La Condesa serves light-ish Mexican food that won’t immobilize you. Their plates are small - but the colorful interior and excellent margaritas (they’re some of our favorite in the city) make up for it. It’s a big space that’s great for groups, and for impressing out-of-towners who don’t understand there’s more than one type of salsa. Be sure to make a reservation.

Rosita's Al Pastor
Rosita's is our favorite al pastor taco in Austin, and maybe the world. Hit it for breakfast, if you know what's good for you.
