Their tacos are out of this world! The flavors, the ingredients, and the presentation were all on point. I tried several different tacos and it was hard to choose a favorite as each one really stood out. My top two were the Pollo Mole con Queso Fresco and the Barbacoa de Borrego. The chicken was tender and juicy with a nice mole sauce that had a hint of sweetness while the lamb was cooked just right - super flavorful and so succulent! I also must mention their sides - their homemade salsas were amazing.

The warm service combined with those delicious tacos made for an unforgettable experience. I'd highly recommend Machetes, Quesadillas Gigantes to anyone looking for some of the best tacos in North Austin!
