Remember when President Barack Obama came to Austin during South By Southwest and made his first stop at Torchy’s Tacos?

Well apparently it’s a thing for U.S. presidents to grab some tacos when they come to Austin. According to Eater Austin, former president Bill Clinton ate some of Fresa’s Chicken al Carbon this week at a private fundraiser for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

While everyone else at brisket-filled El Rey tacos, Chef Rene Ortiz whipped up some vegan tacos just for Clinton. Ortiz called it “an amazing experience.”
