Tacos Antonia (Brisket)
In the land of carnitas, tacos al pastor and rolled tacos, one-of-a-kind tacos, like the Tacos Antonio platter, are scarce. Shredded, pot roast-like brisket is cradled in freshly fried tortillas coated with rust-hued seasoned salt. Shots of cabbage and avocado wedges fill in the role of garnishes, while grated Muenster anchors the Tacos Antonia to the borderland region. No matter the time of day, the platter, named after founder Lucy Lepe’s sister, is always available, and the closest you’re likely to get to breakfast tacos in burrito country. They’ll also do wonders for your karaoke game at the adjoining King’s X Bar, accessible through the back of the restaurant.
