Have been here s real times and always like it. We went last time because we wanted to sit outside . Waiter - food and drinks are good only problem is the homeless people that constantly bother you. I would recommend it.

Best hot tamale I've had in many years! Love the atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. Fantastic margaritas too!

Started off with complimentary nachos, pico de gallo, salsa verde and salsa. The nachos were freshly made and the salsas were spicy and delicious, not the bland variety you get everywhere. Super delicious and unlimited. The fajitas and tacos we ordered were excellent; flavored perfectly and large portions. The service was quick and friendly. It's a must go in Austin.

We are not big Mexican food eaters, but figured that since we are in Texas we should go for it. You will not be disappointed! We started with the delicious chicken vegetable soup topped with rice. So yummy! Then we shared a salad topped with grilled chicken. Chips are delicious! If you are in Austin this place is a must!!!

The food was pretty good. Drinks were good. Outdoor stage where they have music was lots of fun. Family friendly.

Have eaten there no less than 20 x . Always at least good , sometimes excellent . Very relaxed , down to earth place . Never know who you will see having a drink there. I have sat at bar next to a-listers just like anyone else off the street. Not sure who doesn't like the margaritas but my guess... More

Hip taco bar with interesting decor. There is a large bar area for great deals on food and drink during Happy Hour from 3-6pm Monday to Friday. In-house made chips and salsa were delivered to our table as soon as we sat down. We ordered several different tacos as well as some local beers. All items were good and the... More

Authentic and delicious Mexican food. Highly recommend when in Austin. We also received excellent customer service which is hard to come by sometimes so we really appreciated that.
