They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and when it comes to breakfast, that certainly seems to be the case. Morning meals in the Lone Star State are all about supersized cinnamon rolls, hearty Southern classics like biscuits and gravy, and, above all, the breakfast taco. The concept is simple but delicious — and thanks to Ladybird Taco, it has finally made its way east to Birmingham.

Ladybird Taco, a breakfast and lunch restaurant specializing in — you guessed it — tacos, got its start in Nashville in June 2020. Almost three years later, in February 2023, Ladybird debuted a second location in Birmingham. Though Nashville is home base for Ladybird Taco, the idea for the restaurant originated in Austin, where longtime musician and Nashville native Gabe Scott grew his love for breakfast tacos. After years of touring in the state and dining on breakfast tacos whenever he pleased, he found himself missing his morning ritual when he returned home to Nashville. Determined to fill the void, he partnered with Andrew Wisenhart and Ben Edgerton, who owned several restaurant concepts in Austin, to bring a taste of Texas to Tennessee.
