Last Day Standing: Maria’s Taco Xpress

Sad day for Zilker - we are losing a long time friend and amazing piece of the ‘hood. I can remember waking up to migas tacos at the original incarnation of taco Xpress when I moved to zilker in 1997. What an iconic establishment Maria has run for all these years and multiple iterations. Today we say goodbye. As a silver lining the employees are starting a food truck which will serve much the same food (but no margs at this time).

Stop by. Grab some delicious. And say farewell.

Some favorites:

Al Pastor taco add guac and cheese.

Chicken fajita taco add guac

Chiliquiles add extra egg, no potatoes sub grilled onions and peppers, all green sauce.

So many good memories :slight_smile:

So sad. Another Austin institution bites the dust. But we have to pay for that train!

Well to be fair they were facing a lot of issues, not just property taxes - though that didn’t help. One could also argue if there was a train stop by Taco Xpress there would be a lot more business for them!
