My dream of starting El Perrito began in 2018 when I realized there wasn’t a place in ATX that offered local dishes I grew up on. Hoping to bring a taste of home to the city, El Perrito finally opened its doors in 2019. Born and raised in El Paso (central/NE) Texas, I’m bringing authentic Chuco style flavors and cooking to Austin! 

Dishes include: Tacos Ahogados, Flautas,Taquitos, Crispy Tacos, Juarez style Hotdogs, Burritos, Quesadillas, and Enchiladas. 

Chuco style chili, All beef Hot dog , Mexican shredded cheese

Mentioned in Texas Monthly’s “2020 Taco Tour Places to Eat In Texas” for Taquitos/ flautas + tacos dorados. 

Known for EL PASO STYLE FOOD, try anything on the menu.
