This little shop in the heart of downtown Austin is an ideal place to find souvenirs of your Texas (culinary) adventure. Beware, however: the hot sauces and salsas you will find here are probably hotter than what you have found in other restaurants. Among the hundreds of salsas, Firewater is the most popular and Dave's Insanity Special Reserve is the hottest. The spice rubs, barbecue sauces and marinades here are world-class, shipped to discerning palates around the country. Another specialty here are the chicken, veggie and black bean O'Shucks tamales, which you can eat there, take-out or have shipped anywhere.
