    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.

    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

    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

    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!

    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 :)

    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.

    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

    Get the cactus/nopalito egg scramble plate. Ask for quest fresco and frijoles negros.

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

    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.

    The pinnacle of South Austin; crazy decorations, live music, and cheap Mexican food. Great place to hang. The migas is bangin

    Migas is my favorite; but I appreciate all of their vegetarian breakfast tacos. They also have awesome chips.

    On weekend mornings, grab some fresh tacos while you listen to live music and chase with your kids. Check out the funky decor.

    Call in your order when you first arrive, and you won't have to wait in the long lines during Hippie Church on Sundays.

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

    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.

    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.
