Polvos is the only place to take out-of-towners who need to be figuratively punched in the face with Austin's diverse and youthful culinary spirit. [Eater 38 Member]
We looooove Polvos queso. However, if you're still sitting in the parking lot until a table opens up, Polvos might take your drink orders while you wait!
Awesome mexican food - try the fish. Potent margaritas, watch out!
Get a pitcher of margaritas and some salsa from the salsa bar then chill in the parking lot till your table is ready.
Pay using Tabbedout!
Sit on the patio and share a pitcher of margaritas with a buddy. PS: black salsa FTW!
The brown salsa is TO DIE FOR. I could drink it it's so freaking good!!!
Fabulous salsa, mmmmm
Holy frozen margaritas!!!!
Ceviche is amazing - and cheap!
Amazing pickle/salsa bar. Don't fear the trailer-parky decor. This is THE spot for Tex-Mex in Austin.
Go different and get the Tamale plate, fresh and fantastic! The salsa bar is great but if you want some real heat ask the waiter for the extra hot salsa they have in the kitchen... caliente!!!
Pescado al mojo de ajo: totally worth not being able to kiss anyone for at least 3 days after.
Get a pitcher of margaritas. Fun for everyone!
Best Chillaquilles ever! Must have!
poor service, stale chips c- food
By far the best in cc Austin
Very crowded, mediocre service, but great food! Loved the shrimp fajitas!
Fun fact: Polvos was the very first Tabbedout venue ever!
There's ALWAYS a long line outside.. slip past the hostess and get yourself a drink at the bar inside!
Karla was my waitress she was awesome and their enchiladas are shuttled good. Guacamole is bomb too
Ranchero Fajitas are Deeeelish!
Love that place.
it's tex-mex. do not be fooled into thinking it's actually mexican food...
One word civiche! All of the seafood dishes are very good here. The get your own salsa bar kinda sucks but the seafood is worth it!
Bring a sweater, it's freezing in here!
I hear this is some of the best mexican food in Austin.. Going to check it out soon..
Margaritas are potent but delicious. Love the self-serve salsa bar. I got enchiladas and they were damn good.
The Fish Fajita's are Amazing,ESP on the patio with a pitcher of margaritas;)
Craziness on the weekends but so worth it ;)
Loud sorority girls. You'll probably hear Macarena played on the stereo. The red and black salsas are okay. Don't fill up on the pickled carrots or you won't want to order an overpriced entrée.
Best breakfast tacos
Regular red salsa is perfect for spice pansies, fajitas are a piece of heaven!
Try the Bubbly Moses you won't leave disappointed!
Coconut margarita. Do it. Fajitas ranchero=amazing. Big enough to split if you fill up on salsa bar like I do.
Worth the long wait time during peak hours
Awesome patio and margarita pitchers!!!!!!!!
Amazing Mexican, home made tortillas, strong drinks!
Tortilla's Soup is sooooooo YUMMY !!
OH MY GOD THE TACOS.
Order the chile relleno al nogal!!!
Polvos, I love you. and I will always, but for the love of everything awesome about your patio, please stop turning into 'Club Polvos' at 8 pm. Music=too loud and crappy.
GET THE BEEF FAJITASSSSSSSSSSSS
Killer Mexican Martinis and kitschy vibe makes this a fun weekend spot. Love the brown salsa (salsa bar!), ceviche and enchiladas. Impressive seafood options.
The must try Awesome Mexican Cuisine! Killer location, deadly margaritas. A must do for the out-of-towners.
Delicious tacos al pastor. Yummy!! Great margaritas too. My friend had enchilada & it was delicious. I would only go at off times because it gets crowded.
Fish tacos are bombbbb
Decent prices, good salsa, worst service ever
