    Taco express has the best vibe, food, and hippie church on Sundays. Voted one of 5 best tacos in Austin. Just this month. It's worth the wait.And for winter, Pozole and chicken soup. Must have.

    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.

    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.

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

    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 :)
