5. Jeremiah the Innocent {21st and Guadalupe}

Spray-painted onto the side of a building on the Drag, I don’t really know who Jeremiah the Innocent is but I’m glad he’s there, as are many others who routinely take photos posing next to the friendly frog.

12. Our Lady of Guadalupe {1628 E. Cesar Chavez}

Located on the front wall of Los Huaraches restaurant. My guess is there are plenty of murals in ATX depicting La Virgen, but this is one I see regularly when I head there for some of the best Mexican breakfasts in town.
