    Such a south Austin classic. The chicken mole or shrimp enchiladas are probably my favorite. Get the salsa sampler! Will help guide your entree choice. Avocado margaritas are famous for a reason!

    The bean and veggie tamales, veggie tacos, and veggie enchiladas are all vegan sans cheese. The rice is not. The avocado margs are awesome & they have FFL queso

    Veggie tamales are great - wonderful portions. If vegan, sub out the rice since it is made with chicken stock; however, the beans are good to go (no lard/cheese/whatnot). Limited sub options otherwise

    The avocado margarita is divine! I got the tacos al pastor with red tortillas due to Foursquare recs, and enjoyed them, though I like flour tortillas better. Don't fill up on the chips - not amazing.

    My favorite Mexican restaurant! Try the al pastor anything. Delicious. Also conchinita pibil and avocado margarita and add bananas to your rice!

    This place genuinely is the mother of all mexican! You can't go to Austin and not Tex Mex! I found this out of the way little gem on my new Supper app:

    The Avocado Margarita is creamy and tart, with a distinct nutty finish that only fresh avocados can provide. If you're looking for something a little lighter, try the delicately floral Bevo Rita.

    The cancun rellano was really good, if you're looking for a delcious, flavorful, healthier dish! Also 'splurge' on the salsa sampler! You'll be surprised by the number of salsa & the flavor profiles!

    This inexpensive, casual dive boasts some of the best Interior Mexican cuisine around. Superior tamales, salsas, Mexican breakfast, and regional dishes, as well as for an outstanding margarita bar.

    You're a damn fool if you don't come here to eat the Tacos El Pastor with bananas and refried beans on the side and an avocado margarita to wash it down. Prices are cheap and the chips are addicting.

    Get the Cochinita Pibil, and order with homemade red corn tortillas. Also don't miss the Oaxacan coffee and sweet tamales.

    This Oltorf institution is one of the city's best Tex Mex joints, and they bring an interior flair to their top-notch mole enchiladas. [Eater 38 Member]

    Try the Mexican Martini! It's awesome. The veggie chorizo queso is also a fave of mine, and I'm a carnivore! If you like enchiladas, try the Enchiladas Chiapas with fajita chicken. Delicious!

    Despite having over 150 4sq photos and a billion tips leftover from #sxsw, this place still has charm, kitsch, and most importantly, next level Mexican food. Our crew hit home runs with the mole.

    Carnitas are my go-to. Nails that austin vibe. Avocado margaritas are a must if your visiting. They do charge extra for chips and salsa.

    Our first choice for visitors who want Mexican is this South Austin spot. We know avocado margaritas are the spotlight, but try the spicy mescal Oaxacan margaritas. [Eater 38 Member]

    Great margaritas and the octopus ceviche is the best! The perfect ending to your meal is Curra's flan and imported Mexican coffee.

    Migas with spinach, mushroom and pasilla sauce. Outstanding! You won't find it on the menu, but the servers can recreate from just an image!

    So maybe I had hi-hopes, but Tacos al Pastor was NOT good. This is now mich canned pineapples were in two tacos. Veggies were barely warmed (raw) & cut. :( Pork was not tender. Boo! Ava marg is GREAT!

    Huevos Mexicano is not on the menu - but is the healthiest miga-style option in town. Sub guacamole for your cheese and beans. Bless Curra's. Alex at the bar is beautiful inside and out.
