We are in the area & I heard this was good so we checked it out. We started with a Margarita flight. Chose 4 flavors to taste. It was a nice way to sample a few flavors & they were good. I had the Gollos Pollos & it was good. My wife had the spinach quesadilla & liked hers too.... More

I ate here twice in a row and had excellent service both times. The food is brought out super fast and the wait staff helped each other's tables out with clearing of dishes and drink refills. The employee morale was very upbeat which made for a nice meal despite it being super busy. The employees were all hard workers and... More

Very family friendly and spacious. The daily specials are worth it. Decent portions. Place is a good place to order pickup either by yourself or through Uber Eats.

Good for both Mexican or American breakfasts and all day as well. We did breakfast - Migas, breakfast tacos, great sopapias, efficient wait staff. Clean, including the bathrooms. Neat, cheerful greeters. We like it. 30.07 sign.

We go here on a regular basis. AS one who grew up on REAL Mexican food and now living in the Austin area, this is the place to go. Nice staff. Lots of seating. Ample parking. Lots and lots of entrees. A good assortment of alcoholic beverages if that is needed. Food is plentiful. You will not walk away hungry.

Very good menu, enchiladas always very good, but this is this place to come when you have a craving for queso. If heaven doesn't have the Texican's Queso Flameado, I'm not sure I want to go. (As if I'd be invited!)

Oh, Texican! What is it about you that keeps me coming back, over and over again? It's not the ambiance, although the place is comfortable. It's not the food, although I've never had a meal I didn't love here. It's not even the service, even though it's fast, friendly, and attentive. IT'S THE SALSA. I could eat it every day,... More

I live around the corner from this restaurant. The only constant is the service is always bad from the waitstaff. The bartenders are much more attentive. I usually order whatever is on special because otherwise I feel normal prices are overpriced for the quality. The frozen margaritas are nothing to write home about.

Went with my significant other during dinner time and there was about a 10-15 minute wait. I am not sure why because there were empty tables in the patio area not being offered to anyone waiting. The daily special was reasonably priced. Appetizer and 2 entrees for $20 with 2 beverage purchase. Flour tortillas tasted fresh and hand made. They... More
