Located in the heart of East 6th Street, Licha’s has become a niche restaurant for Austinites craving a bite of interior México. The restuarant is named after owner, Daniel Brooks’ mother, Alicia “Licha” Rivera, who is one of six children raised by Pepe and Licha Rivera in Mexico City. The atmosphere at Licha’s is casual and familiar.
Inspired by the Mexican soulfood cooking that the owner was raised with, their menu is prepared by a team of passionate cooks. All of their masa products are made fresh and daily in-house and their proteins are thoughtfully brined and braised with a medley of herbs and spices. Each of their dishes – from their cazuelita de cochinita pibil, their tlacoyo de camarón con mole, to their sopes de lengua – include garnishes that are not commonly seen and offer a depth of flavor with each bite.
Hours of Operation are Tuesday through Thursday from 4 pm till 11 pm, Fridays from 4 pm till 12 am and Saturday from 12 pm till 12 am. Licha's is open for Sunday brunch from 11 am till 3 pm. Happy hour always takes place from Tuesday through Friday from 4 pm till 6 pm.
