Polvos Mexicana & Bar
There's no denying the charm of South Austin's wildly popular Mexican restaurant and cantina. Once you've parked and walked, you'll be surprised that the wait is shorter to sit inside than on the popular sprawling patio that faces the parking lot. Most folks are loading up on chips and homemade salsa varieties (there's an entire salsa bar inside), along with house margaritas. If you get around to eating, the burritos are gargantuan and the fajitas and enchiladas are always satisfying. Cheese and mole sauce reign supreme here, so don't be scared to sauce it up. Seafood is featured prominently on the menu, and if you're brave enough, you will be richly rewarded.
