Family owned and operated in Austin, TX since 1985


El Mercado started on the front porch of our south Austin location in 1985, serving breakfast tacos at a Mexican food market. The market’s gone, but the tacos stayed! You can still find the breakfast tacos on Saturday and Sunday mornings in all three of our locations but this favorite local staple expanded to offer you more. At El Mercado, everything is prepared daily with fresh, healthy ingredients and has stayed local and family owned to this day!
