El Mercado Restaurants

Locally owned and operated since 1984, El Mercado came into being as a small operation selling breakfast tacos from a front porch on South First Street. Although the Mexican market they were once part of has disappeared, El Mercado has grown to three locations, with breakfast tacos remaining a staple of their menu. In the kitchen, cooks sauté onions for barbecue chicken enchiladas and rub beef with a secret spice mix before adding it to brisket tacos. Beans and sauces made without meat products can satisfy the cravings of vegetarians and giant carnivorous plants trying to change their ways.

This restaurant has an "Old Austin" ambiance that my wife and I love. My wife had the Mini Chimis and I had the Shrimp Chile Rellenos and both were great. The service was good. It was a wonderful experience.
