El Taco Tejano

El Taco Tejano, 202 West Kingsbury, has the BEST Breakfast Tacos! And, this place - just like so many places in Seguin - is where one can meet up with friends and acquaintances - any morning of the week. The tacos are so good. The cooks and servers (who do double duty - take orders and serve!) are efficient and friendly. This is a great place!
A group of Chicano poets in San Diego have been meeting since 1994 and reading their free-form odes in taco shops from here to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, New York and back.

Why read poetry in taco shops, you ask? Simple, says Adolfo Guzmán López, one of the Taco Shop Poets founding members.
"Taco shops are the most democratic of institutions, where your standing in life -- whether you're rich or poor, black or white or brown- doesn't matter," Guzmán says. "Taqueros (taco makers) treat everyone the same and serve everyone the same."
