Drove 20 minutes outside of Austin to the burbs for this treat, it's well worth the effort. The brisket taco and cerveza beef fajita taco, both with sea salt lime guacamole were like nothing I've ever tasted (I'm admittedly not a Texan, so take that into consideration). The sides were also good - had smoked corn, red potato salad and beans. Very rustic outdoor seating, so may not be great on a scorching hot or rainy day - but you can always bring it home. You'll probably bring some home anyway because the portions are big.
It's a must try.

We have eaten here since we first found it on Brodie Lane before they moved to this location. The food is always good and service is usually quick and definitely worth the wait.

Finally made it to this popular place now that they've moved and have more parking. Wow. Sorry I waited so long. Had the Carnitas Taco. We went in a large group and shared lots of sides. Couldn't stop reaching for the rice!!

All the praise of this place is deserved. It's a long drive from downtown Austin, but well worth it. The brisket is right up there with the best, and the pulled pork is excellent as well. The day we were there, they were also serving barbecued lamb, which was first-rate. Get the brisket sliced, not chopped,, at least on your first visit, and ask for sauce on the side, if you get a sandwich The sauce is OK, but it masks the wonderful taste of the meats. The salsa's probably a better choice. The smoked corn is amazing. If it's a pretty day, there's plenty of seating outside.

It's worth the drive to S Austin. Leave plenty of time to order breakfast tacos before 11am but this place serves amazing food. Can't wait to go back.
