Javelina is one of the rare full packages on Rainey where you can drink beer, wine, and liquor - and get a solid meal until 1:30am (later than any other spot on the street). The layout of the space is a bit broken up - there’s an indoor bar, then seating both inside and out - but you shouldn’t have trouble finding a table to hang at. Their miga burger with a fried egg on top and blackened fish tacos make for a perfect dinner before your night takes off, and their fried chicken tacos and pork chile cheese fries are a great late-night option if you’re still hungry. The last kitchen to close on Rainey Street holds a special place in our heart.
