Best Totopos y Salsa in Austin
My longtime favorite Los Altos recently upped their game by improving their totopo sourcing, ensuring their continued status as my #1.
What's your favorite restaurant for chips and salsa?
Any places in town frying their own totopos?
What places are charging for chips and salsa. I always like to avoid the usurers.

I like Angie's for chips & salsa; the salsa is pleasantly chunky and quite hot compared to most, while their chips are stout, reasonably salted and ever so slightly greasy, suggesting an in-house origin, perhaps derived from their excellent and similarly stout corn tortillas.
Also tasty are the verde sauce at La Morada and the smooth red (a style I don't usually enjoy) at Amaya's Taco Village.
Possible discrediting factor: I love the salsa at Serrano's.

I love the green sauce at La Tapatia. I don't know why they don't serve it by default. Maybe it's a way for them to tell the regulars from the newbies. Very reminiscent of the doña sauce at Tacodeli, but the chips at Tapatia are free and you can get ridiculous amounts of food for less than the price of two Tacodeli tacos.
For red salsa, I enjoy Vivo's smokey version. Last time I ate there, my companion and I polished off an entire bowl and barely had room left for our entrees. There's a garlic bite to it that I just dig.
The Screaming Goat has fresh made chips and great green chili queso.
