Authentic Mexican Food!!!!! The REAL Deal. – This restaurant has some of the BEST authentic Mexican food in town! Flavorful food with a good balance of traditional Mexican seasonings & other ingredients that make this place stand out above the rest.
Their beef taco?s are superb! Made with HOMEMADE corn tortillas (not store bought). Fresh salsa made with cilantro. Good use of peppers. Being a Native Texan, I am use to the salsa with chips, but a friend from out-of-town felt that the peppers made a strong statement (in his opinion it was an aggressive use of peppers) and advised that the salsa be kept out of the reach of children. It took two beers to put out the flames he encountered. My only complaints are that breakfast & noon lunch are often crowded & the surroundings can be a bit cramped. Other than that, I highly recommend this place.
Awesome Mexican food – This is hands down the best Mexican food I've had. They use fresh homemade tortillas. That alone stands them above the rest. Their carnitas is awe-inspiring. Get a carnitas taco and be sent to another world. I couldn't help but to close my eyes and focus on the marvelous sensations going about my mouth. The salsa is great. I also recommend the Manchacas for breakfast(sp?). It's dried beef strips stirred into eggs with potatoes and beans and rice. It is so good!! They give a few of those fabulous tortillas. After eating here, I honestly don't know why every Mexican place doesn't make fresh tortillas. It really stands out.
SO YUMMY!!! – WE love Mexican and coming from CA. this is as close as we have found to CA. style yet, in Austin!!!
SALSA IS DELISH, I ate at least 4 bowls, so good~~~
The best tacos in town! – Angie's is fabulous. Their tacos are the best in town with homemade corn tortillas that are cooked perfectly and natural while so many other restaurants use store bought hard shells. And, the taco meat is moist and flavorfull. Not to mention, that their cheese enchiladas rival the best in town. Don't forget to order the queso flameado with the corn tortillas. You may walk out of the restaurant feeling like your going to have a cardiac arrest, but it was totally worth it!
Perched on a hill just east of downtown, this is close to the pinnacle of good, down-home Tex-Mex cooking. – In Short
Due to its location, it caters predominantly to a noontime crowd and there's usually a short wait. Dining is casual in the three small rooms which display murals of the capitol area on the walls and constellations on the ceilings. Picnic tables are available outside. Specialties include carnitas and caldos, in addition to classic dishes featuring Angie's delicious made-from-scratch corn tortillas.
Best? Maybe. – This may be the best Tex-Mex in Austin. And that's saying a lot in this town. This is my second favorite Tex-Mex place in Austin, Polvo's is my favorite. I agree that the homemade taco shells, tostadas, tortillas and other ingredients are what make this place so good. I think they could use better chips with the salsa, but that is being really picky. The salsa is outstanding. Lunch is crowded, dinner is a better time to get a table quickly.
Best Mexican food in Town – I highly recommend this place, it is the best mexican food ever. Being from El Paso it was hard to find a restaurant with the same authenticity as El Paso's mexican food, well this comes pretty darn close. It is a must that you try the Carnitas Taco Plate and the Cheese Enchiladas, they are to die for. The salsa is the best ever- HOT AND SPICY. This place is simply a must try for Austinites and out of towners.
The real Tex-Mex heaven – Best enchiladas in town. The tortillas are homemade and everything is served piping hot. Service is friendly and the prices are unbeatable.
Good Price, Great Food – The plates are priced very well considering that the food is one of the best mexican food eateries in Austin. The beer is served in buckets, the salsa is hot, and the food is made to order; when you order tacos they do not serve the premade taco shells, they fry each tortilla before serving giving it a homemade ethnic taste. The restaurant is in an old house and gives you a close family feeling. Be careful because the hours are strange. Call before you go. Excellent!
