Did You Know About This Secret Breakfast Burrito Spot in Maine?
As I'm writing this to you right now, I'm eating one of their breakfast burritos on the side and it's magical. Let me put you on to your new favorite breakfast spot: Tic Taco.
This is nothing more than a little Mexican-themed window located on the bottom floor of One City Center in downtown Portland that is family-run and open to the public.
They sell $5 freshly made breakfast burritos daily until they sell out, and let me tell you, they sell out QUICK, so it feels like a little treat when you do get to grab one.
The best part? Aside from their affordable fresh breakfast? They also are a Mexican takeout spot, and from everything I hear it's a hidden gem.

"I've been going to this place since I was a freshman in high school. We're talking 35 years. The food is great. Their burritos are GIGANTIC and they are very reasonably priced. The staff is really nice-always greeting me with the biggest smile every time I visit."

"This is a really solid mexican food lunch spot. Everything is cooked to perfection, the veggie burrito bowl is huge and delicious and cheap"

"there aren't a lot of [good] places to go on my lunch break.....but TIC TACO IS A GAME CHANGER. they're the nicest people you'll come by in the food/service industry, and the food is amazing. you get probably more than you can even eat for 6-8 dollars. if i'm indecisive about lunch, tic taco will always get my business because i genuinely feel that they deserve it (and mexican food is the best, duh)"
If it's one thing I notice about a food joint, it's the customer service. You read it in the reviews, and I can absolutely confirm it's always a feel-good visit with the owners.
There are certainly a lot of great Mexican restaurants to try in Maine, but this is definitely one that's been flying under the radar. Have you been? Do you have a favorite?
