El Gringo & the Red House
Amid lounging hipsters, comfort food with a sophisticated spin
Food Review  January 12, 2007, by Virginia B. Wood
"...The savvy entrepreneurs with an eye for turning derelict Manor Road properties into hot restaurant attractions have gained knowledge and confidence with each new venture. Success at El Chile Cafe & Cantina in 2004 and at its younger sibling, the taco shack El Chilito, taught Carlos Rivero and his partners the value of protected outdoor dining spaces and the advisability of providing a waiting area for eager patrons..."

El Borrego de Oro No. 2

El Taquito Supremo
Mini-chain vies for taco domination
Food Story  July 31, 2014, by Mick Vann
"...I've tried almost all of the many taco options ($2-2.25) and they are all fantastic, especially the al pastor – the pork-laden, pineapple-crowned trompo (Spanish for "spinning top", which the vertical rotisserie resembles) spins majestically in plain view. The meat has a nice chile-glazed richness, perfect when you add some of the grilled chile strips from the salsa bar..."

The El Paso Connection
Longtime Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival Contest judges Henry and Fred Alvarado and Carlos Contreras
Food Story  August 24, 2007, by MM Pack
"...What do a graphic artist, an occupational therapist, and a state information technology auditor have in common? Quite a bit, as it turns out. Brothers Henry and Fred Alvarado and their compadre Carlos Contreras grew up together in El Paso; they all moved to Austin in the early 1980s; they love to cook, eat, and party together (especially if chiles and premium tequilas are involved); and as Hot Sauce Contest preliminary judges since the first contest in 1991, they each have tasted about 4,500 hot-sauce entries (see box at right). A Hot Sauce Family History..."

Food Review  November 4, 2011, by Virginia B. Wood
"...The steep lot on the southwest corner is perpetually for sale and seems to defy development, but the small, flat-roofed building just across Dawson has a new tenant that could finally redeem it. Carlos Rivero's restaurant group tried both its El Chilito and El Chile Cafe concepts in the spot before creating a completely new restaurant called El Alma Cafe y Cantina, with accomplished local chef Alma Alcocer-Thomas as executive chef and partner..."
