Best Drunk in Austin

$20 pitchers of Everclear-based margaritas? Can I get a hell yes? Totally worth the 20-minute wait. The parking lot gets crowded, but that's a good sign, to me.

Food OK, but charging me for chips when you bring them

Wow a Mexican restaurant in Texas chargign for chips and salsa that the bus boy brings. Not a good thing. and that is why I probably wont be back. Call me picky. The food was good.I ordered the Migas ( ehh) but the sides that came with it were MUCH better. Can I have an order of beans and potatoes?? I only went in becauase every place around them was crowded adn I was starving.

Just Drive Past this Establishment......

We had never been to the restaurant before, but decided to dine here. It took a few minutes to realize that this was not a place that I would come back to. The menu items make no sense other than let's charge more and serve less. I looked over the menu for over 15 minutes and still could not make up my mind. I decided to try the fajita enchiladas and boy was I disappointed. The food had no taste. I have tasted ... view more

I truly do not understand why this place is as popular

The place is dilapidated. Their service is the worst that I have ever experienced in a restaurant. The chips and salsa are watery. I only tried this place because my girlfriend insisted how great it was, but I would never eat here again…. So many better options for in Austin for this style food try – Vivo, Gueros, Baby A’s Anything but this place!

Got sick after eating at Polvos

Both my wife and I got sick after eating there. Several years ago we were regulars and enjoyed their food, but after hugging the toilet today we won't be returning.

Yummy roasted red pepper salsa

Read several reviews about the poor service, and couldn't disagree more. In a town where I've come to count on crappy to nonexistent service (yeah, pretty much everywhere), I feel pretty well cared for here. Water and Margarita refills were regular, more chips were offered, and meals showed fairly promptly considering how busy it was. One of the few places I've been where the appetizer showed up as an appetizer as... view more

not what it used to be :-{

i have been a patron of polvo's since they opened but it seems they have compromised their quality with all the influx of business they have enjoyed. not horrible, not great, i still go occasionally for the dive atmosphere but have discovered sago and it's really amazing.

If i could give it zero stars I would!

My boyfriend and i went to polvos for lunch today. We sat outside, took about 5 minutes to get two half empty glasses of water. Waited another 15 minutes, still no service we left. What made it worse was the we watched 3 waiters talk to each other and stand around the WHOLE time we were sitting. I called, they told me the manager was busy, to call back. I called back a waiter named Jackson got on the phone and told m... view more

HORRIBLE service. On top of it all, my debit card was charged more than once, for over $200. I am STILL trying to get this resolved. All employees of Polvo's have been extremely rude, unhelpful, and have lied multiple times about managers being present. I was told, ""Its not our problem, call your bank"". I will NEVER be back!!
