El Chilito was born as a fast-casual approach to El Chile, a contemporary take on modern Tex-Mex dining located just a few blocks west on Manor Rd. Dubbed El Chile’s “little brother,” El Chilito, uses many of the same flavors, but in a more laid-back atmosphere and lot of local charm.
Hand-built planters enclose an outdoor patio dotted with brightly colored picnic tables, umbrellas and strings of lights that stay up year round. We offer a full espresso bar that complements our Tex-Mex and interior Mexican influences. Our recipes are made from scratch, in-house every day and we proudly serve El Milagro tortillas, Texas Coffee Traders and Texas-raised beef.
Our commitment to quality food and freshness has made El Chilito an epicenter of the Cherrywood community and a widely-recognized East Austin staple. We’ve even received a nod from the New York Times!
