This Saturday, I went to Chango’s.Â I guess it’s a relatively big deal in Austin, one of the more popular taquerias.Â I’m not sure it counts as a taqueria, though, at least not a nice little family-owned one.Â It’s owned by the proprietors of Manuel’s, a nice tex-mex place up in the Northwest region.Â Chango’s, being a few blocks north of The University of Texas, shows all the tell-tale signs of being a trendy spot.Â It lacks the class and charm of a small, dirty spot that’s tucked away in the middle of nowhere.Â 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.Â Moist, flavorful, and light.Â 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.
Mahi Mahi: 8
Still Hungry Penalty: -4
