Favorite Fajitas in Austin?

Well to be honest I would not ever drive out of my way for fajitas but what made them good was the Vegetables were very fresh and the marinade was extremely tasty. I tried to figure out the marinade but could not and the owner said I can't tell you!! If you are going out for a day trip at the lake and looking for somewhere to stop and have a few $2.00 Margaritas (happy hour) and some Awesome fajitas and if you do carbs their their tortillas are homemade. I recommend the flour tortillas! Since the drinks were so cheap I don't really remember why the fajitas were good but they were!!!!!!

Favorite Fajitas in Austin?

The only good fajitas I have had in Austin were at Los Pinos!!

Los Pinos is what I would describe as a VERY authentic Mexican restaurant. It reminds me of Spring Break in Mexico. The place looks a little run down and there are kids playing in front kicking a soccer ball. Although authentic it is very clean. The fajitas are excellent, I have only tried the chicken and the shrimp and I would say they were the best fajitas I have ever had. The best part is they have affordable drinks and if you have ever been to any establishment near Lake Travis you know that the average price for a beer is 4 bucks and they serve it in the can plus it takes about 20-30 minutes for the dumbass poorly groomed pot head kid to come back with your beer. Go during Happy Hour!! Family ran business with a very nice staff.

Breakfast Burritos vs. Tacos?

Thanx!

Yes, I have been to Casino El Camino and although the kitchen staff is very ANGRY!! The burgers were EXCELLENT and the bartenders ROCK!! Dark and dingy is how I would explain it and coming from LA and enjoying a more alternative lifestyle I very much enjoyed the atmosphere at Casino El Camino. I love that no body bugged us the entire time we were there and everyone sticks to themselves.

Thank you for your insight and I look forward to trying some of the BBQ places you recommended.

Breakfast Burritos vs. Tacos?

I just moved to East Austin from Cali and I cannot find ANY great food in Austin. The only good Mexican food I found was at Los Pinos but thats too far (I went to go check out Carlos and Charlies but they were closed. So I stopped at this hole in the wall place that was open and they were GREAT and the service was excellent!) Anyway, back to the breakfast burrito. I would love to find a place that makes a breakfast burrito. I cannot even bring myself to say breakfast taco, It just sounds ridiculous! I want beans, eggs, bacon or chorizo , sour cream all wrapped together in the form of a BURRITO!! If you have any luck please let me know!! I also was told to go to Juan In a Million when I first arrived and yes, that name ROCKS!
