Austin- Angie's Mexican Restaurant

Yesterday, I had lunch at Angie's on east 7th for the first time and loved it. The cheese enchiladas were the best I've had- even better than Enchiladas Y Mas or Dart Bowl. The sauce is flavorful and the cheese is creamy. The beef tacos are fried perfectly in home made tortillas. I can't wait to try other things on the menu.

    I'm somewhat of a purveyor of fine cheese enchiladas. Please describe the type of cheese used and the chili sauce. Thanks...

      Sorry for my late reply-I've been out of town. Judging from your very helpful post on cheese enchiladas above, I can see that you already found out they use American cheese. The cheese tastes VERY processed to me, but I still like it for some reason. My friend described Angie's enchiladas as "truck-stop style" and I'd have to agree. The chili sauce is pretty mild, with a small amount of ground beef. There is so much cheese that it kind of overtakes the chili sauce. The thing I really like about them is the homemade tortillas and the fact that everything is served piping hot. But yes...it is pretty lardy. Ummm....lard.

      I know a lotta folks like this one, but it's just too greasy for me, something I would never have thought possible. Even their corn tortillas have lard in them. I went once with a friend who ordered three cheese enchiladas with three fried eggs on top. I had a stent put in the next day, just from the smell.

        I'm going to have to agree with Greg on this one. They do have some tasty corn tortilla's (due to the lard, no doubt) that make for good gorditas, but I give the tacos a thumbs down. Their ground beef mixture tasted like fish last time I ate there. And they put grated American cheese on top of their tacos. Believe me, I know there'a place for American cheese in Tex-Mex dishes--it's just not my thing in an unmelted form sitting on lettuce. Also, their chile con carne is only fair. It's not as flavorful (and much greasier) than most. For my greasy enchiladas, I love Dart Bowl!!
