“Papalote’s is a really unique place I think.

It feels very authentic, and obviously so is all the food.  I had never been there before Marlon suggested it, but I definitely plan on going more now.

I tried the “Pastor Tacos” which is described as “Pineapple jaujillo rubbed grilled pork topped with onions and cilantro,” and I was immediately a fan.  The pork was soft, had great flavor, and was complimented well by the onions and cilantro.

I really enjoyed my tacos, and also had a good time hanging out with the guys at Papalote’s.

I was the one to suggest we go to Papalote’s.

It’s somewhere that I’ve eaten at a lot of times and really enjoy being at.  The tacos I like to get are the “Pollo A La Parilla.”  They are very good, especially because they are so unique.

This puts them above a lot of other taco places in Austin, which can all start to feel the same.  The grilled chicken has a lot of flavors, which I couldn’t distinguish, but when the ingredients come together it’s always delicious.

Papalote’s is an obvious Austin classic.

Over the years I have lived here, I’ve heard the name over and over again through my classmates, and was not disappointed when I finally got around to trying it.

My taco of choice was the “Carnitas Tacos.”  I’ve had a lot of ‘carnitas tacos’ in my day, but I must say this was one of the best ones.  The meat was perfectly soaked, shredded, and melted in your mouth instantly.  I would always recommend this if you live on the south side of Lamar and are looking for a great taco.
