Seminole Heights has a new breakfast fix, and all you need is two bucks.

Located at 4414 N Nebraska Ave. in Seminole Heights, Rene’s Mexican Kitchen recently launched its breakfast menu stacked with loaded tacos ($2 each), burritos and chilaquiles (tortilla chips tossed in a dry chile salsa and topped with 
protein, crema, queso fresco, red onions and avocado.)

Taco and burrito options include steak, chorizo, slow-cooked beef brisket or bacon with eggs, as well as scrambled tofu, sun-dried tomatoes, plant-based mozzarella and baby spinach as the lone vegan and vegetarian option. All tacos are served with charred tomatillo green salsa and fiery brick-orange chile de árbol salsa.

Rene’s Mexican Kitchen now serves breakfast from 7 a.m.-11 a.m. Wednesday-Sunday every week. After those hours, the popular taco trailer switches to its normal lunch and dinner menu of chile rellenos, loaded chorizo and shrimp tacos and pork belly burritos, al many other Mexican specialties.

The food trailer is also getting ready for its exclusive Mexican Independence Day Dinner, happening next Saturday on Sept. 17. Ribeye steak tacos, Huitlacoche—a delectable corn fungus—chicharron prensado, smoked beef short-ribs and jumbo prawn tacos are on the one-night-only menu. These dishes are meant to highlight less mainstream ingredients in traditional Mexican cuisine— something that Chef Rene does quite well on his everyday menu. This ticketed event costs $68 per person and will take place at Southern Brewing & Winery, down the street from the Seminole Heights food trailer.
