Eldorado Cafe

Open less than a year, this homey, funky Tex-Mex comfort food joint has Austin cred out the yin-yang. Chef/owner Joel Fried pairs his creative spin on classic combo plates (mashed potato enchiladas, anyone?) with loving gestures toward Austin’s culinary history in the form of specials like the Lost Amis and the Cocina del Sur. We’re obsessed.
