High quality food and service (though mighty noisy) at this Austin Tex-Mex. We had Mexican rose wine, which was really not bad, especially after the first glass. Very good guacamole to start (prepared table side) and Diablo Pasta with shrimp both excellent.

This is a family favorite & we usually always grab a meal here sometime during our Austin visit. Although there are now multiple locations of this little gem, we always prefer the original on 6th Street downtown! Management has changed & they have made some changes to lower costs & sadly it shows. No more free chips at the table... More

I had the shrimp and guacamole starter and the steak burrito for main. Starter was excellent - clean tasting and well presented Steak burrito was pretty tasteless and fatty with a lot of unpleasant sauce. Service was average. Just OK

We were super impressed with the food here. Sat on the patio overlooking the hills and it was great. My only critique is to tell your servers to put ice in the pitcher before refilling tea. It's called iced tea!

Went here with a native of Austin, and enjoyed the meal. Our guest ordered the Chicken fried Chicken and it was so large she could not finish it. I had a fish dish, as did my wife, and we really enjoyed it. We went during the week, and ate early, so there was no wait and it was not crowded.... More

When we arrived, we were told our wait would be 5 minutes, and the hostess would come to the bar to get us. 15 minutes later. we went to ask about our table. The hostess said, "I called out your names." I said,"We were in the bar." The hostess said, "I don't remember faces."...She might be in the wrong business.... More

Tried to go here one evening, but the place was packed ... no available parking except via valet. SO, went the next day for lunch ... close parking and immediate seating. Lots of interesting choices on the menu. For lunch they have a very reasonably priced ($9.95) combination for those wanting a lighter meal ... mine was a seafood enchilada... More

We found the establishment neat, clean and well staffed with friendly human resources. Although during NFL payoffs the unanticipated appearance was rather sparse of crowds or herds of people. During an exchange our server indicated the Restaurant was Tex Mex, but the menu lacked fundamental Carne Asada, touting the Southwestern Grill restaurant style. We had seating provided for 18 individuals,... More

Try the chicken chili relleno! One of the better ones I've ever had. A little heat too. Colleague very happy with the trout salad. Good service. Nice place.
