Whether you’re spending the afternoon at Zilker Park, Barton Springs, or Auditorium Shores, El Alma is a great spot to celebrate a succesful day with some queso and an avocadorita. The menu falls somewhere between Mexican and Tex-Mex, but the big draw here is the patio. It’s on the roof—up a flight of stairs that feel like climbing into a grotto—with shade, misters, and a view of Barton Springs Road. Head here for Happy Hour, melty queso fundido with chorizo, and an extensive menu of enchiladas stuffed with everything from spinach and roasted poblanos to braised and shredded duck.
