    Amazing service, delicious food! Our server Briana was outstanding; very attentive and pleasant! The manger Sara came to our table, welcomed us, and even gave us desert on the house for our 1st visit!

    Even though nothing on the menu is already vegan, they are super nice about modifying things to fit your needs. All in all it is a great place with a really thoughtful and friendly staff.

    Had guacamole as an appetizer. And the chicken enchiladas as my dinner. Those enchiladas had plenty of chicken! Food was delicious, as were the flour tortillas. Service was great. I'll be back.

    Good: large portions, friendly servers, dessert platter (pictured: ice cream, tres leches, sopapillas - trust me, you won't regret it!) Bad: crowded, loud, pricey drinks. Not quite typical Tex-Mex.

    Incredible service! Best I've had in Austin area in literally years. Ask for Casey as your server. You won't be disappointed. Also make sure to get the tomatillo salsa.

    Basically a party every night at a Pappa's restaurant. So so so much food, check out the pulled pork tacos but get a box right away, you don't want to be eating all of that. Trust me

    Try ordering an off the menu margarita made with Herradura Anejo and Gran's well worth the premium price.
