El Naranjo never disappoints. We love to take new comers to Austin to eat there because the food is always delicious and the service is great. I have tried all the moles and they are complex and very tasty. The short ribs and the steak tacos were also great. They have lots of gluten free options so everyone will be happy. Don’t miss the queso fundito and have a margarita to start. More
