El Borrego de Oro has been serving Michoacan-style Mexican food in South Austin for over 15 years now, in that time developing a loyal fanbase across the whole city. They have a large menu of breakfast and lunch tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, and other classic Mexican staples. They also do lamb birria tacos here, with just a hint of gamey-flavor, on house-made corn tortillas. And we devoured them all in our car before we even left the parking lot. They also make a great lamb or goat stew - served with a side of tortillas - perfect for cold, rainy days (or really, just about any day).
