Breakfast - San Antonio?

I'm new to the area and frustrated with having to search a board that's so general. I can't find anything pertinent to Breakfast in San Antonio, because it keeps giving me any restaurant in SA. So, if you will, steer me to posts you know that address this. Last week, after running my mom to the airport for an early flight, we were desperate for good breakfast tacos. We asked 6 people in the Central Market parking lot, and finally, finally, a cute young mom wearing large diamonds told us that we must try El Miligrito on N St. Mary. And THAT was the place! Incredible. (The 411 operator (we tried everything) recommended Taco Taco and Magnolia House. ) Help!

  1. Tito's in the King William area has good breakfast tacos as well. The Valencia Hotel does a great breakfast buffet spread with Mexican items prepared by Acenar (located in the hotel as well), but not sure what's your budget - they charge about $15 per person, though it's all you can eat.

    1. Breakfast tacos are ubiquitous in SA, hard to drive far without going by a taqueria. Quality varies slightly-It's really hard to mess up the basic concept. Pico and salsas are the major differences.
      If you're looking for something else, I'd definately reccomend Magnolia Pancake Haus (281/Bitters) or Sunday brunch at Cappy's on Broadway.

      1. Don't know the type of cuisine you are looking for - but if Mexican is Ok, make the drive to Don Pedros, 1526 Southwest Military Drive - make it on Sunday morning! Not breakfast tacos, but a full breakfast experience. You'll have fun.

        1. Magnolia Pancake Haus. Wonderful! You need to be there by 8:00 on Saturdays, otherwise expect to wait at least 30 minutes +++ for a table, but well worth it.
          There are sooo many taco places in town, too many to recommend. I suggest driving around early some morning in your neighborhood, & see where the vehicles are parked. Usually a pretty good indicator.
          Los Roberto's, on Bitters, west of 281, is a good taqueria, and is open 24 hours.
          Bandera Jalisco on Nacodogches, past O'connor is another good place. Although not open for breakfast, El Maracumbre on Austin Hwy & Harry Wurzbach is our favorite local Tex-Mex place. Hapy hunting!
