El Xolo Tacos is interested in showcasing old Mexica culture through traditional flavors, adding even more diversity to Austin, TX’s multicultural culinary scene. Their name and logo are a nod to Xoloitzcuintle, a Mexican dog breed that led people into the underworld according to Aztec mythology. It’s not just the name, however, that provides insight on Mexican culture. It’s the food, this truck serving up countless dishes packed with rich, authentic flavor.
Early risers can enjoy any number of classic Mexican breakfasts. Well-seasoned chorizo served up with farm fresh eggs? Yes, please. If you hit up El Xolo midday, there are tacos, quesadillas, and burritos galore. From a shrimp taco stuffed with crispy veggies sprinkled with cilantro to a steak burrito jam-packed with rice, beans, and sour cream, you definitely won’t leave hungry. Don’t forget to nab a cup of Mexican hot chocolate or cafe de olla for dessert. Mouth watering? Of course it is, so get out there and find El Xolo Tacos roaming through the street. If you fall in love with the fare, have ‘em out to cater your next event. This Xolo will forgo the underworld and instead guide your taste buds to some great food.
Migas Egg & Cheese — Eggs and tortilla strips seasoned with an aromatic mix of spices and smothered in a tangy blend of cheeses. Yum.
I wanted to represent something traditional from Mexican culture. There’s a very cool story about the Xoloitzcuintli. It’s a dog from Aztec mythology.
The time I’ve been working, actually. My experience. I’ve been working awhile in food trucks, so that’s where I learned to cook.
If I work very hard during this time, in the future I’ll be able to give my loved ones what they deserve, a good life, and get to spend some time with my family.
My family. They always seemed happy with my decisions. And that’s enough for me to make the decisions I wanted. They’ll support this. It’s been everything for me.
The Xolo’s related to Day of the Dead, so I’ve worked with events related to that organized by the Mexican Culture Museum. The biggest one was the Viva La Vida parade.
I like the tacos al pastor. Here, it’s not very easy to find, the pastor with the pineapple. We put it with the pineapple and that’s like a meal for the people.
