Default Breakfast Taco vs. Breakfast Burrito

I am beginning to think this is a Geographic point for Texans.

I stopped into the local catch-all this morning and asked for "2 Breakfast Tacos" because that's what they have always been called. If I am making breakfast for the crew, and it get's mentioned, it is always "Hey Dad, how about some Breakfast Tacos?"

The lady @ the counter this morning was completely perplexed - she asked me to repeat 3 times. Then said, "Oh, you were confusing me...you want a Breakfast Burrito?"

Geographically speaking, I am from Far West and Central TX, but live N DFW. I guess in the North they are Burritos?

So all that to say - Useless ATC Question coming - what are they to you? Brkfst Tacos? Brkfst Burritos?

Hispanic from S Texas here (Corpus Christi). To me, it's just breakfast. Lol but I've never heard them being referred to as "burritos." It's either "taquitos" or "breakfast tacos".

To me a taco is typically on a corn tortilla, always folded and usually smaller than a burrito which is rolled and almost always on a flour tortilla.

If the tortilla is left open they are tacos. If the tortilla is wrapped up closed it's a burrito. Now I'm hungry.

It is not limited to geography, it's universal.

If the contents are rolled into a tortilla, it is a burrito. If the contents are placed into a folded tortilla, it is a taco.

to me, a burrito is just fully wrapped whereas a taco has the tortilla just folded over the fillings.

Burrito is a meal in one and is completely wrapped 360 by tortilla.
Tacos are rolled or folded but not 360 and you need multiple to make a meal unless in the RGV, I have seen taquitos down there that you could barely get through just one.

never seen a breakfast taco in my life, but I have seen plenty of breakfast burritos

wrapped up is a burrito
folded is a taco

I personally have never seen a breakfast taco but that doesn't mean they don't exist

On a side note, if you happen to be a virgin and you would like to be screwed for cheap, go to Taco Cabana and order a breakfast taco or breakfast burrito. Brace yourself.

Growing up in the RGV, they are tacos. A burrito is a fried tortilla wrapped thing that you get at Stripes (also a great place for breakfast tacos). Here in DFW, I've heard breakfast tacos erroneously called burritos.

Around here in League City/Galveston area Taco and Burrito refer to the size.

Want a small one, order a Breakfast Taco. Want a big one, order a Breakfast Burrito.

Tacos vs. Burritos: The Great Breakfast Debate

It is time to end this great debate once and for all. It's the infamous debate that really only gets fellow San Antonions and Austinites riled up when we are faced with West Texans: Breakfast tacos vs. breakfast burritos. To some they may think that they are one in the same, but I am here to tell you that you are wrong. They are two completely different breakfast foods. Take a look at this breakdown.

The Burrito

A breakfast burrito is when various ingredients (bacon, egg, cheese, salsa, potatoes, etc.) are all combined together and rolled up into an oversized tortilla. A burrito is a complex thing, and there is a lot that goes into these guys. Also, in the way that the burrito is rolled up, you are bound to get a mouth-full of tortilla on that first bite.

The Taco

A breakfast taco on the other hand is simple yet beautiful. Instead of having a lot of different stuff mixed together into one being, you instead just have the basics. When you order a "bacon and egg" it's just that: bacon and egg. You don't have to worry about there being salsa, cheese, etc. unless you order it in addition. You get exactly what you ask for, without any surprises. Also, since a standard size tortilla is used and is simply folded over, there is no overpowering presence of tortilla when you take a bite. You are able to have more of the stuff inside, and less of the overpowering tortilla.

So that, my friends, is the difference between the two. They are not the same, so be sure to distinguish what you are wanting. However, if you call a breakfast burrito a taco, beware, because I am sure that a fellow San Antonian and Austinite will be quick to correct you.

I've always called them breakfast tacos. My girlfriend is from Midland and calls them breakfast burritos, I'm slowly breaking her of that habit Seems like north of I-20 everything is just a little different.

The two Mexican cafe's that I get my breakfast at both have them listed as burritos on the menu. If you ask for a breakfast taco you will get some confused looks. Btw, they are both owned and operated by Mexicans.
