8120 Research Blvd. Ste. 104B + 512/419-7554
7901 Cameron Rd., Suite 5C + 512/719-5515
This outpost of the popular Eastside spot serves the same great pastries, soups, and entrées that you love. Save room for dessert – the cakes are moist perfection. Read our review.
13500 Galleria Cir., Bee Cave + 512/441-9000
1201 E. Sixth + 512/382-1189
Has many loyal fans who stop in for excellent fare. The pork tenderloin is amazing, and so is the beef, but you have to try the daily special, too. Read our review.
1201 E. Sixth + 512/382-1189
15200 FM 1825, Pflugerville + 512/990-3121
Just half a mile east of I-35, you'll find authentic Colombian flavors in freshly prepared beef, chicken, and tilapia dishes.
1614 E. Seventh + 512/495-9425
Go here for wonderful Salvadoran cuisine, as well as Tex-Mex favorites. The tamales are lighter than air. Read our review.
7901 Cameron #4 + 512/832-5331
Try the icy, sweet caipirinha, the house specialty made from cachaça (cane sugar rum), lime, and sugar, then delve into steaks, grilled meats, and empanadas, as well as lesser-known Argentine favorites such as matambre, a flank steak pinwheeled with spinach, carrots, and egg. Read our review.
3411 Glenview + 512/323-5177
This cozy, comfortable place serves Mexican and Salvadoran specialties. We recommend the fried plantains, banana-leaf tamales, and pupusas.
642 Calles + 512/474-7749
This locally owned Brazilian steak house boasts a relaxed, fine-dining atmosphere and the only Brazilian wine list in town. Read our review.
10000 Research + 512/345-5600
Take one look at the massive ribs and open-flame rotisserie as you walk in the door and you'll understand this is a carnivore's paradise. The salad bar is pretty terrific, too.
309 E. Third + 512/472-0220
The large indoor and outdoor dining spaces dwarf this chain's menu, a middling mixture of Salvadoran and Tex-Mex dishes. The standouts are Gloria's Super Special and the Mar y Tierra. At least the drinks are cheap and pack a wallop, and the service is excellent.
3309 Esperanza Crossing #100 + 512/833-6400
300 W. Sixth + 512/236-1795
6001 Airport Blvd., Highland Mall + 512/323-5404
This South American newcomer is already attracting regulars. Meat lovers will swoon over the parrilla gaucha of sausage, steak, and pork ribs.
4800 Burnet Rd. + 512/458-1100
Offers Tex-Mex dishes as well as Brazilian cuisine, such as its version of the national dish, feijoada. The daily specials shouldn't be missed.
2809 San Jacinto + 512/473-9988
This terrific tapas bar is truly a neighborhood spot. It's a good value, you can always get a table, and you can park. Menu items change with the seasons, but you can always count on a crudo of the day, as well as a few nightly specials. Read our review.
519 W. Oltorf St. + 512/487-1569
