    Delicious mexican spot with an extensive menu. We loved our queso, tacos, lamb and duck in mole. Head back to the patio, sip on a spicy margarita and enjoy the food!

    Good margaritas and fresh guacamole. Worth asking about the preparations for the mains if you don't like surprises and/or "concepts"

    Love, love, love! I want to eat the menu this place is so good. Most of menu is gluten free and on point! Just don't eat all the chips before your food comes 😜

    Basically one of my favorite go to places in ATX. Authentic upscale Mexican cuisine that makes me proud of my heritage at a very affordable price.

    Choriqueso and tlacayos were yum! The Paloma margarita was too strong and the vampiro was just ok. Chelas were really cold as they are supposed to be ;)

    Our dishes were delicious (pozole and choriqueso) but we were having some serious dish envy with the plates around us. We will definitely be back!

    If there was a best mole in Texas competition, I would want to go to it. Oh. The mole here is pretty sick good too.

    Coming from the northeast I run into a lot of bad Mexican food. On my trip to Austin I tried a lot of good Mexican food I never knew existed. Licha's Cantina was far and away the best I've ever had.

    The small menu is packed with inventive cuisine, a combo of street-food staples and popular cantina dishes. Order a zippy cocktail (we like El Zorro), sit back, and soak up Licha's lovely, homey vibe. Read more

    Cazuelas and mezcal are on the menu crafted by longtime industry veteran Daniel Brooks. The Mexico City native worked a quick swicheroo in the old Papi Tino's space. Read more
