  • SPIN

    The kitschy decor and bountiful serving sizes make this spot in the southwestern section of town one of Austin's best for tacos. Especially breakfast tacos.

    Maria's has been making tacos fresh daily for 12 years. Try the Pollo Guisado, which is like barbecue chicken in an enchilada.

    Migas Taco is the best in Austin, their queso is reasonably priced and delicious! Their patio is also dog friendly, this has become my morning ritual. Te amo, loca Maria!

    Maria's is one of the most popular destinations for quick cheap food in Austin. The dining area is packed on the weekends, and they have daily specials. They have horchata and sweet Mexican drinks. Read more

    Little screams South Austin as loudly and proudly as Maria's. Expect simple, fast fare like the hangover-curing gorditas, a brunch build-your-own Bloody Mary bar, and lots of folks keepin' it weird.

    Cheap but yummylicious Queso (given the price). Fairly inconsistent food. Stay away from the "bland" plates = stick w/ ordering soft tacos & chile con queso! Veggie friendly.

    Great spot for breakfast, especially if you have out of town guests.

    Great place for quick Mexican food or breakfast tacos. Best in the area. Can't miss hippie church, there nothing else quite like it.

    The barbacoa may be mouth-watering, but the migas taco is life-changing. We take full advantage of the endless supply of cilantro and green salsa. Read more

    Very meh food. Bland and generic. $2.50-$3 tacos. Hippie atmosphere is cool if you're into it, otherwise you're better off at a taqueria.

    Great queso! If you love queso and live on South Lamar, Maria's and Kerby Lane are the best!

    This is the place for aging hippies and hemp crazed youngsters looking for home made Mexican food and good Austin roots music in an outdoor venue. Highly recomended for it's laid back factor

    Good not great. Al Pastor was weak but the fish taco was good in flavor and size. It's worth checking out to see for yourself.

    Sunday mornings is the day to be there! Hippie Church is until 2pm with lively mix of Gospel/ Blues/ classic rock. A must see for people wanting to feel what " Austin Weird" feels like.

    We eat here often for 2 reasons: 1) it's very cheap and 2) easy to find healthier, liter options due to all the veggie friendly items. At least for Tex Mex :)
