I’m not a huge fan of Mexican food, so that didn’t help my visit. However, we had been to a great, much cheaper Mexican restaurant two days before. The food was extremely expensive compared to other very good restaurants not far away. There were 6...More

I sat solo in the bar area where they offer a solid happy hour menu of drinks and snacks as well as full menu table service. Great crispy HH tacos - smaller in size but mighty in flavor: poke, squash al pastor. Margarita has cactus...More

We ate here last Thursday before SXSW kicked off. Interesting menu. We shared traditional guacamole, Acapulco ceviche, street corn and then three entrees with tortillas to use for tacos. Between the steak, chicken and branzino, the fish was my favorite. The rosé sangria was great.

We had lunch here recently with a large wedding group. Prices are mid-range and the service was friendly but somewhat slow. But considering how busy they were, it was excusable. Our guacamole, tacos, and bread pudding were good but nothing special. The coffee was dreadful...More

This downtown Mexican restaurant is not your typical Texan Mexican restaurant. It offers several types of Guacamole and salsas, served in small ramekins at large bowl prices ($12-14.00) served mercifully with a large bowl of tortilla chips. Ours had decent sized chips on the top...More

This place reminds me of the restaurants that charge a $$$-$$$$ amount when it should really be $$. One word to describe this place? Over inflated. Also, if you have $$$-$$$$ menus you should keep the loud, drunk folks at the front door. We could...More
