El Chato

First bustaurant in Austin, and it’s serving up interior Mexican cuisine. You can’t miss the ex-Greyhound covered in cultural Mexican murals from end to end. Inside you’ll find Mexican food the way it’s made in Mexico, like enchiladas made by dipping the tortillas in a chile sauce, frying them in oil, then filling and serving them immediately with just a little added sauce and cheese for a garnish. And none of that yellow 'cheese product'; here you’re getting authentic real white cheeses. Take a step into Mexico without your passport by visiting El Chato.

    Due to a glitch with the printer, we didn't get our food for a long time. No biggie though. The weather was nice and they were genuinely doing their best. Food was pretty damn good.

      And in the end, they went out of their way to make it right with free meal cards for everyone and free desserts (homemade caramel flan and crepes with tequila ice cream - yum!). I really applaud customer service like that!

    Oh gosh... I forgot this'll be during SX. I plan to stay far, far away from downtown this week.
