    Best tacos in Austin!

    My husband and I can't say enough good things about La Pera! Their food (and drinks!) won us over, and Beth and the team is so pleasant to work with! We absolutely loved the menu and drinks they put together for us, we always wanted tacos for our wedding here in Austin, but there's are elevated and delicious, perfect for an Austin wedding. Wish we could eat their food every week!! :D

    La Pera's reply:

    Aww you two!! THANK YOU SO MUCH - it was an absolute honor to serve you and your family at your wedding this last month, such a gorgeous setup & beautiful celebration.

    We are working on a brick & mortar location and hope to be able to make the dreams of having those tacos all the time come true sooner than later! Will absolutely keep you two updated there ;)

    Congrats to you two for tying the knot in style, we are so thrilled for you both in this new chapter of life & love!
