Good Menudo in SW Austin?

Has my first bowl of menudo soup at a Neuvo Leon -- big mistake! Pretty good flavor but the tripe was too chewy. Any places recommended in SW Austin area where it's cooked for a longer period of time and the tripe is more edible?

      1. in way sw austin, I have had good menudo at chapala #3. This is on the 290 feeder, just before the Y in Oak Hill. This is not affiliated with the more upscale Chapala that has been panned on this board. Anyway, the tripe in the menudo is tender, but hominy is added after the fact. They ask you if you want some before adding it. Could be spicier, but all in all a pretty good bowl. They have posole on weekends, too, but I have yet to try it.
