Yummy! Barbacoa (beef cheek) plate with double beans and no rice was tender. Spritzing a bit of lime from the salsa bar was the perfect elevation to this dish. Pastor plate was maybe just a little fatty for us, but the flavor was on point....More

Used to be off the beaten path on Lamar. Now it is easy to be overlooked. We absolutely love this place for brunch. Need to experience; unique and funky. Just like you'd expect in Austin.

Made my way to another Triple D stop and it did not disappoint. A really fun place to kick back and enjoy some tacos.

Delicious food and great atmosphere! The stuffed avocado special is divine and unique. Enchiladas are on point--even the lettuce salad on the side is crips. Indoor and outdoor seating aplenty. Go for a beer over a marg... you'll save a buck and probably get more...More
