Habanero Mexican Cafe501 West Oltorf Street, Austin, TX, United States
I ordered veggie tacos with flour tortillas, rice, beans, and guacamole. The veggies included were mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions, and it was extremely salty! I added some of their salsa (which ... read more
is goooooood), guacamole, rice, beans, AND lettuce to my tacos, and that cut down on the sharp saltiness, and then my tacos were pretty tasty.My boyfriend got carnitas tacos and a lengua taco, both of which looked decent (I'm a vegetarian, so I have no idea what I'm talking about), and he seemed to like it enough to eat himself into a coma.One thing I noticed? The glasses are HUGE! I couldn't even wrap my hands around them!
recommended Alamo Drafthouse Austin: Downtown
Alamo Drafthouse Austin: Downtown320 East 6th Street, Austin, TX, United States
The Alamo Drafthouse is just the coolest movie theatre on the whole friggin planet is all. Where else on earth can you enjoy such wacky happenings as the annual 'Stoner Olympics' (on 4/20 of course) ... read more
with Cheech and Chong as judges? Or how about a spaghetti western like 'The Good, The Bad and the Ugly' with a plateful of spaghetti included with your ticket? Or if that don't float your boat, how 'bout a blacksplotation flick and a 40oz of malt liquor to go along with it? I could go on forever 'cause these guys are always coming up with something cooler than the next. If you don't pop into the Alamo Drafthouse, you just haven't experienced Austin.
Victor, don't miss this or 6th St. If you can schedule your visit for SWSW, that's even better!

simple with a breakfast taco and some award winning salsa (it'll only set you back $2). Their coffee is also fantastic and they serve real (sugar, not high fructose corn syrup) sodas! Can't lose with Torcy's.

Gueros is an Austin Institution. Almost every movie filmed in the state capital has got at least one scene with Gueros either in the background or with the characters inside having some of their ... read more
trademark killer carnitas or margaritas. Being big in the movies means it's popular with celebs, so it's a hot spot for star gazing too.
Ya gotta go to Gueros in Austin, Victor - If you don't, it'd be like going to Paris and not going to the top of Eiffel Tower or somethin' ;-)
