Breakfast taco enthusiast declares undying love for Texas Honey Ham Company

It’s been about a month and a half since local favorite Texas Honey Ham Company reopened after a shocking fire forced its closure in March. Many are pretty used to the fact that the restaurant is back in business, but I am still excited. Now that my favorite breakfast spot is better than ever, I have visited on the upwards of three or more times a week. My name is Nikki and I am addicted to Texas Honey Ham.

Most of the staff knows my name or at least recognizes my face. Some even know my usual. Upon receiving my order on the opening day, co-owner Rob Siller said to me, “Some things never change.” After my first visit to THHC in 2011, I wasn’t sure if the whole “breakfast taco” thing was for me. I mean I really hate eggs, so what was I meant to do, eat a tortilla and some bacon? But one day it dawned on me that potatoes, cheese and bacon are some of the best foods out there, so why not make them into a taco? Three years later I still enjoy that taco and everything about the restaurant.

I love the atmosphere and the people — it’s not hard for me to see why everyone loves THHC, even if you don’t particularly like Texas-style Southern food. And now it’s harder not to enjoy THHC with more to relish with the new, renovated back room and a few more items to the already sumptuous menu. New items include chocolate chip pancakes and a pulled pork sandwich with vinegar-based marinade.

Some say that home is where the heart is, but I’d have to disagree and say home is where the stomach is.
