Solid value, great staff

On a recent business trip, I wanted to pick up breakfast tacos for the office, and El Meson was a small hole-in-the-wall place on the ride -- happy for me I decided to stop and try it out. The staff could not be any more warm and welcoming. They give you a readout of your order, just to be... read more

A coworker took me to El Meson for lunch. The food tasted fresh and was delivered to our place quickly.

El Meson is a hidden gem. Located near the airport they serve great Mexican food. One of the best Mexican restaurants in Austin. They are only open for lunch or dinner. Mon.-Fri. 6:30 am - 2:30 pm Sat 7 am- 2pm. Order at the counter from the menu and be sure to check the board for the daily special. This... More

You have to try the chilorio. It is delicious. They also have the best guacamole in Austin. Riquisimo.
