Maybe it’s because we hardly left our house that year, but we’re pretty sure ATX appeared out of nowhere at the end of 2020. This takeout spot (you order from a window) is located on a residential side street in Lincoln Square. The Tex Mex menu is full of things like birria tacos, elotes, and queso blanco. Their birria tacos are made with brisket, and come with a rich consomé that really complements the smoky meat. We really like their baby back and St. Louis-style ribs, which come with a thick, sweet sauce we really like. And while you won’t find classic BBQ sides like cornbread or mac and cheese, the elotes and queso are so perfect you won’t even miss them.
