Authentic Mexican Dive

It's no secret that many holes in the wall provide the best cheap eats. When the Mexican cravings hit in South Austin, locals know exactly where to go: El Borrego De Oro.

Now, this isn't a fancy joint by any means. The staff is so friendly and helpful that whether you want true Mexican or prefer to mix it up with a little American cuisine, there's practically no guesswork on what to order. The place gets busy and service can get pretty slow; but the interior is always clean, and the food's worth the wait.

Combos with pork, lamb, beef, chicken, or goat meat are often big enough to share. And endless chips and salsa are fresh are standard for each table.
