An Austin icon. Been around since before I was born. Excellent tex-mex and atmosphere. Prepare to wait or call ahead for reservations during busy times. Great outdoor patio. Live mariachi on Thursday nights.

Good, light tex-mex. More of a "dive" than Matt's El Ranch with less atmosphere, but good nonetheless.
