Located in the Warehouse District in Austin at 214 West 4th Street is Chispas, one of the newest restaurants.
Started by Jason Dady (award winning Central Texas chef hailing from my home town of Coppell ), Chispas offers “casual tacos”, a fantastic daily made salsas, and of course great margaritas.
In Spanish, the word “Chispas” means “sparks”, or a really strong margarita that can be found in the San Antonio area.
Already well-known in the San Antonio restaurant scene thanks to his hit Italian restaurants Tre Trattoria, Tre Enoteca, Shuck Shack, Two Bros BBQ Market (with pit-master and Eater Young Gun Laura Loomis), B&D Ice House, and Bin Tapas. Chispas is Jason’s first Austin restaurant and feedback from the local community has been huge:
Look no further than Chispas for great tacos in Austin!
It’s a mix of SA and Austin in one spot. Great margs and tacos made with fresh ingredients! Tortillas are made IN HOUSE – flour, AND corn! Salsas? Made in the house too! Guacamole? Yep, made to order.

ALREADY my favorite taco spot in Austin, which is saying something given my San Antonio taco taste. Jason Dady’s first foray into the ATX food scene is off to an amazing start, and I’m excited to see where they go!
The chips and queso were a strong commencement to what turned into an awesome meal. There were so much flavor and smokiness to what is usually a “filler” dish, and we wanted more right off the bat. We knew better than to dive too deep, especially since we saw tacos on the horizon! The San Antonian taco is a must-try, especially when paired with a margarita and a dash or two of salsa for a kick. Service was excellent, and the ambiance was laid-back enough for us to want to sip on a post-dinner libation.
All in all, we were pretty floored by the experience. It’s great to see local Texans like the Dadys bringing a legit Tex-Mex twist to downtown Austin, and we’ll be back to sample more as soon as we can!
