‘Hay Elotes’ serving authentic Mexican snacks

When Hay Elotes opened on Seventh Street in 2013, finding white Mexican corn in Austin was like “finding gold,” owner Jose Luis Cardona said. Cardona, who is from Honduras and came to Austin 19 years ago, had always been a lover of Mexican cuisine and decided to name the store after the shouts of Mexican street vendors.

Cardona said the support he received from the city and the Hispanic community fills him with great pride. Many of his customers travel to Hay Elotes locations to find elote on a stick, Mexican chips and aguas frescas.

“It shows the story of an immigrant that came here with dreams, and has made them come true,” Cardona said.
