You may not expect much from this little outpost off of Highway 290, but Gordo's Tortas serves up some seriously impressive Tex Mex BBQ that I just can't get enough of.

Look for Gordo's Tortas heading west on Highway 290

Gordo's is a family-run trailer that started out selling breakfast tacos and have since branched out into barbecue (including by-the-pound). They are known for their slow-smoked Texas bbq, particularly the pulled pork and brisket. Since discovering this delicious hidden gem, I've sampled quite a bit of the menu - and once you taste it you'll see why!

First off, the breakfast tacos are jam-packed with fixings. You can select your size (small or large) and choose from Tex Mex or BBQ options. On my first visit I opted for breakfast sausage, potato, cheese, and beans for a mere $2.50. I loved that there were no rules about how many items you could choose.

Since then we have sampled several of the BBQ choices as takeout, including brisket, sausage and pulled pork. The pulled pork was the absolute star - can't wait to get it again.

Can't decide between Tex Mex or BBQ? Never fear. For lunch we chose the Mexican Style Burrito with brisket, which was a delicious, mouth-watering blend of both. It included beans, rice, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomato, pico and jalapeno, and again you can choose the size that matches your appetite. Next time I am without question trying the torta!

LIke many trailers in Austin, Gordo's has a great outdoor setup. Relax under the gazebo, bring your pet, and even get in a round of foozball while you wait for your meal.

Head out west and check out this well kept secret! Get there early before they sell out.
