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

Whenever my family wants good Tex-Mex food, we go here. Interior not fancy, but the service is quick and the food is consistently good and served hot. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone going there to try a VILLAGE TACO -great tasting taco made with their corn tortilla. The corn tortillas here are thick and have a great corn flavor with... More

The hotel we were staying at recommended Amaya's to us. We ate their on 2 different occasions and had 2 different experiences, the food both times was fantastic, however the service the 2nd time was definitely not as good as the first. We had the same waiter both times, so it must have been an off night. I would recommend... 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...
