Daily, 7am-10pm

The brothers Garcia have been turning out some of the better interior Mexican food in Austin, based on their grandmother's original recipes, for years. Watch the wizards whip up your handmade corn tortillas while you sip the excellent margaritas. Don't miss the chile relleno with pecan cream sauce, the lamb cooked in cactus leaf, or, for breakfast, the huevos machacado (with dried, spiced beef) or Curra's (with carne guisado). The menu is heavy on seafood, and has many vegan choices. Always a crowd -- well-deserved popularity.
