You get good and tasty food and a lot of food. The best tortilla chips I have ever eaten. Fast service.

This food is perfectly spiced, generous portions, and beautifully presented. I had chicken fajitas, delicious. Friends had burritos which they also loved. The atmosphere is airy and casual, outdoors or indoors. Not too loud, and not too busy.

We had dinner here with another couple and really enjoyed the unique taste of the food and the atmosphere. They have their own idea of Mexican food that is really good. The drinks are great as well as the service. Prices are not too bad.

I had always wanted to eat here; but, the lack of parking made me shy away. A friend finally drove me there and I was so happy we went!

Margaritas are small but good. The enchiladas with verde sauce are some of the best around. Our server was very good and food came out quickly for a crowded Sunday afternoon.

The Casa Margarita was disappointing. Very sour and limey, not enough triple sec. Chips, salsa, and queso were very good. Tacos were good, not great. Biggest disappointment was the seating. Three feet from the stationary bus cart which every noisily used and left messy. Very...More

Their drinks are tasty, the vibe and atmosphere is very "Austin," but not a big fan of their food. Very bland and not that tasty.
