When you want to eat some good Tex-Mex without any chance of randomly running into that person you keep half-trying to make dinner plans with, head to Julio’s in Hyde Park. This cash-only spot is a neighborhood staple and you’re more likely to see a few UT students or families here than someone you matched with on an app. Order some tacos or the roast chicken, have a margarita, and start thinking of a good excuse to put off meeting up with that person for another week.
