Our fall back restaurant

We end up eating here every trip when another option doesn't work out. Lol. I like the salsa but the margaritas are unexceptional. I tried the shrimp soup for the first time and will order it again.

Service was okay as well as atmosphere, nothing fancy or special. We were in the hurry when we came and shared order of Seafood Nachos. It was very delicious and will definitely order it again when I return. Little the expensive side for the area, but not horrible. If I'm in the mood of Mexican cuisine in the area, I... More

My husband had the beef fajitas which were enjoyable. I had the shrimp, chicken cheesy rice, can't remember the name but it was delicious. The salsa was kind of weird but ok. I had a margarita, which was OK, The waitress was pretty new and moderately attentive. This place was ok, but not great. Small place, kind of hard to... More

The service was horrible. And they had two more hours until they closed (one more by the time we left). There were three of us and at the same time we were all oUT of our drinks and waited to get them filled as the waiter talked to someone who also worked there for 5 minutes. It took about 30... More

We arrived at the restaurant a little late and there was a big wait for a table but they offered to let us sit at the bar. The food was wonderful but they were so busy it would take a little while for them to notice our drinks were getting low. Overall, good experience

We ate dinner here and we found it to be good but nothing to brag about. They do have a good selection on the menu. My wife drank a margarita and said that it was good. It is located one block from the Austin Hotel. The prices are reasonable. We might eat there again if we're staying in the Austin.

The salsa and cheese dip were really good;however, our dinners were about average. Nothing to write home to Mom about.

Service was bad, drinks were worse. They spilled basket of chips first round then drink next time. Forgot to bring us menu's to order. The pictures on the menu were terrible and would have been better just left off. Sorry just being honest..will not return.

Had lunch at Picante's Grill today. The food was excellent. It was fresh and well cooked. The salsa was unique, some of the best we have tasted. In a neat, old historical building. We will return.
