A local Austonian recommended Takoba to me and described it as one of the most underrated restaurants in the city. I must agree! It was delicious! It should be on everyone's list! The service was prompt, the prices were reasonable, and the food was delicious!...More

There's way better Mexican food in Austin. If you're already on the east side, check out tamale house instead of Takoba. The service was the worst I've had in quite a while....

I love this place because of the amazing Micheladas and authentic food. However, service is hit or miss. For example, today we had Kasandra. She was unfriendly and would just start grabbing plates with food still on them, then drinks we were done with without...More
