Had dinner last night with GLS, AG, and his fiance S at El Chile Cafe y Cantina. It was the first time I'd been to the near East Austin restaurant. I was impressed with the casual atmosphere and higher-end interior menu. The Rajas con Queso was fantastic, though the Downtown Charlie's Special was a bit on the dry side (I had the chicken). That said, people go there for the sauces, but most aren't on my diet. Downsides: no whole wheat tortillas (I brought my own) and only one ladies room to serve the entire restaurant (though there was never a wait).
