10. Southside Barbacoa


A post shared by Gerald Flores (@geraldflores) on


Corpus Christi loves their barbacoa breakfast tacos, and Southside Barabacoa will have you there BEFORE the breakfast rush. If barbacoa is your taco of choice, check this taco haven out.

The best barbacoa in town.  The breakfast tacos are the best.  The best time to go is after the breakfast rush, because the place is very small.  I enjoy their migas and egg a la mexicana with a strip of bacon. - Fred B.
5894 Everhart Rd.
