Fonda San Miguel
This surprising gem in the Allandale neighborhood of Austin is like visiting an art museum that happens to serve some of the best traditional interior Mexican food in town. The plating of the flavorful dishes is almost as amazing as the exquisite artwork on the walls. Make sure to ask the servers about seasonal specials and start with appetizers like the queso asados and tacos al pastor. Don't forget the full bar with delicious and potent cocktail combinations.
Reservations are recommended over walk-ins, but waiting in the lounge area is comfortable and rounds out the experience.
