  • El Mesn boasts a lavish tequila selection and authentic Mexican fare. We adore the amuse-bouches here, like the unexpected tiny bowls of fideo or a little street-style corn on the cob.
  • One of Austin's most underrated Tex Mex restaurants, El Meson is an especially good bet for breakfast. Check out their Burleston Road location, too. [Eater 38 Member]
  • For the price, absolutely my favorite Mexican food... It's not Tex-Mex and yes there is a difference.
  • Great food but don't eat at the bar on a Friday night. Service was slow and bar was messy.
  • Sunday brunch is amazing, and quite a deal. $15/person. Living nearby, I'm in deep, deep trouble.
  • Amazing Sunday brunch buffet. Great value too.
  • Not a shabby brunch for $15! Ole!
  • This is the only mexican restraunt that I have ever been to that charges for chips and salsa...
  • Very good, authentic Mexican food. Try the tlacoyos and the mole poblano.
  • This place is so cute and so delicious!! The staff was very nice as well
  • Super underrated interior Mexican food in a bright, sunny setting. The cochinita pibil, green mole, and chile relleno are all stars, but you know its legit because of the homemade tortillas.
  • This isn't tex mex..this is the real deal. Opt for the pibil and Tamarindo margarita
  • Love this place! Big airy space, very minimalist dcor, not fancy not divey but with impressive food. Friendly service, and not usually very crowded
  • Love that new ceviche with cucumber and avocado base. Light and refreshing, shrimp-centered, perfect dish for hot summer days and nights.
  • Best place in town. Eat the chilorio. And definitely go for Sunday brunch.
  • Pretty empty for weekday lunch, and I don't know why. Although the chips were not free, the pork lunch options were well-priced and delicious. Ask for habanero sauce for some extra kick.
  • amazing flavorful food
  • Best interior Mexican (as well as Spanish) brunch in town!
  • Get the chips and dips!!! All three drips are homemade and delicious and homemade chips!!!
  • Good food. Reasonable prices. Small portions. I'll be back for sure
