Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine took a pitstop at Taqueria Chapala after speaking at a campaigning event in Austin yesterday. He stopped by the taco spot just before 7 p.m., as Texas Tribune reporter Patrick Svitek, who was at the scene, told Eater. He also said that candidate did not order any food.

While at Taqueria Chapala, Kaine posed for photos with customers and staffers, and spoke to people, including with a man about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s views on Mexican people, while seated at a booth.

Kaine has a knack for picking out quality dining spots while on the campaign trail, like Fort Lauderdale's Betty's Restaurant & Barbecue, which is known for soul food.
