    Loved the Alma Blanca and the taquitos. A little over priced but very well done and gourmet.

  • Liana C.

    Service here is great, good selection even for vegetarians.

    Cubanita was 👌🏻 even if the service was slow (when it wasn't crowded...). Get the guac too!

    Very disappointing. Apps were acceptable but not at the price point. Lunch entrees were barely passable. Cubanito was greasy and the side of kettle chips were greasy, overcooked and mushy.

    Grilled 🍍 drinks, check em out

    Danielle Hayner · May 17
  • Andrea B.

    You have to try the Acapulco Ceviche and the surprisingly tasty cauliflower steak. The guacamole tasting app is also a must.

  • Gina E.

    Very slow service, but the food was OK.

    Guac Sampler? Yes please. The hard choice is Watermelon Martini or spicy marg!

    We tried the Macarel ceviche (very good), street corn (very good), chicken (very good), carnitas (very good), and steak (meat was good but covered in manchego cheese, which wasn't our thing) tacos

    This place was awful as a vegan. After 4 years of being in austin, I've never had any trouble. Eclectic menu. I ended up going with a vegetarian option but the black bean puree tasted burned.

    Sofía Aluma · December 8, 2014
  • B W.

    Awesome cocktails, great happy hour, killer vibe. Very trendy. Try the street corn. But, overpriced/overrated food and issues with service.

    B W · November 23, 2014

    Guacamole tasting and both ceviches are superb!

    Everything!! Chipotle purée and slivered almond guac, steak and manchego taco, chicken taco, chicken molé, and flourless chocolate cake dessert. The cocktails are amazing too!!

    The Carne Asada will change your life. The El Cubico is a personal favorite for a cocktail. It usually gets shared around the table, so buyer beware!

    Chilangos for brunch on the patio is the best. Wish they had Vietnamese ice coffee.

    One preparation you will never encounter anywhere else is costillas de puerco, pork ribs glazed with spicy guava and served with sweet plantains, pickled onions, fresh cheese, green salsa, & cilantro. Read more

    The "taquitos" are actually served like tacos (where I'm from, anyway) and some of the best I've ever had!
