Taco Tour 2006, week three

This Saturday, I went to Chango’s.  I guess it’s a relatively big deal in Austin, one of the more popular taquerias.  I’m not sure it counts as a taqueria, though, at least not a nice little family-owned one.  It’s owned by the proprietors of Manuel’s, a nice tex-mex place up in the Northwest region.  Chango’s, being a few blocks north of The University of Texas, shows all the tell-tale signs of being a trendy spot.  It lacks the class and charm of a small, dirty spot that’s tucked away in the middle of nowhere.  You also miss out on those little extras like free chips and salsa.

But those tacos…

I grabbed a chicken taco and a grilled Mahi Mahi taco, and both were excellent.  Moist, flavorful, and light.  I was still hungry when I left, which isn’t great, but my total charge for two tacos and a drink was $6.66, so that’s fun.

Chicken: 8.5

Mahi Mahi: 8

Still Hungry Penalty: -4

Average: 6.25
