DIG INTO A TASTE SOUTH OF THE BORDER

Volume II, Issue 1 (Fall 2007)

Surrounded by the bustle of the UT campus, Janitzio is nestled along a major street that never seems to slow. Within its bright orange and yellow walls, decorated with colorful broken glass columns and traditional Mexican art, one can escape to the sights and tastes of another country.

The Mexican food served at Janitzio is made in the Michoacan style and is one of the best in Austin. From its spicy and savory green enchiladas to its crispy and flavorful chicken flautas, Janitzio consistently serves quality food at affordable prices.

Lunch specials offered Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., include a wide variety of dishes priced only at $5.99. It is quite convenient for those coming from the campus or downtown area. The restaurant opens at 7:00 a.m. on weekdays, perfect for a quick breakfast taco to start off the day.

Service is fast, the restaurant is clean but even better, the staff is helpful and friendly.

Janitzio also offers a wide variety of beverage choices. Other than typical drinks such as Coca-Cola brand sodas and tea, there’s also Mexican bottled sodas and horchata. I highly recommend horchata, a rice based sweet drink. On ice, horchata is deliciously refreshing and thirst quenching. It is a great treat to find horchata served in Austin, much less as impeccably made as it is at Janitzio.

The restaurant itself does not serve alcohol but encourages patrons to bring their own. Dine inside the cozy restaurant or enjoy the fall weather on the patio. Take out is also available, as well as delivery service.

Located at 600 W. Martin Luther King, Janitzio’s hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays. It is closed on Sundays.
