Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

There’s a reason this tiny trailer in Bouldin Creek usually has at least a handful of people gathered around it, even on weekday mornings. El Primo is known beyond South Austin for its delicious breakfast tacos and friendly customer service. Be sure to order the house-made chorizo and egg taco, which comes with a plentiful stream of melted cheese running through it. The tortillas aren’t house-made, but they are griddled to perfection on the seasoned plancha, and the fresh and spicy homemade salsas are the real deal.
