    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.

    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.

    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

    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 - 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.

    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.
