El Chile Cafe y Cantina

True Tex Mex in South First
Dip one chip after another into the dark exotic Salsa that won first place in the Austin Chronicle's Hot Sauce Contest while you take in the colorful art on the walls.

El Chile y Cantina is not your typical Tex-Mex joint, it's a contemporary approach to Tex-Mex dining with an Austin twist.

Try the Enchiladas de Mole; Oaxacan red mole that blankets the roasted pork enchiladas or the Tacos de Pescado; two morita-marinated black drum tacos with baja slaw and lemon aioli and wash it down with a Top Shelf Margarita. Save some space for the Tres Leches Cake!
