El Perrito is a trailer in South Austin serving El Paso-style tacos, something of a rarity in Austin. Get the very good tacos ahogados (aka drowned tacos), in which fried flautas—filled with shredded chicken or ground chuck and potato—get doused in a spicy tomato-based chile sauce, sprinkled with cheese, and then topped with a salsa verde. The red chile sauce is so good you’ll want to drink it on its own. We’re also fans of their crispy tacos topped with shredded lettuce, tomato, and grated Muenster-style cheese. Keep an eye out for their brick and mortar, opening soon.
