Cleaned My Plate!

Don't know if I was just that hungry or if the food was just that good! I had the Mexican Plate #6 on the menu. It had been quite a while since I last ate here and of course I was not disappointed. So when I say I cleaned my plate I literally cleaned my plate. The food was good... read more

They opened their first location almost 40 yrs ago in NE Austin (in shopping center behind Harris Elementary). That north side loctn has moved twice since and grown each time. David (or Mr Amaya) would welcome patrons at the door and thank them for coming with genuine intent when they left. Family love and care of consistent recipe quality has... More

If you like Mexican food that is not outrageously expensive, this is the place to go. Not only good food but great atmosphere as well.

What would draw someone here? We went after some (poor) research and nobody likes the food. Tacos with no flavor, and frankly, no redeeming qualities. Why there was a wait is puzzling. Never again.

I would think that by now there would have been an improvement in the way they do business. The place is always busy, wait time is ridiculously long and the food is almost dry and tasteless. Though the salsa and taco was good, the chairs are too small and very uncomfortable.

Located right off IH 35 South close to exit 238, this place is grungy and the food is so below average that its hard to believe they maintain a clientele. Had #24 (2) beef tacos with bens and rice. Bit into what I think was a bone chip. The rice and refried beans were tasteless and the meat was just... More

If I were describe Amaya's food in three words, it would be: cheap, bland and salty. Not that it's cheap to buy, it just tastes cheap. The salsa tasted like it was made "in New York City", the handmade tortillas they're so proud of were thick and gummy, and everything else is it's most generic Tex-Mex equivalent. My husband and...

I've been eating at Amaya's since the mid 80's when they were located on East 7th street. For a real treat try their enchiladas with a couple of over easy eggs on top.

I was there with over 35 attorneys. The staff handled our large group easily and were very courteous. The food was typical Tex-Mex but tasty. The taco was better than many restaurants. I had tghe basic tamale, enchilada, rice, bean & taco plate - approx. $10. Their frozen margaritas were tasty. If I wanted decent Tex-Mex I would go there... More

If you are looking for a change of pace for breakfast eat here if in Austin. Not you're typical I-Hop or Denny's. You do need to like spicy though because it is a Mexican food restaurant. It was busy yet was seated quickly and drink ordered taken and served. Had one primary waitstaff but everyone helped each other out so... More
