Our Story (New)

The Last Queso Stop Before a Bunch of Yoga Studios - over the years we've covered every food pun imaginable while never forgetting witty commentary on current events. We're always happy to take sign submissions from customers and the internet!

See how our story began, and a few of our key milestones over the years. 



In 1975, we began serving up Tex-Mex with a side of laughs, and first unveiled our famous marquee sign that stands on the corner of West 5th and Campbell in Austin, Texas that people have come to know and love.



In 2016, we began posting our daily marquee signs to our Instagram, which has to-date featured more than 2,000 signs and garnered a following of over 500,000 followers.



After decades of laughs, we decided to put all of our fan favorite marquee signs into action, and released our very first coffee table book: the Big Book of Signs Volume 1 for holiday season in 2017.



In 2020, after seeing how much y’all loved the books, we decided to go all-in on the marquee merchandise, and expanded our selection to include Mugs, Magnets, Coasters, Tea Towels, and more! Click here to shop the full selection.  



As a part of an elaborate April Fools Day prank, we ended up announcing our first product collaboration with our friends over at YETI and launched a collection of El Arroyo x YETI which quickly has become a fan favorite and top selling product set.



We've been serving great Tex-Mex food in Austin for more than 25 years and we've loved every second of it.

Thanks, Austin, and here's to 25 more!
