I was visiting some friends in Austin and I asked them to take me to their favorite Mexican restaurant. We went to La Cocina de Consuelo and I have to say that they made a great choice. I love Enchiladas and I ordered a chicken and beef enchilada. They were absolutely GREAT. The service also was great and the food... More

When the soulless corporate Blue Meanies at Marriott forced the legendary Las Manitas out of business, I called the owner to ask her, "So now where am I supposed to eat Mexican food around here?"
