    Crispy shell right out of the box, beans straight from the can. No, just no.

    Lunch deals are truly a good deal. If you opt to stick around in the restaurant instead of taking it out, they'll serve up tea and sherbet too.

    Recommended by Anthony Bourdain on No Reservations. It's been around since 1963, and the food is excellent. Try the baby goat.

    The friendly Guerra family has been serving up Tex-Mex since 1963 in a restaurant that was once East Austin Democrats' hallowed ground. We're fans of the classic combo plates and the cabrito flautas.

    Ask for a 'flechador' not sure of the spelling but it is amaaazing.

    Far from authentic ... But if you made the trek out, get a beer in your margarita :-)

    Get the #1. Add a carne guisada taco if you are man enough. Meet Juan before you leave.
