  • Just eat anything
  • Best ceviche in town. Period. Yes, I am comparing it to EVERYWHERE else.
  • The guajolote en mole tacos are fucking amazing!
  • Screw Taco Deli and its Dona sauce. Papalote has my taco heart.
  • They have a fantastic new lunch special, any two tacos, rice and beans and an iced tea for $6.50. Food enough for two! Yum!
  • Not really much of an atmosphere, but this place has the best tacos in all of Austin Tacoland Texas. Seriously. Cauliflower and fried avocado and breakfast tacos and horchata and perfection.
  • If you are insanely hungry try the Torta Cubano. It's amazing and is the messiest thing I've eaten in years.
  • You'll lick your fingers clean from the guajolote en mole tacos with big chunks of shredded turkey smothered in a deep-red mole that's a pitch-perfect blend of sweet, savory, and fire.
  • The green sauce is the best!! For breakfast tacos I love the simple potato egg and jalapeo! They use serranos so they are spicy and delicious! For a dinner taco try the verdolagas.... Yuuuuum!
  • Turkey mole competes for best taco in Austin
  • Amazing food for vegans and meat eaters. Best Taco place I've been in Austin. Tell them David J. sent you.
  • So fresh, if blindfolded you'd assume this food came from some high end Mexican spot.
  • I'm in love with the chorizo.
  • The torta Cubana is huge. If you're extremely hungry it's great. Also awesome to share with someone else. Friendly staff. Great prices. Amazing food!
  • one of the best taco joints in town. i always go for the banderillas. also love the coliflor (veggie!) and the puerco en pipian. everything is great though. cant go wrong.
  • Hold the phone! They have queso now! And damn it is good!
  • Tinga de Res, ridiculously good!!
  • Try the Salsa Roja if you think you can handle the heat.
  • The adobada tacos are awesome!
  • Tacos alambres are the best tacos ever, remind me of the street food I used to eat as a teenager
