jamas volvere a este restaurant . es lo peor que he conocido en Austin . la comida
horrible , el arroz un asco , el servicio el peor , no volvere y le dire a todos mis conocidos que no vallan a ese lugar
Food was awesome, the only confusion was that the menu price says 5.25 for tostadas but the register charged 8.25. Not a big deal money wise, but just in the expectation.
Food was bad and overpriced

This place is really nice. It's the perfect summer restaurant. Currently it's BYOB, but sometimes they serve margaritas for free. They might get a liquor license in the future, but take advantage now and bring your cooler. They also will have live music soon. Go try it and support them.
I so wanted to like this place-the story is engaging and the setting is ready for fun. We were the only people there and the service was VERY slow and you were already out of jamaica tea at 1 pm? The meat was tasty-but a very small amount in the tamales. There were no pears in the salad though the menu listed it. The guacamole portion (to go) was TINY for the price.
I am so disappointed.

El Chato means "the plain one", but there is absolutely nothing simple about the restaurant El Chato. The eatery is house in a 1958 Greyhound bus that has been converted into a bustaurant. Colorful Mexican murals grace the exterior of the vehicle, while inside a compact stainless steel kitchen cooks up platters of authentic interior Mexican cuisine. And El Chato's chefs are certain to let patrons know that these particular interior Mexican entrees are nothing like their Americanized counterparts oozing with Velveeta cheese and ground meat. The chefs instead boil and shred the meat they pack into their tacos, empanadas, and tamales; use only white cheese including asadero; and handcraft enchiladas by dipping them in chili sauce before frying them in oil.
The restaurant's hefty entrees are served up for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and can be enjoyed amid the interior's cozy booths or on the outdoor patio illuminated by string lights and the moon, which they lasso in each night. Designed to be family-friendly, they also feature an outdoor playground set for children.
