Solid Mexican Food

Really enjoyed the salsa tasting plate, which had 10 or more different salsas. Service was prompt and courteous. I had enchiladas (pastor) with refried pinto beans and rice that I really enjoyed. The Currita margaritas are good.

This place is a gem. Indeed, we all lamented not having a such a restaurant in our neighborhood! We had an amazing brunch. The black beans are incredible! The salsas delicious. If you are looking for a relaxed, welcoming place with great food, this is it!

I hadn't been to Austin for a few years and forgot how much I love this place. Or maybe it just got better. 8.95 bowl of tortilla soup full of vegetables, super-flavorful chicken, and great broth was sized like a larged Vietnamese pho but more delicious! Mole poblano enchiladas really excellent with complex sauce. Enchiladas Curras a little too cheesy... More

The avocado margherita is a must. The salsa served with chips, is perfectly balanced heat and flavor. The Oaxacan coffee has a great flavor profile.

We've been Curra's regulars for many years. We started out eating at their Burnet Road location and also visited the Parmer Lane location a couple of times. Both closed, so we started making the long (43 miles, one way) trip to the Oltorf location when the traffic on MoPac would allow it. We always enjoyed the food and atmosphere (the... More

My daughter wanted Mexican and I didn't want to have to drive too far from the hotel that night. This was close and well reviewed. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food was quite good! It's not fancy on the inside either, but it's clean and the staff was nice. Ultimately it's the food you care... More

We were told that this place has the best margaritas in Austin and the person recommending this place said she checked online confirming her opinion. The "original" margarita was very good but the blended avocado one was not. The chips and salsa were ok but the food very average to poor. The place looks sketchy going in and we will... More

It was good food for sure! They know how to do it here! I had some sort of shrimp enchiladas that were so tasty!! There was pineapple in them which created a very good flavor! Loved the food! They were pretty busy but we got a table outside. Service was not fabulous but acceptable.

I was misled by TripAdvisor reviewers who really liked this place & gave it high ratings. On a scale of 10, I'd give this place a 6.

Have been coming here for about 20 years now. Simply great Mexican food. Their vege tacos and of course the flan is out of this world! I can't say enough great things about this place. The owners are extremely friendly as well as all of the wait staff. If ever in Austin this place is a must!
