Breakfast Tacos in Aggieland

Garpez, in the Shell station at Harvey Rd. and the Highway 6 bypass, College Station, TX  77840; open from 7am to 2pm only.

(They have a new location on Wellborn Rd., just north of Stotzer Parkway and Cafe Eccell, which is open from 10am-10pm.  qb didn’t try it.)

The reviews over at Urbanspoon and Yelp are right on the money.  This is good stuff.  There’s no machine back there pressing little balls of dough into tortillas; they really are hand-rolled and tender, if a little small.  For breakfast:  the carne guisada taco has a chunky stew of savory beef; fresh salsa has a bit of a kick; and the basic egg-potato-bacon taco is perfect.  Two tacos for about $4.  Friendly and small, in a convenience store.  Wish it opened earlier in the day, but it’s worth the wait.
