Want unique? Share tacos with 50,000 neighbors at 4 a.m.

Sure, you say you love breakfast tacos, but those declarations are meaningless until you demonstrate the lengths you're willing to go for some free chorizo con huevos. Drag your butt out of bed at 4 a.m. next winter to wait in line at the annual Cowboy Breakfast. Every year, more than 30,000 breakfast tacos (along with 5,000 sausage wraps, 8,000 biscuits 5,000 pastries and 15,000 cups of coffee) are served in the early morning hours to kick off the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. Yes, breakfast tacos are both inexpensive and ubiquitous in San Antonio. But when you brave the cold in the Cowboys Dance Hall parking lot with as many as 50,000 fellow early birds, you're showing your breakfast taco that you don't take its deliciousness for granted. 3030 NE Loop 410, cowboybreakfast.com
