Cozy drive-up taco stand perfectly appropriates its more formal self, each down the street from the other.

When a breakfast taco just isn't enough to absorb last night's fun, order one of El Chilito's breakfast burritos instead. I recommend the Migas Burrito, which is exactly the version you'd find on a plate (chip strips, tomato, onion, serranos, eggs, generous cheese), wrapped up in a tortilla so large it could double as a wrap skirt.

At first, El Chilito was a simply fantastic taco box serving up my favorite breakfast tacos. It wasn't too long before I was buying El Chilito salsa by the jar, and ordering fish tacos for dinner multiple nights a week! I love the puffy fish taco for its tasty shell and baja slaw!

Awesome Food, I love it! – Okay ya'll, these are the best tacos in town. I love going to El Chilito, and could really eat there anytime. I go for breakfast tacos when I don't have time to make my own breakfast, running late, etc. And I'll stop there to bring home food after work. I love everything I've tried there, and the salsa is especially wonderful, tasty, yummy! Sometimes you have to wait 10-15 minutes, but it's well worth it. Some people complain about that, but for the quality of their food, I can wait!

The Hangover Cure and darn good food – I love this place (especially if I drank a bit too much the night before) for a good meal. I would recommend charlie's special for breakfast and picadillo or pescado entortillado with beans and rice for lunch. Also, I like the option to have flour or corn tortillas- I usually get the corn. Its more authentic and in my opinion a lot tastier than Taco Deli. I like getting to watch the kitchen staff use REAL ingredients when they cook and the staff up front always seems friendly.

Ok tacos, inconsistent service – 8 times out of 10 my order is wrong at El Chilito on Manor. And not just sort of wrong, but completely wrong even though it's my order. Double check before leaving that you have the right tacos!

Pricey but wonderful! – The Conchinita Pibil and Tinga de Pollo are my favorite. My girlfriend gets the Picadillo or the Carne Asada tacos. The food is great, the drink selection superb, but the prices are rather high (once you addon should-be included items like guac and sour cream). You kinda get the idea that the staff would just as soon stab you in the eye as serve you metabolic sustenance. Gotta sport the leather cuz the In-Crowd frequents... oh yeah...

Drive-up taco stand perfectly suits its more formal self. – Opening multiple locations is a classic move for successful Austin restauranteurs. This is probably the closest offspring from the original; they're on the same street, serving virtually identical menus. This location is super casual, with a fishbowl-esque kitchen and what can be called partially indoor seating (There's a roof but only screened-in walls.) Guests watch tomatoes roasting, for smoky salsa, and tortillas warming on huge grills. Salads, stuffed burritos, and perfect tacos are perpetually in demand and keep the flow of traffic in and out of this stand brisk.

Good stuff – I'm excited that we finally got an El Chilito in downtown Austin. There's a dearth of good, cheap lunch places here, especially since we lost the Torchy's on 6th street. I love having breakfast taco and a Mexican Coke with a side of black beans. The employees are really friendly as well.

Good Puffy Tacos – good food and really good puffy tacos. Just make sure not to put the bag on your lap otherwise you WILL have a grease spot on you. Only had two problems ever. One the sangrias are never strong enough, just get a large beer insted. Two, the last time I went they were outa puffy taco's which would have been ok, but they did not tell me until after taking my order and money while they did offer to change my order I didnt want anything else and just need my cash back and I got shorted a few bucks. I didnt notice till I got home, still I probably go back as I assume it was just a mistake.

Good latte, great taco... – Stop by El Chilito for some cheese-y Austin charm--heavy on BOTH cheese (as in the dairy product, not Celine Dion) AND the bewitchery of local Austin at its finest.

Keep in mind you may wait in line forever, to order and to eat, HOWEVER, you will also experience sheer ecstasy upon your very FIRST bite of the migas breakfast taco, coated in salt and their unique fire roasted salsa.

Live on the wild side and sample the soy latte--a great addition to any Monday morning.
