This place is a Mexican't. – So I saw this restaurant advertised on TV, and their great shrimp flautas, and had to know if it was good. So my boyfriend and I went, and was greeted by a less than enthused host staff. After we were seated, the waitress, who we will call R, finally came over to take our drink order, but just like the host staff, she had the enthusiasm of a Brit on the 4th of July. Food came, and the shrimp flautas were actually good, really greasy, but really good. My boyfriend's tamales were bland, and my beef flautas were edible to say the least. Well check time came, and our waitress, R, dropped off the ticket with an extra meal we never ordered added to the ticket. Thankfully for my boyfriend's cunning eye, he caught it, and he told her to take it off. So he and I split the ticket, and when it came to signing the credit slips I noticed that I had two different credit slips in my check folder. She had charged me for not only my meal, but another tables meal. I patiently waited to ask her about it, and she said she accidentally ran it, but voided it out. I asked her for the void slip, and she said there was no void slip. What got me, was that she didn't even bother to mention it to me, and I had to track her down myself to ask her about her error. So if you are looking for bland food, zombie like waiters/waitresses, and a host staff that are as exciting as a paper cup, then by all means visit the Texican. All I know is I wasted my hard earned money on my meal, and I guess someone else's.
so so food – the food here is just so so, nothing to brag about. Will not come again since there are tons of other Mexican food to try out. I know Mesa Rosa definetely tastes better than Texican Cafe.
Best New Mexico style mexican food in Austin – This place is an awesome place to eat, excellent mexican food period. Label it how you will, you owe it to yourself to try this place. Yeah, the atmosphere is pretty and really awesome and cool, but I mainly go to a restaurant for the food. Yes its a great place to take a date or the birfday boy or girl on your list, but go for an incredible dining experience. I have never felt compelled to write a review for a restaurant, but I want this place to prosper and stay in Austin. I grew up on authentic mexican food. My mom was from New Mexico so we had lots of dishes with green chilie and enchiladas and tamales with authentic chile colorado (red chile for you gringos). I wont tell her but their chile rellenos and sante fe enchiladas are just like momma used to make them and taste almost exactly the same. (The love she put into it aint available for sale to restaurants) So go check this place out, it'll put a smile on your face!
Yuck, tastes like windex – How on earth did this dump get so many stars? I don't know how I know what windex tastes like, but their food has to be the equivalent. The only time I haven't been able to eat Mexican food ever. Terrible!
Very Bad Customer Service from Waitress – My girlfriend and I over the last year went out to eat on average 3 times per week. We're usually pretty good with giving people the benefit of the doubt. When we experience bad service, or so-so food we will usually try them at least one more time, just to see if its the same.
Anyhow, as for the Texican Cafe we have eaten there 3 times over the last couple of months. The first time was great food, and great service. The second time our waitress took 15 minutes to come take our drink order. The food was nasty, and the waitress was horrible.
The third was the charm. Our server was rude and had a bad attitude. She came to our table 3 times only, 1 time for our drink order, 1 time for our food order, and the last time to bring us our check.
My girlfriend and I ordered the alcoholic beverage, except I asked for a frozen one, and she got hers on the rocks . . . . . . they charged us more money for the frozen drink!!!!!!!!!
Sorry, but I have to rate this place with a ZEROOOOO.
One of my favorites – On first blush, one may assume this is just another cheesy Tex-mex eatery, but I assure you this place is wonderful. Being from the Rio Grande Valley, I am a Tex-Mex snob, but this place does not disappoint. The exterior is mostly tacky, but the interior is eclectic and hip with elegant lighting, stained concrete, colorful art glass, funky art, and beautiful french windows. The service is always top notch from my experiences and the food has yet to be anything other than perfect. My new addiction is the shrimp flauta, which I have ordered even twice in one week. Never overdone, the shrimp is very tastey and their salsa is excellent. I would suggest ordering a cup of salsa to go for home use. This is one of the best places to eat Tex-Mex in Austin.
User review by cyclepoo – Excellent food--love the Chili Colorado--best I've had in years. The flour tortillas are home made and VERY good. A little more than I want to spend out on a regular basis but worth it for the quality.
Amazing Food, Fun Enviorment – This resturant is suprisingly upscale, but still with a comftorbale atmosphere. It is a great palse for TEX MEX food/ to meet with a group of friends. The food is AMAZING! i would recomend, the Fijitas. All around an amazing place.
Editorial Review – Serving El Paso style Tex-Mex cuisine; specialties include the cabrito fajitas enchilada, stuffed jalapenos and queso.
