    Now that we are moving through the menu I realize that the food is more than so-so per my last review. Its always good and always consistent. That coupled with stellar service you can't go wrong!!!

    It's all about service here. The food is so so (The fish tacos are my recommended choice.) but the staff is so amazing. Love it all the more for that. I come here withy 6 yr old alllll the time.

    The don margarita is awesome. Felt bad because we kept running our waiter. I would come back here to drink but I rate the food about a 4.

    If you want not hot at all stuffed jalapeños get the hot Latin bites. Bland, bland, bland.

    Open early for breakfast everyday ; oddly not easy to find breakfast in Austin

    Trust the special, especially if it includes tortilla soup.

    Be sure to tell the waiter that you are ordering from the kids menu. Even if your child is pointing to what they want on the kids menu.

    I don't like to be that person but not highly impressed with the food. Either it was bland or bitter (Carne guisada dinner)
