AUSTIN, Texas — Austin’s El Arroyo restaurant is famous for its sign, which changes daily with funny messages.
On Oct. 5, the restaurant posted an image of its sign on Instagram that read, “Free tacos if your name is Lizzo,” in honor of the rapping, singing and flute-playing superstar who was in town for the first weekend of the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
“@lizzobeeating pls hang out with me #ElArroyoSign #ElArroyoATX,” El Arroyo wrote in the caption.
And while the restaurant probably didn’t expect its joke to go anywhere, on Sunday Lizzo offered a simple response: “Yes!!! PLEASE”
Lizzo was asked about the exchange in an interview on The Billy the Kidd Show on 96.7 KISS FM. Co-host Anne Hudson showed Lizzo the photo and said making the El Arroyo sign was “the biggest deal ever in Austin.”
“I’m gonna have to go to El Arroyo,” Lizzo told the radio show. “Because I might need to get some tacos.”
Madison Walser, who does social media for El Arroyo, said the whole team there was so excited she responded.
“We are huge Lizzo fans!” she said.
Lizzo is set to perform for weekend two of the ACL Festival on Sunday.
Your move now, Lizzo – taco ‘bout suspense!
