great experience

15 of us showed up last night, Wed, with no reservation, and we were cared for like old friends. Table was made ready quickly including super clean cloth napkins and silverware...a sign as to what is behind the kitchen door....clean.\r Our server Rodney had all our names down in 2 minutes and was terrific......like he was actually happy to be there. The Chili Rellenos were unique and yummy...no breading, no dee... view more

Worst Tex-Mex Food Ever

My husband took us out to eat at this place. First of all the service was terrible. It took forever for them to come to our table. When they finally took our order, we had to wait 45 minutes to get our plates. They screwed up one of the plates. The food was cold. We never went back.

HORRIBLE SERVICE

The food and the service was horrible. We went there for my brother's birthday dinner. The manager was rude the entire night. Our poor server had to wait on our party as well everyone they sat in the room we were in. The manager knew a big party was going to be there, but didn't staff our area very well. When the night was over we had questions regarding our bill and the manager was very put off by it. We got ch... view more

stuck in the bland 1950's

I'm amazed with the good reviews for this place. It has to be one of the worst Tex-Mex places in town. And it is not even cheap. In the 1950's , when Congress was the main road to San Antonio this must have been something. Nothing here is good. it starts with the chips which taste like they've been sitting out forever. the salsa has nothing going for it. It is the same for everything. Tex mex cuisine has made grea... view more

Good Old Tex-Mex

This is one of my favorite places for good old fashioned Tex-Mex and they make my favorite salsa. The food is hot and good. If you like good old fashioned TexMex, it's hard to beat this place.

Awesome Food...Fun Atmosphere!!!!

I had the dinner for my sister-in-laws bachelorette party at El Gallo, and it was an awesome experience!!! All the girls in our group were very impressed. We all had different items off of the menu, and they were all wonderful. They take reservations.....which was a plus since we had 12 ladies in our group. All of the other places I called would NOT take reservations. The service was great and we were entertaine... view more

THE BEST EVER!!!!

This restaurant has been our favorite for 20+ years!!! You can't go wrong with any of their menu choices. If your a hot sauce fanatic like me you will definitely not be disappointed. It's to DIE for!! All of their food items including tortillas and chips are hand made. The staff is very courteous and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The owners take pride in their establishment and it's like going to see family ... view more

A++ Cheese Enchiladas

As a native Texan, I have to comment on the person who said the cheese enchiladas are terrible. I'll bet that person is not from here. First, cheese enchiladas SHOULD be soft and creamy, not like a lump of melted cheddar. Melted cheese is a bit greasy and again, it should be. The combination of the gloriously soft and tasty cheese with the perfect chile con carne is the very, very best in town. The other food is... view more

Fish tacos to die for!

We absolutely adored the fish tacos here. We were brought here by a client who is a local in Austin and were surprised at how fresh and tasty everything was. the salsa was excellent as well, and there were many to choose from! The service was very friendly and typical Austin-like. Yum. I really wish we had access to fish tacos and salsa bars as good as this in Florida!
