About Us

ZuZu Handmade Mexican Food serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner—all made using the freshest ingredients, prepped each morning, and prepared when ordered.  We offer daily specials throughout the week, and get especially excited about new menu items, like our housemade pulled pork or slow-simmered Picadillo.  ZuZu is available for dine-in or pick-up, and delivery is available through Dine on Demand.  Full service catering and catering pick-up are also available.


ZuZu Handmade Mexican Food has been in Austin since 1992 and has been family-owned and operated for more than 20 years.  In fact, families have made the restaurant what it is today.  Thanks to long-time patrons (“regulars”-you know who you are…), we now enjoy generations of family members joining us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Kids who remember the weekly ritual of dining at Kids’ Eat Free nights are now relying on those same signature pureed black beans to feed their own children.  But the family connection doesn’t stop there.  It is families who work, and have worked, in the restaurant who developed and/or fine-tuned almost all the recipes we now serve so proudly.  Sisters, aunts, cousins, and uncles from the Hernandez families have worked for owner, Russell Arnold, since the doors first opened.  Thanks, in part, to their generosity and dedication, we are able to serve you dishes that are lovingly made.  So from our family to yours, please enjoy!  We hope you’ll continue to visit us for another 20 years.
