Favorite Breakfast Tacos

I love the combination of cheap cheese, potatoes, serranos, sausage, and eggs that Maudie's serves up as "Pete's Tacos", my favorite breakfast version in town. I'm also a huge fan of Mi Madre's migas tacos and their sausage, egg, and cheese (they house make that sausage and it's great). I've had none that really top those, but am hoping to get some others under my belt. I also love Pinos for their homemade tortillas and such, but usually end up getting the posole and overeating chips and salsa.
Since I live very close to both of the S1st Torchy's locations, I tend to go there quite a bit for a quick fix. I think the breakfast tacos are my favorite thing on their menu. Nothing fancy, just the right level of grease for the classic eggs/bacon vibe, plus their salsa is excellent. I usually go for the Monk Special and The Wrangler.
Also, for me there's something weirdly perfect about Tacodeli's bean/potato/cheese on flour. Refried black beans with their odd, sort of mashed/whipped potatoes = delicious mush bomb. Doña sauce of course.
Taco Joint by campus on San Jacinto. Hands down. They make a more Sonoran style flour tortilla (thinner, crispier, dustier, and fattier, kind of yellow and translucent, almost like an Indian paratha) than the doughy white Texan kind.
Anyone know any place else that serves this kind of tortilla?
Serranos makes their own tortillas and I recall they were yellowish, flaky, dusty..translucent. i went once and that's all i remember.
El Nuevo Mexico on Anderson Ln and N. Lamar makes their own flour and corn tortillas, as well as totopos.
Jorge's would have fit your bill, i think.. but they're gone.
I need to try Taco Joint.. i've heard it's top quality
