My family decided to try this place on a whim and it was hands-down the worst Tex-Mex i've ever had. The potatoes were under cooked and hard, the tortillas didn't even deserve to be called tortillas, and the bacon was so salty, i could've scooped up a cup of ocean water and have drunk less salt. The carne guisada tasted like Alpo dog food and the omelette was drowning in cheese and sauce. The best thing about this place was the pancakes, which tasted sort of like carnival funnel cake. My whole family became severely ill with extreme cases of Montezuma's Revenge shortly afterwards and we didn't get to enjoy the rest of our day in this beautiful city. Save your money for all the fantastic, little food trucks.

The Feria on Lamar is a easy place to get seated and a good place to eat Mexican food.The have great margaritas when you buy top shelf. One margarita will make you very happy, they are huge. The food always comes fresh and piping hot. The salsa and chips are fresh. We have eaten there many times over the years and never gotten ill from any of the food or drinks. It is fun to go there on a Thursday around 7PM when they have the mariachis playing and singing. They have outdoor seating for smokers. We don't smoke and usually can sit outside on the deck and be spaced away from the smokers. The interior is basic, nothing fancy and is a local place to eat. Give it a try, food and drink will not disappoint you.

Guacamole is excellent. Great food and drink prices. The service is consistently good. The Cedar Park location has a patio as well.

Stopped here for a solo lunch and came away very satisfied. I had the enchiladas verdes and found them very good; not the best, but above average and I have eaten a lot of enchiladas around the world. The rice was ok and the beans fair. The service was all you could ask. They seated me promptly, took my order, served it in a timely manner, and kept my drink replenished. In addition he staff was friendly. Oh yeah, the salsa was good but may be too spicy for some.

Ok. Mexican martini tasted like a watered down margarita. Son said the fajitas were some of the best he's had, my fish tacos were passable and the salsa was spicier than what you typically find. Many better places in town.
