While the Southeast Austin taqueria specializes in counter-service snacks, its full-service South Lamar sib is set in a beautifully refurbished space offering a diverse menu of "amazing", "authentic" interior Mexican fare, including regional specialties (cochinita pibil, Acapulco-style shrimp cocktail) plus "strong, cheap margaritas"; service is "friendly, but not always polished", while the big dining room with open kitchen is bright and welcoming, and the bar serves a wide variety of tequilas with small plates to match.
