Laredo will always fall on a "best of" breakfast taco list in Houston because it's consistent and it's tried and true. The evidence? A long line wrapped around the building. It's cafeteria-style walk-through line means you better know what you want when you get up there. Spicy potatoes, chorizo and eggs or barbacoa are some of our favorites. Always get the beans.
