Maudie’s Milagro is the definition of Tex-Mex heaven. For years they have created the standard in Austin for delicious and flavorful Southwest flavors. They’re known for serving breakfast every day and make their margaritas with freshly squeezed juices.

The menu is extensive as they have everything you could possibly imagine–enchiladas, fajitas, burritos, combo plates, and more. Some yummy breakfast options are huevos rancheros, sausage Migas, green/red chilaquiles, and more. This is the place to go whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, or meat lover, as they provide it all!

The Oasis has become a well-known popular spot where hundreds of guests come from all over the world.

Overlooking the Oasis on Lake Travis, the restaurant has the most relaxing atmosphere, especially during sunset. Just imagine enjoying lunch or dinner, having an amazing view of the water while indulging in fajitas served with guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, cheese, lettuce, and more.

Another great one to have on your list of Tex-Mex restaurants in West Austin is Lupe Tortilla. Home of serving more than 60 items from scratch, fajitas and hand-pressed tortillas in both flour and corn, this restaurant is very popular that they have a few other locations throughout Texas!

When one first enters the vicinity, they will be greeted with a comfortable atmosphere with lots of colorful details. Aside from the decorations, this joint serves the classic guacamole, nachos, burritos, tacos, tamales, and other classics.

There are also other upscale entrees that you might not find at other joints which makes this place unique. I would recommend trying the chipotle smoked ribs or the lobster tacos.

Last but not least, Taco Ranch! One of my many favorites of Tex Mex restaurants, Taco Ranch keeps things simple, yet fresh. Everything stands out in the best way, from the bright/ inviting aesthetic to the homemade, mouthwatering food.

The breakfast tacos are made using whole, organic eggs with all natural chorizo, sausage, and bacon. The lunch and dinner items are also used with all-natural meat, seasoned and cooked for hours so that the meat can be filled with flavor.

No matter the dish ordered, you can be guaranteed to be served a delicious meal. Truly one of many bests Tex Mex restaurants in West Austin.
