Foodventures in DFW: Taco Joint in Addison

I’ve been hunting good breakfast tacos in the Dallas Fort Worth area for a while and I finally found my stop.

I love me a good breakfast taco. If a day is going to be a perfect 10, it will usually start with me having a few breakfast tacos and a cup of coffee before I start my day of writing at Shacknews. Since I moved to the Dallas Fort Worth area, I’ve been trying a few different places, and while they’ve been okay, nothing quite hit me like my favorite places back in the San Antonio area… Until now. I finally found the place that checks all my boxes. It’s Taco Joint in Addison.

This may come as a surprise, but Taco Joint specializes in tacos. Wild, I know. They have an okay menu at first glance for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but it’s the breakfast tacos that interest me, and here is where Taco Joint kind of knocks it out of the park. They have the usual suspects I want out of breakfast taco options: potato, egg, cheese, chorizo, sausage, ham, fajita, bacon, beans (refried and black). You can even choose if your taco is on corn or flour tortillas, always nice to see.

Their chorizo is particularly one of my favorite things because they do it in a way I’ve never seen anyone else do: They sometimes serve the taco with the full chorizo sausage in it. Paired with egg and cheese, it provides a delightfully chewy texture not unlike spicy, smoked sausage jerky and I love it, especially with their smoky chipotle salsa. They also do something else pretty delightful. One of their specialty tacos features either spicy pork or spicy fried chicken and eggs. Cue the jokes about taking the egg out of the chicken and putting the chicken in the eggs, but their chicken is freaking delicious and goes great in a breakfast taco.

 

 

They also have a delightful array of condiments. I mentioned the smoky salsa above which is my favorite, but they also have good regular red salsa, pico de gallo, and jalapeno ranch. I’m often in a mood for something different and having all these options for fillings and condiments at my disposal makes me a happy TJ.

The verdict? I think I have pretty good tastes when it comes to good breakfast tacos and Taco Joint in Addison fits the bill for me in nearly every way. It’s fast, it’s relatively inexpensive, it’s decent quality, and the variety lets me go with a few favorites or something entirely different without generally ever feeling disappointed. If you’re looking for a good breakfast taco stop in DFW, this one might be well worth your time. Do you have a favorite breakfast taco joint I should know about? Let a taco bro know!

        I usually try to do better, but it's hard to make a breakfast taco wrapped in tin foil look presentable lol. My sincere apologies.

      Back in my USMC days, I used to treat myself to some awesome chorizo filled breakfast tacos and burritos at a little taco shop in Oceanside CA. They really hit the spot after a night of partying in Tijuana.

      I would love to check out Taco Joint, but sadly it seems they don't have any locations near me in the Fort Worth / HEB / NRH area.

      Seriously though, how many Taco Joint locations does Dallas need? Spread the love a little please! https://thetacojoint.com/#locations

      That place is pretty good!

      I'm not a regular breakfast eater these days, so it's been a while since I had a go-to spot.

      There are like three taco places on my corner though, so I'm never left wanting.
