This spacious, no-frills Austin institution serves classic Tex-Mex breakfasts, lunches, and dinners daily. Look for the fresh homemade tortillas, crispy tacos, and slow-roasted beef ribs.
The offerings from Jae Kim’s brick and mortar "Home of the Kimchi Fries" should be as yummy as that of the popular trucks. The menu is slightly different, sporting Kimchi fried rice balls containing rice, cheddar, Monterey Jack, nori, and gochujang, but retains plenty of crowd favorites.
This taqueria with a goofy sense of humor turns out superior food from a mesquite-fired grill. Be sure to try the Pirata, with smoked Angus sirloin, sea salt, cheese, and avocado.
A little-known jewel serves a mix of Interior Mexican and more conventional Mexican fare. The tastes are authentic, the prices are very reasonable, and the portions are huge.
Dinner at this location of the popular Tex-Mex happy-hour haven doesn't disappoint, especially after a few of the reliable Mexican martinis.
Friendly service, generous portions at affordable prices, and solid renditions of traditional Tex-Mex favorites are sure to make this place a hit.
In a nondescript strip mall on West Anderson and MoPac you’ll find this always-bustling neighborhood favorite. A menu of Mexico-inspired comfort food includes short rib salpicon, mojo pollo, mashed potato-filled enchiladas, and a five-salsa sampler (the creamy Salsa X is a real showstopper).
Fresh ingredients, the patented Bad Ass BBQ Sauce, and a fun, casual atmosphere make this place a must-try. Plan early for the lunch hour when the line is out the door.
The vegetarian taco with perfectly grilled zucchini and summer squash is a favorite. Chicken is available in enchilada, chalupa, and fajita forms. If you're up early, the hearty breakfast tacos are a good to-go option.
Don't let the modest exterior fool you. The food exceeds expectations with great value for your money, superior quality, and culinary know-how.
This tiny yet first-class Mexican restaurant provides both sit-down and takeout meals, as well as exceptional, professional Mexican catering for your big event.
The queso here is made with poblanos, and the shrimp and crab chile rellenos comes with a pleasant surprise on top. For brunch, try Pork Carnitas Hash, a toothsome tangle of moist pork under a salsa verde.
Fresh sauces, rotisserie meats, and a friendly atmosphere make this a welcome addition to Austin Tex-Mex.
