The only thing better than a taco is a breakfast taco. Delicious eggs, fresh-cut cilantro, and warm tortillas can fill every person on Earth with a euphoria unlike any other. Okay, maybe we’re exaggerating a little bit, but we really love breakfast tacos. Luckily, we live in San Antonio – home of some of the best tacos in America. Everyone has a different favorite spot in town, but we wanted to make a list of our five favorites. Check it out below.
Las Carretas had to make the list because their tacos and their pastries are some of the best in town. They use only fresh corn and flour tortillas and the smell of fresh bread hits you right when you walk in the door. If you want great tacos quickly, then definitely head to Las Carretas soon.
Taco Taco always makes the list for breakfast tacos. Bon Appetit even named their tacos as “Best Tacos in America.” So, as you can imagine, these tacos are pretty, pretty, pretty good. They serve the best corn tortillas in the state and you can taste the authenticity in every bite.
We love Ford trucks – and not just a little bit, we love them a ton. Without the invention of the pickup truck, who knows if life would ever be as good? Well, it wouldn’t; guaranteed. We found a really cool infographic that details some key point of the 1948 Ford F-1 pickup truck. We definitely recommend that you take some time to look over this information and learn about this history of such a great truck.

A stolen car or truck can definitely ruin your attitude and your day. Theft is a huge problem in Texas and throughout the United States and during warmer months, auto thefts increase. Studies show that a car is stolen once every 40 seconds. Texas is second on the list of states with the most vehicles stolen with California sitting at the top.
The Cadillac Escalade is the most targeted vehicle by thieves, but several pickup truck brands are also stolen with great frequency. Reports show that the Audi A6 is the least-stolen vehicle.
We get customers from all over the country, and it isn’t uncommon that people take this opportunity to make a vacation out of picking up their new truck.
