This is a great Mexican restaurant just on the edge of the main town. The food is delicious at a reasonable price, and the staff are great! Definitely a good option for lunch or dinner at least once during your stay!

Opened by a couple of Austinites - they live up to their pedigree with some of the most fire tacos around. Be sure to get to the new location (tucked down behind the grocery store downtown). Better than Torchy's even

Had two meals here which were very much enjoyed! A good menu with a seasonal special, would suit most tastes. Very much a Mexican restaurant but a good option!

Very quick and tasty, good choice of menu options for those staying at the Pension Elena. We didn't eat at their main place, just the outlet next to the Pension.
