Carne Lenta at Vasek Garage


114 NE 2nd Street
Smithville TX 78957


Carne Lenta (Austin’s taco mini-chain Taco Flats) is Smithville, Texas’ newest sports bar and eatery with indoor and outdoor seating. At the former Micklethwait location downtown, Carne Lenta, which is Spanish for “slow meat,” serves slow-cook birria, barbacoa, carnitas, and picadillo, available by-the-pound and in tacos. The restaurant uses local cows, and Tony Olvera, who also worked the overnight pits at the locaiton, butchers everything in-house. The tortillas are homemade as well.

Drinks include boutique beers for a donation, which will be sent to rotating charities.
