Very Rude Management – I had to return my meal because I am allergic to onions. I explained it was my fault because I didn't ask. I could not get another meal because I had to get back to work. The manager said while holding my plate "What do you want me to do with this". I said I wasn't sure what he meant and he repeated this question with more attitude. I have never had any service person let alone a manager speak to me that way. DO NOT support them financially. This could not have been the first time this man has been rude to customers and I'm sure it won't be the last.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Aside from the intimate dining spaces broken up by bright red paneled walls and decorated with Mexican ceramics and ironworks, guests can also retreat to the bar or an outdoor patio. Everything is made fresh, including the soft, redolent tortillas. Carne con chile verde is pork stewed until tender with poblano and Anaheim chiles, tomatillos and onions. El Monterrey offers a sampling: grilled taco, cheese enchilada, a spicy chile relleno and lots of fresh guacamole.
crappy food.. overpriced, – overall very pooor ingredients and poor food... hate to say this as the restaurant is right in my neighborhood... not going back ever again!!!!
Great margaritas and enchilada plates – This is a good place to come after work when I am needing my mexican food fix. My favorite here is the chicken enchiladas (2) with tomatillo sauce and I always ask for the charro beans, which I think are the best I have had in Austin. For 7.99 in the evening in central Austin, that is a bargain, and I leave stuffed. I like their salsa, too. I have found that if a place has good salsa and good beans, everything else is pretty good in my experience. Lots of young couples, singles, families, oldsters, this place has them all - love the mix. Another big plus is that they don't try to blast you out of your chair with their music. It's just right. You can actually talk to your date without shouting. Sorry it took me so long to find this place.
Read the review online - and saw the high star rating. What a mistake. – My fiancee and I go onto Austin City Search to find great reco's for Friday night dinners or Saturday evening lunch. We were both in the mood for some good mexican food and ran across the recommendation saying Jorge's is in the top 3 places to eat mexican food in Austin. Well it wasn't today. We both were extremely disapointed with the food quality and quantity. Both of us got the Jorge Combo plate which had a little bit of everything - unfortunately none of it was impressive. Out of all the hundreds of mexican food restaurants I have eaten over the 32 years of being a Texan - this is definitely in the bottom 10%. Loved the atmosphere when i walked in, but the food quality was not good and the taste was very bland. Plus - very pricey for the small serving sizes of the plates.
Great Mexican Martinis! – I generally go on a Thursday for the discounted Mexican Martinis, which are great! The drinks are always good, the service is very quick, and the food is fresh and inexpensive. For a casual, cheap, relaxing meal - I definitely recommend Jorge's. So many Austin Mexican restaurants are hard to get into without a long wait and even then you feel like your server is juggling a million things at once - but this is never the case with Jorge's. I rarely have to wait to be seated, the food is very hot and fresh and well seasoned and the drinks are the best.
Yum! – I really like Jorges. The food is super yummy and decently priced. My favorite thing is the colorful decorations and overall atmosphere. It's a funplace to go! Their Margaritas are great and on Thursdays they have half price Mexican martinis. Nice bathrooms too....
WAAAYYY TO EXPENSIVE FOR THE QUALITY...I would rather have had Jack n the Box tacos @ 2 for $.99!!! – I read some of the other reviews prior, but decided to give it a try anyway - YES it's too expensive for the type & quality of the food; however I don't mind the price IF the food is good. I had the barbarcoa (?) tacos & could barely swallow the one bite! Now, I may have made a mistake with this choice, BUT I do expect a good waiter/place to notice a completely uneaten plate and make an inquiry (at the least)...the waiter ignored the uneaten dish & then commented that "it's un unusual meat, but his favorite!" - I paid the $8.00 for the small portion of refried beans & boring rice! My friend had the chicken fajita tacos and said they were "very good" - another friend had the beef tacos & I tasted them (they were "ok" at best - but too expensive for ground beef tacos! The pepsi was good...but I would rather have gone through the drive-thru at Jack n the Box for the 2 tacos for $.99!!!!!!!!!!!
But, despite the price & my really bad dish the place was packed!! - oh well I won't go back...sorry Jorge!
Talk about pricey!!! – Ok, native Austinite that grew up with the original. The new owners keep jacking up the prices. This is tex-mex people. 12.99 for a salad aint gonna fly. There is better, cheaper t-mex around the area. LOWER YOUR PRICES JORGES!
good mexican – Great fajitas. Great salsa. Service has always been good. Good prices for happy hours. Great bar. I wish they were open on Sundays.
