The staff tells us that patrons dig the Tacos Al Pastor and Shrimp Enchiladas, but one of the most popular dishes is the colossal 12-inch Super Taco. We dare you to order two.Though Austin is quickly climbing the ranks of the largest cities in the United States, the city still has quite the shortage of 24-hour joints, especially on the uber-chicadelic eastside. But that's where Las Cazuelas comes to the rescue. This legendary Mexican restaurant not only has you covered once the bars close, but also for breakfast ($2.99 b-fast deals!), lunch and dinner. But the best part of this cozy spot is that once you step through the door, you feel like you've time-warped to a coastal taqueria—jukebox, Spanish guitar, sombreros, vibrant decor and all.
Las Cazuelas translates to "the cooking pots," and gobs of pots and pans this place must have! The restaurant boasts over 100 dishes on the menu with many items featuring family recipes from owner Juantino Ponce's San Luis Potosi roots. The staff tells us that patrons dig the Tacos Al Pastor and Shrimp Enchiladas, but one of the most popular dishes is the colossal 12-inch Super Taco. This behemoth is served with beef fajita and the option of making the taco even more superlicious with help from the salsa and toppings bar. Check out the spicy green salsa if you want to boost those endorphins.
