Venue Info

Despite the name, Taco Flats is much more of a bar than a taco joint -- though it would serve you well to arrive hungry and thirsty. This famous hippie hangout of the 1970s shuttered almost 30 years ago, and has now been revived in its original Burnet Rd location. The dive bar has received a facelift and has a sleek sports bar look, over 30 craft beers on tap, six wines on tap, and a cocktail program helmed by veterans from Midnight Cowboy and Eastside Showroom. Must-tries include the Agave Old Fashioned (reposado tequila, mezcal, honey, mole bitters), El Chuco (Sotol Blanco, fresh lime, orgeat, mole bitters) and the No-mah-mes (espadin mezcal, green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, fresh lime, spicy bitters). True to old-school Austin, their menu runs the gamut from carnitas tortas to hemp seed burgers and "hippie tacos" with grilled Oaxaca cheese, refried black beans, and house pickled escabeche -- all on delicate, house-made tortillas, of course.
