A friend suggested Amaya's - I went there - it did not look so inviting on the way in but the food was great - sat at the bar and the bartender took care of me. His recommendations were spot on. He suggested the happy hour beer and his recommendation for a margarita was a great finish to the evening.... More

I have had, and made for that matter, better breakfast tacos (food). my boyfriend will eat bland food, but did not finish his breakfast platter w/ Chorizo. my Tacos were... More

I remember several years ago at the old location waiting in line for almost an hour to get a table. Now that they are in their "new" location there is plenty of room, no waiting for a table. The food is great! The chicken enchiladas with green sauce are excellent. Real pulled chicken inside! The chips and salsa are complimentary.... More

The coffee is good and the service is always friendly and efficient. We do occasionally go their for lunch.If you are a carnivore with a big appetite the rib... More

Since Amaya's moved to it's current location they have really upped their game! Fantastic salsa....at times it can be HOT. Wish they would put it in bigger bowls but oh well. I love the breakfast tacos along with their fried tacos....beef is best! Margaritas are a tad pricey, but they are very good and they have a ton of flavors.... More

Simply put, these are the best tacos I have ever had. Think "crunch-chewy". The place is very casual and family friendly.

Quick and efficient lunch time service combined with flavoursome food in a packed restaurant is not always a given. Amaya's exceeded my expectations on all fronts. Highly recommended

After travelling all day via plane and car to get to Austin, we checked into our hotel and asked for a dinner recommendation at the front desk. The gentleman recommended Amaya's, where he had just eaten himself. We could walk there from our hotel. It was a Saturday night. They had a live band playing inside. The weather was great... More

Service was nonchalant. Drinks were generous. Food came out quick and was decent. Not a destination but if you are hungry, you could do a lot worse

If there is any tex me place in Texas one should visit it is this place. Packed for lunch, in other words, get there early. Food is fantastic especially the tacos. Not hard and not soft, right inn between. Simple and really really good. Easy to over eat there.
