We go out to this restaurant every time we visit Austin. I love their hot salsa. It is infused with flavor. You must order their cheese enchiladas, tableside guacemole, fajitas and (if you need less calories) salmon. This is the perfect restaurant for a big...More

I stopped in here early one evening. I got a very mediocre salad with a total of four (4) very nicely done shrimp for 16 dollars. Place was empty but the service was, at best, inattentive, and even a little snooty at the edges. It's...More
