    Order the crispy tacos as sopapillas. It's life changing! And you can replace rice & beans with any side, grilled zucchini is the best!

    I'm guessing like many sub-par Tex Mex places in Austin, people like the margaritas enough to enjoy the food. I don't like margaritas... And definitely wasn't impressed by the food.

    The downstairs patio and bar area are the best since there are so many TV's, and the full menu is served down here as well.

    Prepare yourself. Sitting at the bar can make you feel hated. The bartenders are more often than not, completely discourteous. Mexi marts are good though.

    This is hands down my favorite and consistent Tex-Mex in town! Every dish has great portion size and keep the martinis coming (they only limit 2 per visit and it's a good reason) .

    Authentic TexMex that lives up to the hype as an Austin institution. Was with a friend who is a foodie and he raved about it. I'm less sophisticated but had the best chicken mole burritto ever!

    Cocktails are surprisingly awesome; even the pickiest of craft cocktail connoisseurs will admit it. Mexican and Cuban martinis are high-octane stars. Daily drink specials keep it affordable.
