Austin >Texican Cafe Lakeline
This is a great place to go to after a long work week. Being able to have a margharita and chips and a great place to talk with friends is perfect! I love the fajitas. This is a great place for mexican food. I think the prices are appropriate for the food and also the service is great.
HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT. Went there last saturday with some friends from San Antonio,we bragged about this place to them so they agreed to drive up 2 hrs to meet us for dinner there. Service was HORRIBLE! Spoke with the management and told her my emberrassing experience. Gives us a gift card and tells us to please come back and DON'T WRITE ANYTHING NEGATIVE ONLINE! So, we give them a chance, order fajitas to go, family size which is a pound and a half. We ordered shrimp and fajitas. I get home, only to find only 4 strips of fajita, and about a pound of shrimp! So, I call, and speak to the manager, he tells me, "that didn't happen sir", I was like, "are you calling me a liar?", his reply, " well sir, that didn't happen, you can bring your plate back and show me!" WOW, I asked for a refund, and his name, he said for me to "call the corporate office". AND THEN HUNG UP ON ME! I called back, spoke to "another manger" and he told me to come back and he'd fix the problem. COME BACK? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I politely told him I was too angry to come back, and that I know my temper, and if I come back tonight, I would be ugly, and i don't want to stoop to his level. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND AGAIN.
Love the staff and the food!. My husband and I love this restaurant and I am surprised about the negative reviews I read about the service because we have yet to come across an unfriendly waiter or waitress. We bring family and friends in often and all of them have also loved the food, drinks and atmosphere! Their texican martini and margaritas are delicious and I every meal I've had has been good enough to take the leftovers home. Try it for yourself - you won't be disappointed!
not as good as the original......
What a difference! Food wasn't quite as good as the south Austin location- but the service was really disappointing. actually embarrassing as I had bragged about the place before we went.
I'm sure that the fact that the AC had just been repaired entered into the staffs attitude....but they all kept telling us about it. We came to eat and enjoy each other's company - not to provide a therapudic outlet for the staff.
Then they swiched waitpersons on us because someone from another station had requested our waiter. Had we known that the waitress that had to fill in for him would neglect us the rest of the evening we would have left then.
It wasn't busy...but still took an hour and forty-five minutes to complete the slow motion disaster. We suggest take out if you must. Oh, yeah.....they told us that the manager was too busy to come over and talk to us.
Great Margaritas!. I havent had the chance to experience the food at the Texican but the margaritas are fantastic! The staff was very friendly as well! Great place for a happy hour!
Fabulous. absolutly great. Don't understand the negative comments.
Bad beans, bad service..
The refried beans tasted a bit like dirty dish water and the jalapenos tasted stale-is that even possible? They totally ruined my nachos, but I was starving and short on time so I tried to get as much off as I could and eat them anyway. I deeply regretted that later...
The service was really bad, too. Our waiter said he had a bunch of parties, like that makes it ok?
One positive, my friend had the tortilla soup and she said it might just be the best tortilla soup she's ever had a restaurant.
The worst Tex-Mex. The food and service was horrible. Anytime I drive by this place it brings back bad memories.
Great Fajita's Great Mexican Martini's. I have been to this restaurant 8 times in the past 12 months and love it! I have only had one experience with a slow waiter. The steak fajita's are awesome, home made tortilla's, and fried ice cream are all delicious. Finally, the Mexican Martini's are delicious and you don't get cut off after 2 of them.
Good Service, Bad Food.
I read all the reviews but went to the resturant anyway. The service was very good. However the food was not. All the meat (chicken, shrimp) tasted like it was boiled.
Dont want to say anthing too bad, other then I think if they just fixed their food they will be a decent resturant.
