ATXReview

La Mancha is one of our favorite spots to bring out-of-towners looking for a real-deal Tex-Mex experience, complete with sizzling fajitas and papel picado crossing the airways. It’s exactly the right amount of kitschy we’re looking for when we just want to sit back with a large, cheap margarita and ingest a lot of cheese, tortillas, and grilled meats in various forms. They’re located near Burnet and North Loop, with a large patio and plenty of indoor seating.
