This place has the best barbacoa I've ever tried (and I've tried a lot in many places). Service is also great. Their prices are also very reasonable.

Cheko's Is a mom and pop eatery that serves home style Texmex cooking. The food is simple and inexpensive. Good fuel for a hungry hoard or just to stop your own stomach from complaining.

Need I say more. We made the mistake of only ordering 12 for a family of 4. The fastest eaters were circling like vultures over fresh road kill. Let's just say that we had to go back for more and may go back again tomorrow. I don't think I've been to any restaurant 3 days in a row. Just Yummy!

This little place is our little neighborhood go-to place. It is nothing fancy, but it is inexpensive, the food is good (the chips & hot sauce included) and there is a bar. Service can be spotty at times, but is always friendly. Plenty of parking. We dine here an average of a few times per month, and have never heard... More

We live in this neighborhood, and Cheko's has really turned into one of my favorites for grabbing a quality plate of Mexican food and not breaking the bank. The enchilada plates are all under $7, and are plenty of quality food so you leave satisfied. I had a barbacoa taco on my last visit, and their barbacoa is nicely seasoned... More

This place is fantastic! I work nearby and I eat here a few times each week. The food isn't the best mexican food I've ever had, but the prices make this place exceptional, especially for breakfast. Breakfast tacos are $1 and Migas are $4.25. For lunch, you can get loaded fajitas for $8.50. If you're in the mood for happy... More

You would think there would be cheap Mexican cafes all over Austin, but their isn't. Found this while shopping in the area and we were pleasantly surprised. Store front, not too divey (we don't mind dives at all) and GOOD inexpensive food. Varied menu too. Not same ole Tex Mex fare. Amazing drink specials. Cheko's owners are right there and... More

Cheko's is a small family owned Tex-Mex restaurant with great food. I stop in for the migas at least once a week. The prices are great and the food is well prepared.
