Veracruz All Natural

I recently discovered what may very well be my favorite tacos in town. I'd heard many raves about the charms of Veracruz All Natural, and finally made my way to their trailer down south for a late lunch one Sunday afternoon. It was well after 2:00 and I hadn't eaten anything all day, so I'm afraid my usual propensity for copious photo-taking was a little hampered. But don't let my lackluster photos dissuade you. These tacos are amazing, featuring fantastic tortillas (both flour and corn are housemade), flavorful fillings, and addictive sauces that almost make you wish the fillings were ever-so-slightly less flavorful, so as to justify more sauce usage.

The tacos run around $3ish apiece; an absolute steal. And the south location is conveniently located outside the lovely Radio Coffee & Beer, so you can order any number of caffeinated or adult beverages to complement your taco goodness. I fell madly in love with this white blueberry tea made by one of my favorite local companies, Zhi tea, as well as the sweet infuser pot it was served in.

Veracruz All Natural has quickly earned a spot on my shortlist for a freshly prepared, very reasonably priced meal. Enjoy it on Radio's patio while basking in this absolutely gorgeous fall weather, and you have the recipe for a perfect Austin meal.

    1. It totally would, Linda! It's a little bit more south than I prefer, and Radio is a little on the small side, but I'll drive for those tacos...maybe after you move we can hit them up!

  2. These tacos are my favorite. Their version of the Donna (Green) sauce is also impressive. The food preparation between the different trailers is also consistent. They take pride in their handmade tortillas. During SXSW they don't offer corn tortillas because they are so labor-intensive.

    1. I agree, Richard - TacoDeli's dona sauce is one of the main reasons I go there - so I was THRILLED to find a delicious version at Veracruz! Good to know that the different trailers are consistent. We need to all get food soon!
