Try this place for great enchiladas and popular flavored margaritas that should come with warning stickers: "Muy bueno!"

All of your favorites are prepared fresh every day. Stick to the enchiladas and tacos.
You'll find the same big plates of gooey Tex-Mex goodness that lure you to the Barton Springs location, and quite a bit of the same atmosphere.
Prepare for sensory overload from both the fresh salsas and the Elvis-by-way-of-Oaxaca decor. Go early; it's almost always packed.
In addition to stacked enchiladas, the extensive menu offers hearty steak, chicken, and shrimp dishes flavored with a combination of Southwestern and Interior Mexican spices.
This little kitchen churns out soft, juicy tacos and absolutely perfect carnitas by the pound in the back of a Texaco. You won't find fancy schmancy salmon tacos or fried-chicken tacos here, but you will find food reminiscent of Mexico.
A bright blip on the radar for lovers of goat meat, the menu is very complete for a taquería, but Mario, the taquero, also adds seasonal specials, based on what he finds at the market. During corn season he offers an exemplary elote, sweet caramelized grilled corn slathered with mayo, crema fresca, cheese, and chile, with a squeeze of lime. He'll slice it off of the cob to serve it as esquites if you ask.
Every dish on the menu has a surprise inside – some combination of ingredients that fills the time between ordering and the first bite with heavy anticipation.
Fresh and healthfully prepared yet authentic Interior Mexican food is served in a colorful, clean, kid-friendly atmosphere. Excellent salsas. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
