East Side Find: Jalapeno’s Taco Bar

I went to Jalapenos Taco Bar expecting not to like it, and boy was I wrong.

The place was small, but not cramped, and the salsa was delicious.

I mixed it into everything.

The ceviche tostada was overloaded with fish, and my boyfriend’s bacon breakfast tacos more than filled him up.

Their prices were already low, but we had a Restaurant.com coupon, and the check was unbelievably cheap. We essentially had a Mexican Thanksgiving feast for what came out to be around $13. I highly recommend stopping by this place for good, cheap tacos.

Brunch At Torchy’s


Torchy’s Tacos is a famous Austin institution, and I heard that their
South 1st location was best, so I chose to swing by with my partner
on Saturday. The lines weren’t that bad, but service was not immediate.

He ordered the “Trailer Park- extra trashy,” which meant they removed the
lettuce and added queso to the fried chicken taco. He was extremely pleased.



I ordered the “Mr. Orange,” and a side of chips and salsa. The chips and salsa cost about as much as the taco, but I admit that the salsa was pretty darn good.

The mixture of blackened salmon, black beans, corn, and a drizzle of avocado sauce made it out of this world, and I’m not even that much of a taco fan.


We brought in our own bottle of bubbly to make mimosas with.
I’m not sure if that’s frowned upon or not, but no one said a word.


I wandered to the back and was relieved to find comfortable seating, abandoned game tables,
a lovely view of the creek, and (surprisingly) indoor plumbing.

With prices ranging from $3.50-$4.75 and quality that can’t be denied,
I highly recommend discreetly bringing some beer and having tacos at Torchy’s right now!
