I just stopped by this place because we needed a quick bite. Got the Duo Combo for me and the wife. The food and the service are both incredible. In and out very fast with fresh food. The guy operating it was extremely friendly. I’ll be going back regularly.

These carnitas are great bc they are take out. You bring them home and heat them up however you best like, make sure you have cash though, they only take cash and you don't want to use the ATM in the convenience store because they charge you an arm and a leg to take out money ($7.5) They also make aguas frescas on the stop and they are sooo good

We saw the CARNITAS sign leaving Austin, and had to stop in!!! Super tasty carnitas! Hubby ordered the 'orden personal' and I ordered the 'tacote'. Next time we'll just order the 'orden personal' which was ample meat for 2 people making tacos. The 'orden personal' looks to make at least 4-5 tacos. Meat was delish and well-seasoned. Each of our orders came with 1 doradita, a deep-fried empanada filled with pork carnitas. Since it was deep-fried, it was hard and tough to bite into. Was afraid it might break a tooth! HAH! Also served was green tomatillo and red salsa, cilantro, and spicy, vinegar onions. Restaurant was very clean, as well as the bathrooms. Very reasonably priced menu items. Service was delivered with a smile--we will definitely return.

Probably best carnitas I’ve had in a long long time. The tortillas , the salsa, the spicy onions. Everything is fire. It’s cash only and it’s a great value! The service was great as well. Got samples of the meats and was walked through all the options. Love love love!
