East Austin staple Porfirio’s Tacos will close its door in the coming weeks. The restaurant at 1512 Holly St. announced on Facebook that it will close August 30 after 32 years in business. Porfirio’s says it has no plans to relocate.
Below is what former Statesman critic Mike Sutter had to say about their humble breakfast taco in 2010.
“It’s nothing but smoky beans and commercial-grade yellow cheese on a soft flour tortilla.” the Statesman’s Mike Sutter wrote in 2010. “But out of 40-some tacos I ate with Mando Rayo of Taco Journalism last year, this is the one I still crave.”
