At the edge of downtown, located at 900 w 10th and wedged between Shoal Creek and a used car dealership, sits the home of Austin’s best breakfast tacos – The Screaming Goat.  I’ve driven past the house, built in 1935, dozens of times.  One morning last week I made a point to check this place out.

There is plenty of parking on the street or around back.  When you walk in you are greeted to another example of Austin’s terrific adaptive reuse house-to-restaurant conversions.

You order from the counter.  I had my usual – 2 x breakfast tacos (bacon and egg, b/c I keeps it real).  Three minutes later the tacos were delivered to my table.  The quality of the food is very fresh and made to order.

On my way out I noticed this tub of cold beers, which leads me to my only complaint and that is there is no outdoor seating to enjoy them.

  1. I think there IS outdoor seating – its in the shaded parking lot out back…

    haven’t tried the breakfast tacos yet – but their other food is just ok…i keep going back hoping to be impressed.

  2. Something about restaurants in rehab-ed houses….makes the atmosphere so cozy.
