This restaurant is closed. A new one has taken its place. We have not visited the new one, but we did not care for Jorge's when it was open.

Jorge's has closed this location, and a new Mexican restaurant is in the works. I passed the place last week and saw the construction, but passed by again today just to make sure I had the right place. I did. I only ate at the location once, and it was OK. But there are too many other places that serve... More

But wait don't despair we were told that hope to reopen at another location around March of 2013. We put our e-mail list and hope... More

Jorge's is a classic in the North Austin area, but is closing this month to re-locate on Burnet Rd. They should re-open in February with the same staff, but in a larger more modern space. We will be there for the opening to sample some of the fine frozen margaritas.

I remember Jorge's at this location for 25 years, but had never eaten there until last week. The parking lot was full, there was a big crowd with many families, and a 30-minute wait, so we thought the food must be good. We were surprised by the opposite. I ordered a taco and quesadilla. There was a generous amount of... More

Last weekend, we went to Austin and wanted real TEX-MEX food. The fish taco's were just really flavorful, filling, with just the right amount of spice. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

We had dinner at Jorge's this evening and I have to say it is some of the best Mexican food I have eaten and my waist is thick with the stuff! It is a huge restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. The parking lot was packed and so was the onstreet parking near Jorge's. Obvously, my opinion is shared by... More

Jorge's is a great place for great food and drinks! They have an outside sitting area, as well. You can get your typical dishes, but then they have their specialties that are out of this world (the Tampico is my favorite). It's not crazy expensive, and it doesn't take long to feel like family. Gilbert, the manager is a great... More
