This should be among your stops. Its worth the drive! Had the puffy tacos and the Tex-Mex Guisada. Whoa! Who needs BBQ when you could be eating here! These are definitely the best tacos in east Austin!

Stopped by for a quick lunch. I thought the food was very good, fast service, friendly staff and large portions. Because of the portion size of the lunch platter, I could probably share this with my wife next time we stop by.
