The location is excellent therefore gets lots of business and I guess because of that they think their good. Very ordinary food, lackluster service and so loud you cant possibly talk with your guests. Nice they had a live band outside which helped get them...More

A couple of people recommend we come here when visiting the South Congress area. Very pretty with inside and outside seating. Food really is just average as are the drinks. It did not help that we had a very bored waiter (it was semi busy)...More

Stopped by for take-out on the last night in town. Ordered one thing, got something else instead. Half the order was what I wanted, but the whole meal was still delicious!

We enjoyed drinks and food here. They had good good and the mole was incredible! Their ground beef includes carrots and potatoes which was unique but grew on me as I enjoyed my enchiladas. Salsa was fairly spicy but not over the top hot.

We had eaten here twice before in 1998 and 2004. We were staying in Austin and hoped it was still in business. We were not disappointed and happy to see that the food was just as delicious and the ambience the same. Queso is top...More
