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.
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.
Taking its name from a long gone 1970's music venue that was beloved in the neighborhood, this incarnation puts the food center stage. The tacos are based around family recipes on handmade tortillas.
Here you'll find some of the best burgers and Tex-Mex in town, but it's the margaritas and Mexican martinis that keep us going during the occasional long wait.
