“That’s just because it got so popular,” said Torres.
“We were very excited that they came in and picked us,” said Torres. Other family members at the restaurant are Reggie Torres, Jerry Torres and Elida Torres.
Taco Haven, at 1032 S. Presa St. and 3119 S. Gevers, is open Monday through Saturday, 6 a.m. – 4 p.m. On Sundays, their hours are 7 a.m. – 2 p.m.
