Established in 2015

Eusebio Alvarez spent his entire adult life in the kitchen of one of America's seminal Interior Mexican restaurants. During the 30 years he worked at Fonda San Miguel, Alvarez benefitted from the knowledge of the legendary Diana Kennedy and founding executive chef Miguel Ravago, as well as chefs Roberto SantibanezAlma Alcocer-ThomasJeff Martinez, and even his own brother, Oscar Alvarez – one of the few Austin sous chefs who has assisted in the preparation of multiple dinners at the James Beard Foundation House

One of the hallmarks of any great restaurant is that it inspires and nurtures the talents of its employees, and that is certainly the case with Eusebio. Earlier this year, he struck out on his own to prepare the food of his homeland at Cielito Lindo in the Austin suburb of Cedar Park.

The plain exterior might create the impression that this is just another strip mall joint, but once inside, we found the new eatery cozy and comfortable. A coiled lariat and a cowboy hat hang above the door, evoking memories of chef Eusebio's youth on a rural Mexico ranch. The walls are painted a soft butter yellow using a sponge technique that creates a rustic adobe effect and they are accented with attractive blue stenciling just above table height. Roxana Alvarez manages her father's business and she says she chose the paint color scheme because it reminded her of a convent in their hometown of Sombrerete, Zacatecas.
