Number 50: Taco Monterrey at Pepe's Taco Villa

You can find breakfast burritos seemingly everywhere in the Valley, but where can you find a good taco that you'd want to munch in the morning?

Head to Pepe's Taco Villa, a nearly 30-year-old institution serving great cheap eats on West Camelback Road. Here, the Taco Monterrey is a house specialty, and it's so good you'll find yourself craving it at any time of the day.

A big homemade flour tortilla is the foundation for a flavorful egg scramble of dried beef, tomato, chile, and onion. A tiny, two-bite street taco this is not. This is the kind of hearty a.m. nosh that goes well with a cup of coffee and a dash of hot sauce. It's also a primo hangover remedy. Take one taco and call me in the afternoon.
