I've been coming to Trudy's for years, normally for a special occasion because they have the famous Mexican Martini, and a free one on your birthday. The parking here fills up fast but if you're coming at dinner a lot of the other businesses in the lot are closed, which opens up some spots. Just be ready to park on the other side of the lot and walk a little bit. The building itself is pretty cool- it has a lounge feel, the upstairs bar is good for small groups. The outside patio still has pretty good climate control. The booths are huge! It gets pretty loud inside, and you can expect a pretty long wait for dinner Thursday- Saturday. The atmosphere is fun- perfect for parties or group dinners. I like this location better than the one near campus because you don't have quite so many drunk college students. I pretty much stick to the same order every time- Stuffed Avacado with suiza sauce, refried black beans and rice. This entree is soooo good. I'm always a little surprised at how spicy the sauce is (not to mention the complementary salsa), but nothing a Dr Pepper can't handle. I just recently tried the weekend brunch and was pleasantly surprised. I normally don't like buffets at all. The salad bar is small but stocked with good stuff, and the homemade chipotle ranch is divine. The fruit was fresh and sweet. There's queso and tortilla soup available. On the hot buffet line, I tried a little bit of everything, but since I was there later, I didn't try as many of the breakfast items- there's migas, hashbrowns, and other breakfasty items. I reallly liked the mushroom enchiladas, mini stuffed poblano peppers and mini stuffed avacados. Then there's little dessert items, including flan, tres leches, cobbler, and cookie squares. I tried the cookie squares because I was really full after everything else. The buffet was 11.95, including a drink. I normally get the stuffed avacado which is 11 alone, plus a drink. So I'd say that the buffet is a pretty awesome value for what you get.

I am at BAby A's just about every Friday. The margaritas have got to be the best in the state. They are so good and pack a mean kick The purple is great but it will knock you out. The baby changa is my favorite as far as food goes. I would recommend it with cheese sauce instead of the avacado sa…

So I stopped by Freebirds after hearing the radio commercials over and over and over... The atmosphere was so bland I don't really remember much about the place. I went in for a ""to go"" order for a friend and myself. By the time I had added some guacamole and sour cream it was over $15 for 2 b…
I first came across TacoDeli while I was in Massage School, it was right down the street. I am from NM and saw that they offered Chicken Adobada tacos and was curious if it would taste anything like the NM version and I am soo glad I tried it. It is so delicious and has a good amount of spice wi…
Wonderful evening spent with my wife. I enjoyed the small quaint atmosphere, service with a smile. Drinks and dinner were great, we will be returning and spreading the word.

I have been coming to the Duval and 183 location twice a week for over six years. The wait staff here is exceptional. They are always polite and have your refill before you notice that you need one! I love this Chuys and refuse to go to the other locations. Just wanted to give credit to waiters …
I've eaten at this restaurant many times - they have the best fresh tortillas anywhere. I've always had great service. The food is very good and the drinks are even better. Love it!!!
My wife and I have been customers for several years. The quality of the food is consistently good. The carne guisada , fajitas and chicken enchiladas (green) are exceptional. The prices are very reasonable and the quantities are huge. The service is always great and the waitpersons are alway…

I've heard about this place for months and my husband and I finally decided to hear what all the talk was about.... We pulled up to a packed parking lot and quickly learned that we weren't the only ones interested in Verde's. When you walk in, you're greeted by friendly faces and a warm ambiance. I first met Nick, the friendliest, most accommodating bartender we've ever met. He went above and beyond to satisfy our needs (we were on an hour wait, but he was right on top of things and made sure we were taken care of). Nick invited us to try one of 6 homemade infused tequilas. I tried the strawberry and raspberry combination, while my husband tried their homemade sangria...both were amazing (we can't wait to try more)!! While we were waiting, another staff member (Brandy) invited us to check out the patio. Wow!! A lounge area, and dining area (all covered), accompanied by a huge lawn where children of all ages can run free! They have soccer balls, frisbees, footballs, etc. for everyone to enjoy! We ordered the Chipotle Glazed Pork Chop and the Pollo Palomino....again, WOW! The seasoning was perfect! For ONE restaurant to have the WHOLE package is heaven to us!! We've been waiting for a place like this and folks...it's HERE!!! With a lot of restaurants you have good food, but not so good service, or a not so good atmosphere...but, they've got it all!! Well done Verde's and THANK YOU!!! We'll definitely be back! Mr. and Mrs. Sminsky Austin, TX
I just ate at the location on rundberg and i was skeptical on the fact that it used to be the infamous Pollo Regio. But in my opinion, Pollo Rico blows me away. The chicken is by far the greatest thing i have ever eatan, and if i may also say that it is better than the Pollo Regio before it. The chicken with the sauces, green one especially, are absolutely mouth watering. This new and improved taste got me thinking if there were still pollo regios in austin. I found one off of Ohlen and decided to compare it. Yes i am a serious critique and find it a great passtime. Anyways, i bought a chicken from Regio and another from Rico, and decided hands down that Pollo Rico has the better chicken. The great taste of their juicy chicken covered in a certain sause, which is called "Achote," i believe, is great. Upon further inspection i have figured out that the chicken is absolutely grease-free. Despite the fact what others may say, the "grease looking color" on the packaging is simply the "Achote" along with juiciness of the chicken itself. Not only is this food great tasting, it isnt half-bad for you either.
I visited Manuel's on Jollyville for ths first time this past weekend with some friends. They assured me that it was one of the best Mexican food restaurants in Austin. I can't say that I was disappointed. We had to wait about 30 minutes for a table as it was quite busy on this SAturday night. We kept ourselves busy with cocktails and chips at the bar. Our top shelf Margaritas were excellent without being too sweet and a Mojito was ordered that was excellent. Once we sat down, the waiter was pleasant and attentive. We quickly ordered some guacamole which was fresh and delicious. I ordered the chicken fajitas and my friends ordered chicken mole and a salad. The fajitas were really good, but I think the mole was the highlight. It was rich and spicy without being too heavy. I highly recommend this place, just expect to wait on a weekend night. Enjoy
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 so 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.
Wow! I thought I might be the first person to review this place, but I'm so pleasantly surprised to see how many other people enjoy Aranda's. I was introduced to the place by an ex about 9 years ago and love it! When I'm in the mood to fill up on tasty cheap food in a sit-down restaurant, this is one of my choices. You can get a torta or gigantor burrito for around $3 with unlimited chips and homemade salsa. I love going there with a friend and paying around $8-$9 for lunch, tax, and tip for TWO. Now, for that much money, you can't use words like ambiance, vibe, cuisine, etc., but you can use words like cheap, fast, and good.
After reading the one bad review I was not certain what to think, but decided to see for myself. We were a party of four, they were busy and took a call ahead for the seating list. We arrived and were seated right away by the fireplace. The service we received was outstanding, friendly and very knowledgable about the menu. Two of us had the Pollo Palomino and two had the porkchop. Both were OUTSTANDING! The guys had the porkchops and both stated it was the best they had ever eaten anywhere. Us girls felt the chicken was equally good. The atmosphere was also very pleasant. You don't want to skip over this one!!!
Was at the hotel next door for a board meeting. There were about 6 of us who arrived the evening before so we went together to Pappcitas. The place was really busy but our wait was fairly short. The staff were great, the menu had lots of choices & our waitress was great telling us details when we asked questions. The "Adult Beverages" were made by an experienced bartender. When we got our food it was very good and obviously not been left sitting, the meats were still sizzling. We agreed we would go back when we go to our next meeting.
I've been there twice the food was pretty good yesterday I went with a bunch of girlfriends we had happy hour margaritas the first margarita was awful so so I pick top. Shelf tequila el patron it was really good but it was $10 and was really small. So much for happy hour prices I didn't mind the $10 margarita but it sure was small I will continue to go there because I think its a nice restaurant and the food is great but I won't be ordering margaritas the waiting staff was excellent . The atmosphere was wonderful also. Thanks for reading
I believe Chuy's is owned by the same restaurant group that runs Hula Hut, Romeo's and other restaurants around Austin. I rarely go there, because they're always packed and I don't like waiting to eat. However, if it wasn't so hard to get in on the weekends, I would definitely go there more often. Their chips and salsa are solid and I love their Chicken Tortilla Soup. I can't remember many of the other dishes I used to eat, but I definitely remembering liking everything I've ever ordered there.
