Three meals a day during SXSW for less than $40
The migas tacos at Veracruz All-Natural Tacos at 1704 E. Cesar Chavez St. are Matthew Odam’s favorite in town.

Sisters Maritza and Reyna Vazquez’s Veracruz All Natural at 1704 E. Cesar Chavez St. turns out some of the best tacos of any trailer in Austin. (The migas is currently my favorite taco in town.) Soon, they’ll be serving some of the best tacos from any restaurant in town. The sisters plan to open Veracruz All Natural brick-and-mortar restaurant at 2301 E. Cesar Chavez in East Austin later this year. The restaurant, which will also have a juice bar, will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The Veracruz, Mexico natives opened their flagship trailer, situated between a store that sells piñatas and the cocktail bar Weather Up, in 2009, and a second trailer in the trailer food court at East Sixth and Waller streets in 2011. The second trailer moved to the parking lot of the Grackle earlier this year. The sisters, who moved to Austin from Veracruz, Mexico, in 1989, got their start in East Austin with a fruit and sno-cone stand in 2008. Both trailers will remain open in some capacity once the restaurant opens.
