Austin isn't very well known for its Tex-Mex food; you can go to El Paso or San Antonio for that. But if you want to enjoy the most authentic Mexican food in Austin, head down to Fonda San Miguel. Serving its unique take on Mexican cuisine for nearly three decades, this "Grande Dame" hacienda is adorned with gorgeous murals of Mexican art. Known for their killer mole, Acapulco-style poblano, and smooth margaritas, Fonda San Miguel proves that the appropriated Tex-Mex can give you a little taste of Mexico one taco el pastor at a time.
