What we do
LOCAL | MODERN MEXICAN
El Topo was founded as a love letter to Mexican food as it's cooked in Texas. Tex-Mex as it's traditionally served, with pre-packaged, commodity ingredients and vague connections to either Texas or Mexican terroir, is a force El Topo stands staunchly against. We serve food that we've made from scratch or rigorously sourced from ethical purveyors. We work closely with Urban Harvest and the vendors of the farmer's market to bring food to you that is exciting, nurturing, and memorable.
