    Huge, authentic menu. Everybody raves about the avocado marg but there are so many other great options too!
  • Karolin B.
    Avocado Magarithas are really good as well as the salsa
  • Kara G.
    The avocado margarita is divine! I got the tacos al pastor with red tortillas due to Foursquare recs, and enjoyed them, though I like flour tortillas better. Don't fill up on the chips - not amazing.

    Staff was great but the food was mediocre. Chips were so thin, portions were tiny. Definitely better options nearby.

    Such a south Austin classic. The chicken mole or shrimp enchiladas are probably my favorite. Get the salsa sampler! Will help guide your entree choice. Avocado margaritas are famous for a reason!

    Veggie tamales are great - wonderful portions. If vegan, sub out the rice since it is made with chicken stock; however, the beans are good to go (no lard/cheese/whatnot). Limited sub options otherwise

    The cancun rellano was really good, if you're looking for a delcious, flavorful, healthier dish! Also 'splurge' on the salsa sampler! You'll be surprised by the number of salsa & the flavor profiles!

    You're a damn fool if you don't come here to eat the Tacos El Pastor with bananas and refried beans on the side and an avocado margarita to wash it down. Prices are cheap and the chips are addicting.

    Despite having over 150 4sq photos and a billion tips leftover from #sxsw, this place still has charm, kitsch, and most importantly, next level Mexican food. Our crew hit home runs with the mole.

    The Avocado Margarita is creamy and tart, with a distinct nutty finish that only fresh avocados can provide. For something a little lighter, try the delicately floral Bevo Rita.
