Breakfast Tacos May Become Texas’ Newest Official Food

Texas has become known for their delicious and savory breakfast tacos. According to MySanAntonio, a state representative has filed a resolution to make the beloved dish Texas’ official breakfast food.

Rep. Stephanie Klick, R-Fort Worth submitted the paperwork last week. In it, she cites the food’s steady growth in popularity as a reason for the official honor.

“The breakfast taco has become a signature Texas food on a par with barbecue and chicken-fried steak, and it is enjoyed by countless residents of the Lone Star State each morning as the perfect way to start their day,” the filing reads.

Although the dish has become a signature of Texas, the exact origins of the dish has sparked a debate between those in Austin and San Antonio. We’ll leave you to decide which city really has the best breakfast tacos around.
