Taco X-press Since 1996

Maria’s Taco Xpress is a must-visit Austin eatery. Eclectic and eccentric, Taco Xpress captures the best of Austin and what helps Keep Austin Weird. Deemed “South Austin’s Taco Queen” by the Austin Chronicle, owner Maria Corbalan has been satisfying taco lovers all over Austin for the past 21 years. You can often find Maria at the Taco Xpress giving out hugs, laughing, and greeting everyone warmly.

Among our regulars and out-of-town visitors, we’ve had the pleasure of hosting Rachel Ray and Guy Fieri, both of whom paid us a visit while exploring the city of Austin. As well as many other celebrities over the years, like regular Johnny Depp. Come “experience” the lively atmosphere at Maria’s, and see why so many people call this place home.


Featuring free live music, Taco Xpress is a ride-or-die supporter of Austin’s artistic community and is always looking for ways to incorporate art and music within its funky and creative atmosphere. We pioneered Hippie Church movement where guests come to dance, eat, and drink, for over 21 years now. Come to visit us every Sunday and try our fresh mimosas and strawberry margaritas. Feel free, unwind, and dance till your heart is content.

See the events page for more information about upcoming events, including our Boobie Bingo, which lands on the first Tuesday of every month.


In Memory of our Dear Laura Rose
Come visit on Sunday to experience the original Austin Hippie Church. Treat your ears to live gospel grooves and fill your stomach with Rachael Ray’s favorite Miga Taco or Guy Fiery’s highly recommended El Pastor taco.


Taco Xpress offers a full bar with the friendliest bartenders in town. All you gotta do is pick your poison, and enjoy it just the way you like it. We recommend the strawberry margaritas.
