Rueben Rodriguez is Austin's grand master of the chile salsa -- of all types. Botanita's is the home of the famous chip tower, surrounded by veggie escabeche and five different salsas. Long a favorite of the interior-Mex crowd, Botanita's has been around since '92. Many seafood items, excellent breakfast, great mole and homemade tamales, and some of the best enchiladas in town. The perfect plate? Smoked chicken enchiladas with chipotle sauce, lime-cilantro rice, borracho beans, and salad with jicama -- yummm.
