    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.

    Great food! Items from breakfast/brunch menu are available until 4pm (in addition to lunch & dinner menu items).

    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.

    The Mexican creme caramel (I think its a mexican flan on the menu) is TO DIE FOR. You won't regret it ;) Totally unexpected awesome.

    Worst service - had to request ice every time for my drink, got my order wrong, there were bones in my chicken enchiladas, and took foreverrrr to get my ticket or pay.

    The food is good. The mimosa pitcher is better.

    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.

    A lot nicer on the inside!

  • Cash E.

    So wonderful and fresh, great parking at 11 a.m

    Cash Edwards · February 10, 2013

    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 · August 7, 2012

    Cool live music, I'm diggin' the vibes!
