el chilito

while we’re on the topic of food, anyone rambling toward this blog would do well to know of El Chilito, the punky little brother of El Chile. located in what looks to be an old drive-in hamburger shack on manor road about 5 blocks east of I-35, El Chilito specializes in tacos. that’s pretty much it – delicious tacos. of course, you can get a thirst quenching limonada (lime-ade) or beer, as well as some funky fresh frozen pops, but really this place is all about the tacos. get it? tacos!

last summer as we were building the SNAP House in preparation for the Solar Decathlon, el chilito inconspicuously opened their windows (it’s walk-up, not walk-in, tho they have sheltered outdoor seating and wifi). we felt pretty sure that we were single-handedly responsible for their success as we ambled down nearly every day, sometimes two or three times, to partake in the deliciousness that emanated not blocks away from our building site. dear lord i can’t get through to you how good this place in – w/o a doubt the BEST tacos in austin.

it’s cheap, it’s fast, is fresh, it’s fantastic. it’s el chilito!

    Dude, totally. It’s also the official taco stand of the unfederated brother- and sisterhood of Austin Hipsters.
