I have had a few of the menus items and been pleased. Their carnitas with homemade red tortillas however are amazing. Drinks are well made but too sweet at times for me. Last time we were there the server brought us all an extra shot when we asked for a little less sweetness :). Well done service!
The service is great, friendly, and attentive. The food fresh & delish. I eat there every Austin trip I take and tell everyone that's going to Austin. So far every person I've turned on to this delight (approx. 20 thus far) has shared my enthusiasm.
They have the best sauce, it is the creamy pecan sauce. It is on the menu as something else, you have to ask for it on the enchiladas as it's not listed as an option. I like it on the mole enchiladas. Devine.
"Curra's is a tiny little Mexican food restaurant that is always packed but never over crowded. They have an award winning vegetarian enchilada plate that is heavenly. My favorite thing to eat there can not be found at any of the neighboring Mexican restaurants. Try the sweet Tamalies. The cool thing about ordering Tamalies from Curra's is that you can mix an match. I also love the chicken ones!"
CURRAS GRILL IS ONE THE MY FAVORITE PLACES FOR GREAT MEXICAN FOOD, I ALSO AM A FAN OF THEIR DELICIOUS AVACADO MARGARITAS THEY ARE SUPER YUMMY, AND REFRESHING, I USUALY HAVE ENCHILADAS , OR TRY A NEW APPETIZER, THE CEVICHE WAS A LITTLE DRY AND COULD OF USED MORE LIME, BUT OTHER THAN THAT I LOVE THIS PLACE!!
I haven't been to Curra's in years even though I had always liked it before. I decided to take a new friend there for dinner tonight and it was just as good as I remembered.
I ordered the Salmon with Nopalitos in a cream sauce and it was super delicious! The salsa had a really nice homemade flavor too. The waiter was really great! We stayed there chatting and eating for almost 3 hours and he always made sure our waters were full. He didn't bring our check until we asked for it ...view moreso he allowed us to take as long as we wanted without feeling rushed.
They have a really large dining area inside but they also have a small outdoor patio if you want to eat outside.view less
This restaurant is not much to look at and even the menus seem about 20 years old but the food is just really good. A lunch special of pork flautas was crispy and full of flavor. A pork dish wrapped in banana leaf was so tender and flavorful served with amazing plantains. Lamb empenadas were crispy with a nice filling. Great Salsa. Great churas which are pinto beans with bacon. Great meal overall and terrific value
I used to be a south Austin Curra's regular. I loved the food. The service wasn't always great, but that was ok.... until one night. My boyfriend and I were hungry, and went to Curra's. To make a long story short, a waiter seated us after we were ignored for a long time waiting to sit. Then, the manager bitched him out right in front of us for him having sat us. He calmly apologized to her, stating why it seemed ok for him to sit us there. (She had totally ignored us up until that poin...view moret) We were quite embarrassed, and so was our waiter. We asked him if that was his manager, and we told him we were so sorry that he had to work for someone like that. He told us that not only was she the manager, but she was also the owner. \r I do not want to support a business that mistreats their employees, especially in such an embarrassing, unprofessional way. There was no need for the owner to yell at our waiter at all, except perhaps for some sense of control or power. \r I now don't go to Curra's. I miss the food from time to time, but I do not want to give that woman any of my money.view less
