Good food, ok atmosphere

I walked in by myself, a lonely traveler in Austin for the night. I sat at the bar which had a few men at it all seemed to be alone & getting a bite to eat. The place was packed, I had beef quesadillas which were very good. I was a little nervous to be there alone but I enjoyed... read more

I eat here on a monthly basis and have to say Amaya's has the best puffy taco plate, aka Village Tacos. This is a delicious and tasty meal at a very good price. The portions are plenty and the service is fast and friendly. The restaurant is always quite busy at lunchtime, during the week, which confirms the great quality... More

The fresh corn tortillas draw me back every time. It doesn't matter how they are served (ie, chips, tacos, on the side). Also I recommend the queso and the guacamole. It's all good! The staff is always pleasant and accommodating. I recommend this place to everyone.

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

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... 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.
