    The atmosphere was great. The service, however, was far less than sub par. Upon sitting at bar while putting our name down for a table outside with the no personality waiter/host (guy w/ponytail)

    Mexican martinis are no cliche here. Get them early and often.

    The less than sub par bartender didn't greet us bc he was glued to the basketball game on tv (ok? Stay at home then? U at work.) we finally asked for a drink menu and I guess he felt offended by that

    Head to this spot east of downtown for something more casual than La Condesa but more formal than a simple taqueria.

    Sad because the food was great and so were the drinks. The employees, however, simply tragic. But I will be back when I feel like it and will check all employees on their behavior next time. 💯

    Always been a huge fan-- still a great happy hour and tasty food, but the service has suffered the last few times I've been here, and if you're a woman alone on the patio, just forget it.

    There are better Mexican spots in Austin. The cost doesn't justify the taste. Not that special

    Try the Huevos Motuleños - Good flavor pairing - eggs could have been a little less cooked though.

    Great tacos! They keep their outside seating warm and covered. Waitress kinda rushed us out though.

    Chilaquiles were good but too spicy. Just a little over the top

    French toast is great but warning. They are the size of croutons. Order another side or share an entree. Otherwise this place is fabulous!!!
