Maudie's North Lamar
Where we've featured it
Maudie’s has become a bit of an Austin institution, starting as a cafe back in the 1950s before pivoting to Tex-Mex in the early ’90s. They also have a nice Happy Hour that runs from 3-6:30pm on Tuesday-Friday and 3pm-close on Mondays. You can get their signature margaritas for $6 or “fancy margs” for $8. There’s also a menu of small bites - like queso, mini tacos, and guac - for $5 each. They currently have six locations open across Austin, so you’re never too far from some margs.
