Not the best Mexican food nor dining experience..

My family recently went to the Circle C location for the first time and had an absolutly terrible dining experience. We were seated in the patio area next to a very large and drunk party of about 20 people. They were extremely loud and disruptive for all dining in that area. When we brought it up to our waiter he indicted he had been serving them for over 3 hours and they had a lot to drink ..that was obvious. Our... view more

Best Tex-Mex in Austin!

My husband and I have been to Santa Rita several times and we absolutely love it! We will not go anywhere else if we are looking for Tex-Mex. The wait staff is very friendly and prompt. We have had several dishes and they are all amazing. I highly recommend going here when you are in the mood for Mexican food. I promise you won't be disappointed!

This is it!! Best Tex Mex in Austin

My family and I have been to the Circle C location now 3 times since they opened and it is by far the best Tex Mex in Austin. The food, the margaritas, the ambience...it's all fabulous! The wait staff is knowledgable and accomodating (We had Zeb and he was great!). The appetizers and desserts are yummy too!! The beef fajitas are cooked to perfection, the enchiladas are the perfect blend of sauce and cheese and the ... view more

Refused to take my to-go order

Santa Rita recently opened in the Circle-C area and my wife and I were very excited. However, tonight (August 21) we attempted to place a to-go order and did not have much luck. The ""General Manager"" informed me that they were ""too busy"" to take our to-go order and would not do so. If they did not offer this service it would be on thing, but it is more than frustrating when a place offers a service and then does ... view more

Mediocre food. Cute Place

I dropped by for lunch and was not pleased with the food. I ordered the Santa Rita Shrimp Salad with both the Jalapeno Ranch and the Cilantro Vinaigrette. (I wanted to try a little of both) The six small shrimp on top of the salad were chewy and over done, but had a nice spice to them. I also enjoyed the large helping of avocado. Both of the dressings were a disappointment due to the fact the ranch tasted nothing... view more

response to october 2008 review

I am a waiter at santa rita cantina, and I was actually there the night that the customer that wrote the review had dinner. The reason I can remember this is because she was so rude. She was the talk of the staff the rest of the night......Now the truth. This customer did in fact order the chicken and when it came out it was not perfect, so her waiter had it sent back and had it replaced with a brand new dish. Af... view more

Ridiculously rude and offensive manager yelled to make me eat burnt food in addition to paying for i

I always loved this place and ordered rotisserie chicken every time I ate there. Recently, when I ate there again and ordered rotisserie chicken, the chicken was so burnt the skin was entirely black. I asked for another piece of chicken. The waitress took the food and came back with a plate and said it was the ""best chicken"" they could find. I opened my plate only to see the SAME piece of chicken with the skin scra... view more

Bad service

I have been a couple of times but I am not sure that I will ever go back. I was in there this past week and this is the second time that this has happened over there. First off we were in around 2:00 and there was no one at the front door to greet us. We stood there for about 15 minutes and we looked around the corner at the bar and the bartender was just talking away to what look to be an employee who was off the... view more

Pretty good Tex-Mex, nice clean atmosphere, decent service.

I've been a number of times for lunch and tried several different things on the menu. The lunch specials are well worth it, in fact a bargin. The food is always good altho not the top of the class. The service is good as well. I wouldn't hesitate to take anyone there for some good Tex-Mex and a drink. The atmosphere is well lit and colorful and i always feel comfortable. Not a darn thing wrong with this place or the ... view more

Well half way into my meal i had a bone in it!!! Not just a small bone, but a fairly big one....yeah gross. My girlfriend saw this and stopped eating that very sec. She was so hungry she was eating beans!!! She doesnt eat beans......that can tell you something, ... view more
