“Great choice on the riverwalk - get the guacamole!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Yes, you'll have to pay riverwalk prices, but it might be worth it if you are wanting the riverwalk ambience and experience. This is the perfect place to go for those wanting the authentic "tableside guac" but not necessarily the "mexican only" menu. The steaks here are delicious and the restaurant has a much more upscale feel than many of the other restaurants nearby. Service is professional and attentive!

“Disappointed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We went to Boudro's based on the reviews I read here. The atmosphere was great eating outside along the River Walk. Server was attentive. But we were disappointed in the food. Ordered guacamole for two prepared at table side. Maybe I'm not Mexican enough, but we thought it too heavy on celantro. Didn't taste enough avocado, maybe because it was chopped not mashed and not well blended. We also ordered their specialty, blackened prime rib - the worse we've ever had. The pepper was so strong that it over powered the meat flavor. I would consider trying this restaurant again, ordering something different.

“Very Pricey, but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This place has a beautiful setting on the river, call ahead and ask for reservations for outdoor seats! The food is very expensive, and it is pretty good. Everything there costs extra, the sauces and there are no substitutions!

“It was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We had been there for dinner. Very crouded- which is a good signal. But the table was VERY small. No space.
The meal ( Texas steak and Fish) was good. But we could not really enjoy. We felt a bit stressed because of the noise and "trouble" around us.
