El Milagro closes iconic Sixth Street location, moves one block north

El Milagro, the popular chip and tortilla-maker that is based in Chicago but has deep roots in Austin, has closed its longtime location on East Sixth Street to move to another space at 905 E. Seventh St.

The Sixth Street store closed about three weeks ago, according to an employee in the store, and just like the old space, the new location carries fresh masa, tortillas and various kinds of chips and tostadas, all of which are made at a San Marcos production facility.

The East Austin store is open from Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. 4:30 p.m., Saturday from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

I’m trying to find out a little more about the history of the Sixth Street space. If you have any details or memories of the tortilleria, let me know by emailing abroyles@statesman.com or calling 512-912-2504.

El Milagro chips are known as some of the best in Central Texas, and you can buy them by the big bag at the retail location at 905 E. Seventh St. Matthew Odam / American-Statesman
