I know, hard to believe but both dishes were too cheesy. Had to fish around to find the chicken. Chips were fresh, hot and plentiful. Staff was friendly w reasonable prices.

Delicious food but service a bit slow. Ordered the Mexican lunch plate and it was cheesy goodness! It took quite a while to get seated even though there were many tables. The staff was racing around trying to serve too many tables. The wait was...More

We've been visiting the Texican ever since we moved to the Manchaca-Buda area in 1990. Our kids grew up eating here often, and we all still love it! They have the best fajitas, and we especially like the nachos supreme. Overall, the food is excellent,...More

The Texican Cafe, an Austin original, began serving hungry Austinites in South Austin in 1988. Then and now, our food philosophy remains the same- use only the finest and freshest beef, poultry, seafood, and produce to ensure the delivery of palate pleasing offerings of the highest quality. Our chili peppers and spices are native to the cities of Juarez and El Paso and give our food a unique flavorful flair that Austinites have been enjoying for over 25 years. These traditional ingredients paired with New Mexican Native American ingredients made for the perfect blend of Mexican food created for Texans, thus the birth of the “Texican Cafe”.
