Where to Find Authentic Mexican Food in Austin


Austin is the capital of Texas and in our eyes the capital of Mexican food! People come to visit Austin just for the Mexican food. We don’t blame them though; queso, guacamole, enchiladas, quesadillas, and the list goes on. Just writing this is making our mouths water. Some people joke that queso runs through their bloodstream but I honestly would not doubt it. Give any Austinite a margarita and some queso and you won’t hear from them for the rest of the night!

Free Queso w/ any entree at Vamonos

Tacos and queso truly are the ways to our hearts. Every Friday when we are in the office, we have Breakfast Taco Friday. One team member brings tacos for the whole office and we try a different spot each Friday. It has been a tradition we deeply miss since working from home, but are counting down the days until we can indulge in tacos as a team again.
