Freebirds World Burrito

515 S. Congress, 512/462-3512
Stratocaster-sized burritos in a rock & roll environment are the stock-in-trade at this joint. This is big-boy eating heaven: You don't have to include the veggie stuff you don't want, and there's no way you can walk away hungry.

El Alma Cafe y Cantina

Chef Alma Alcocer-Thomas' take on casual Mexico City cuisine is approachable, affordable, and delicious.

El Mercado South

Mystery Mondays are the staple at this Tex-Mex restaurant – perfect for those avoiding nearby South Congress chaos. Every week, Christine Albert and Bill Kirchen join a surprise guest in what usually turns out to be an unrehearsed yet can’t-be-missed jam session loved by locals. During the rest of the week, the all-ages (and dog-friendly) patio stage is frequented by country, blues, and rock & roll staples in the Austin scene.
