Where to Eat in Austin Right Now

The gist: Armed with an Instagram feed full of crispy red tortillas, tender beef birria, and melty queso that sells out daily, chef-owner Gerardo "Jerry" Guerrero has officially captured the attention of a taco-obsessed city.
The food: Guerrero slow-roasts his guajillo-based beef brisket until it’s fall-apart tender, serving the flavorful meat in a handful of delicious forms: The birria taco (birria wrapped in a handmade tortilla fried in beef fat), the quesotaco (a birria taco with griddled Monterey jack cheese), the mulita (essentially an overstuffed quesadilla), and the ramen (birria ramen served with Tapatio noodles). Always order a side of consomme, a rich broth made from beef, onion, cilantro, chile, and spices that’s essential for dunking. Oh, and did we mention birria is the ultimate hangover food?
The cost: Tacos $2.50 - $3, ramen $8, mulita $4, consomme $2 - $3.
