Where to Enjoy Late-Night Tacos in Austin

Where to Enjoy Late-Night Tacos in Austin

Do you ever get a late-night craving for tacos?

If so, head to one of these restaurants near our East Austin apartments that serve this delicious dish until the wee hours of the morning:

Javelina

  When four friends decided to open a restaurant, Javelina was born. The lively atmosphere blends their favorite elements from local dance halls and Hill Country beer joints. The restaurant is open nightly until 1:30 a.m., and on a nice evening, the patio draws a crowd. In the kitchen, the chefs prepare  time-honored recipes using the finest, freshest ingredients. Tacos include Gulf shrimp, blackened fish, and chicken tinga. 

El Taquito

An East Riverside institution, El Taquito stays open until at least midnight. It began as a taco cart in a northern Mexico town and now calls Austin home. Guests can enjoy their time inside or out, and local bands entertain Thursday through Saturday at the Round Rock location. The restaurant was the first in the city to introduce queso fresco and sliced avocados in its tacos. Choices include gringas, chile relleno, and Los Famosos. Don't forget to try the famous margaritas. They're made with a secret recipe and pack quite a punch. 

Velvet Taco

  Open until 4:00 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, Velvet Taco is where the chefs use a tortilla as their canvas. They make over 20 different tacos featuring bold flavors from around the world. The restaurant offers some of the city's best cheap eats, and it's popular among the late-night crowd. Tacos include spicy tikka chicken, fried pepper, and shrimp & grits. They're best enjoyed with the elote corn and red curry coconut queso. 

Along with these restaurants, our Austin apartments are also near top shopping destinations and premier cultural attractions. To call our community home, please contact us. We will gladly arrange a tour so you can see all we have to offer.
