71. Wake Up For Barbacoa And Big Red At Mimi's



Levántense, muchachos! We're getting barbacoa from the family-owned shop that adds a little puro to the North Central area of town. Tucked away next to a Vietnamese place and Shipley's Donuts, Mimi's Barbacoa Tacos Tamales y Más is the go-to spot for folks hoping to nail their Sunday morning with breakfast tacos, tasty tamales, fresh tortillas, house-made salsas and barbacoa by the pound, regular (with all sorts of good stuff) or all meat, available to go or eat-in. Step inside the teensy shop and be ready with your order, the system mildly resembles Seinfeld's Soup Nazi — there's no dilly-dallying here. The spot comes alive when filled with regulars and newcomers. 10918 Wurzbach Rd., (210) 558-6008
