"Did I get you, hon?" asked the hostess/server as she spilled a full margarita right by our table, with some of the contents landing on my wife's leg. Elegant service isn't what you'll find at Curra's, but what there is of it is relatively prompt, and the food is decent. But let's face it: When you smother a burrito or... More

My wife had been there the night before with friends of hers, and her experience was so good we decided to head back there for breakfast the following morning. I'm very, VERY glad she made that decision for us. The place is as unpretentious as a coffee shop, but its food is second-to-none. I had the larger Alliss Breakfast Plate,... More

It's hard to imagine going somewhere that's famous for avocado margaritas, since I'm not much of a fan of the vegetable or of Jimmy Buffett. But the frozen avocado margaritas served at Curra's are incredibly delicious and incredibly addictive. Since I was trying items that aren't part of my usual palate, I also feasted on a delicious plate of fish... More

I've been here for drinks and appetizers and thought it was great, but this visit I went for breakfast and it was really delicious! They have wonderful house special dishes that are really a must try. The parking can be really tricky- it's Austin so if the lot is full, it's hard to find a spot and you'll have to... More

I will go out of my way to eat here, as the menu is unique and it's a great value. Curra's is funky and not fancy. But the food is authentic and they have a plethora of margarita variations. Service can be spotty and it can get noisy during peak times. But i still love the place.

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!!
