Chef Alma Alcocer-Thomas' take on casual Mexico City cuisine is approachable, affordable, and delicious. Brunch includes Huevos Franceses, made with eggs and spinach resting on corn pudding; or Thomas' version of migas, called Huevos Revueltos. Throw down a Mimosa Feliz and don't miss the gorgeous views from the upstairs patio.

This Austin-style Tex-Mex joint has been family-owned since the Fifties. Try the cabrito, and stay for the mariachi trio that plays Thursdays through Saturdays.

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.
