    I liked this restaurant very much! My camarones a la diabla were soooo delicious and extra spicy, just the way I like. I recommend the enmoladas too and my Margarita was fabulous.

    If you are looking for that Mexican taste, this is the place, even with local ingredients it's pretty close. I loved shrimp besos and they have Mezcaaaal. I will be back to taste the Pozole.

    Took over an hour to get our food, which was mediocre at best. And while I waited, I had 4 margaritas and barely got a buzz.

    My downtown Tex-Mex breakfast place since the tragic closing of Las Manitas Avenue Cafe. There's better Text-Mex in Austin, but none as close to Hilton, Hampton, and Convention Center.

    Worst service of my life. I've never written a bad review about anywhere but felt so compelled tonight since this was, as mentioned the worst service of my life. The waiter DGAFed our existence.

    The enchiladas verde has a subtly sweet sauce that marries well with chicken. Be warned, a talented but very loud band plays some dinnertimes. —WC http://bit.ly/NlI3mX
