We've been here maybe 6 times in the past year. It has always been great -- really good local Tex-Mex with great service and a fun environment. We've never been disappointed by the food. Tonight I got the Texas Sampler, which is not on the menu. Wings, quesadillas, taquitos and more. Really good and having gotten it twice, I have... More

We ate at this restaurant as it was a fund raiser for a local high school sports team. I ordered the Texas Sampler ( which was not on the menu but did see it on line so I asked for it and it was available). It was a sampling of wings, taquitos, beef nachos, quesadillas and queso. It was a... More

Pleasantly surprised with our dinner. It was 9pm Tuesday. We were pleased to find a neighborhood restaurant open for a quick bite. The salsa and chips tasted really fresh. Our dinner came fairly fast. Steak salad was delicious and soft taco chicken dinner (shredded) was very flavorful. Plentiful serving and saved it for a take home meal. The server was... More

Have been there a number of times for dinner. I have to say my dinner partners love this place but I am ambivalent. The food is decent quality but I have had better Mexican.

I keep winding up at Austin Grill because girlfriends (ONLY girlfriends--never couples) invite me there, so I go. But I just don't see the charm. The food is only average. The wait staff--well, at night, they're pretty good, but in the daytime, not too knowledgeable. There is splashed food dried on the walls and the menus are dirty. Why my... More

So my experience at this restaurant/bar over the years has been somewhat to extremely mediocre. The food is overpriced given the quality and the lack of attentive service to match. Depending on the night, and who your server or bartender might be, it can be a decent enough experience, but trust me unless you're solely there to be watching a... More

Love the Texas sized margaritas and grilled wings. Great place to watch a football game at the bar or dine with friends/family and enjoy good Tex-Mex food. Great menu with something for everybody.

We've dropped into this local hot-spot before. To our delight this visit was on Thursday when they weekly have unlimited soft or fried tacos. What's more, every variety is included: fried or grilled fish, spicy beef, shrimp, avacado, chicken, carnitas. Every one of them was delicious! To start things off, they have awesome salsa and chips. For the kids there... More

The last time we were in this restaurant was 9/11/01. Too long ago, but lived in Springfield at the time. This visit was for dinner and had beef and bean burrito and 1/2 rack of ribs. Ribs came with house made fries and able to swap out slaw for grilled veggies (carrots, squash and zucchini) and also a mini pan... More

After avoiding Austin Grill after it was bought out by a corporation several years ago, I found myself with a group of eight colleagues eating dinner and marveling at the bounce back in food service and quality. Even though there were eight of us, our server managed drinks and eight separate orders with finesse. Everyone enjoyed her entree except for... More
