Staff at these restaurants speak Spanish… Here are a few Mariposas’ Favorites:

Cheko’s on 2222 is a great choice for breakfast.

-Down South, we recommend La Mexicana. They have great authentic Mexican baked goods & breakfast, lunch or dinner. Open 24 hours!

-A great lunch & dinner place on 183 & Burnet is La Casita. They also have Mariachis on the weekends for brunch!

-While you ride around town, don’t forget to tune into http://kutx.org/. Their “Alt Latino” channel is on HD Radio or you can stream it from their player here.
