The boss was picking up the tab today so I didn't have a strong say to where we were going to have lunch. One colleague suggested Curro's. I don't why I ordered carne guisada which I had on Monday when I really should have ordered the blackened fish tacos. The carne guisada was very good along with the Spanish rice.... More

Have eaten here several times, and the food does not disappoint. The environment, however is lacking. If you go to the right you will be in a very noisy room and you cannot hear your dining partner, so stay to the right. The menu is varied and interesting, but it is looking very dated and there are no prices on... More

We tried Curra's on a whim after searching options for Mexican food & margaritas online. We were very pleasantly surprised. It's not a fancy place (looks like a converted former convenience store or laundromat), but don't let that throw you off. The staff was friendly. When I asked which margarita she recommended, she immediately perked up with "I love it... More

We adore this place. Austin has many wonderful Tex-Mex restaurants so to say this sits at the top of the heap is something! We love their breakfast tacos and eat them weekly. They have many fillings to choose from-including veggie chorizo! You just can't go wrong with a visit to Curra's!!

Love this place, so sorry they closed other locations. Great Tex-Mex, fantastic assortment of sauces (best mole in town!), terrific prices, great staff. A can't-miss!

We have been going to Curra's since the opened after Guerro's moved to SoCo. It is always good and the prices do not seem to have undergone the huge inflation of some other favorites. What do I like from Curra's? The Caldo is wonderful and served in a huge bowl. The Chiliquiles are great. The Carnitas is very traditional -... More

We came into town for the weekend and wanted something special, something "Austin". Friends recommended Curra's. In short, great atmosphere (we loved the fact that it is next to a gas station!) and great food! Drinks were pretty tasty as well! But I must say, our server was just not interested in us at all. Slow service, forgotten drinks, could... More

I live in Austin, and this is one of the main restaurants that my friends and I always come back to. Anytime we have visitors in town, we take them the Curras. The food is great. I've honestly never had something that I didn't like. My favorites are the Cancun Tacos, the Tamales, or the Caldo. Get the refried black... More

Had not been here for a dozen years, and did not remember it well, but once I ate lunch here, I came back twice more in as many days. Spectacular food! The chilaquiles were the perfect food for the morning after, the pork tacos al pastor were delightful, light and complex. Refried beans so creamy and soothing, nice chips and... More

This was one of my favorites. Was excited to get to go. When we walked in the place was dirty. The floors looked old, needing cleaning. The seating is almost worn out. If the food had been great it would not be an issue. I had vegetarian tacos, tasted old. My refried beans were good. My wife had enchiladas. She... More
