Austin Grill has a good TexMex menu with lots to choose from. The wait staff is very friendly and usually quite efficient. I have dined their often but my latest visit was just for appetizers . I love their TexMex egg rolls in combo with a quesadilla. It also nice to sit on the patio when the weather is nice.

Had dinner last night with my daughters. The first site I see are three teen "greeters" They were busy checking out the guys in the bar, then walked us past several nice booths to a dirty booth next to the dirty dishes. The ribs I ordered were so dry they had no taste. I lost my appetite after seeing the... More

I love it here. Not quite Mexican, not quite Western, some where in between. Most food is what you would typically call Mexican fare. But they have a good mix of other options. But what I like most is their service. They are always having specials, and each day of the week there is something to take advantage of. They... More

If the title doesn't say it then I just don't know what to tell you. Tried this place twice, food was okay, not fantastic, but how do I explain my normal steel stomach turning onto mush, not once but TWICE?

Austin Grill has a great Happy Hour! They have cheap, but yummy, small plates, of appetizers, as well as great drink specials! We love to pop by, after a busy day @ work, & we don't even need to eat dinner!

We used to be regulars at Austin Grill; the servers were friendly and always seemed interested in engaging with you and sharing their food recommendations. The menu has changed and is now run of the mill. The bar selection is horrible and the staff disinterested. The management changes on a regular basis so there is no ties or interest in... More

The atmosphere is fine, the service acceptable, the food also pretty good. I do agree that the menu changes often. I used to go there for their tortilla soup which was excellent, but now not on the menu daily. Their taco salad is good. It's pricing is reasonable for the area.

Went for a late lunch. I do not understand why the menu changes every time I go. And not always for the better. I have not ordered directly off the menu for a long time. I got a black bean burrito. Simple item that is not on the menu. They are promoting the table side guacamole, which I don't eat... More

Fantastic Happy Hour! Great Prices, great food and service. Happy Hour is a great deal but dinner is expensive. We stayed and got a couple entrees. Pretty pricey for Mexican but great taste and quality.

We went here with my wife's cousin and a friend of his. They told us it was really good. Well thier's was good but mine wasn't. I got chile rellanos and it was not what i had expected. Usually it is battered and fried. Mine was grilled without any batter. The pepper itself was half cooked. I decided not to... More
