Jorge's is a classic in the North Austin area, but is closing this month to re-locate on Burnet Rd. They should re-open in February with the same staff, but in a larger more modern space. We will be there for the opening to sample some of the fine frozen margaritas.

I remember Jorge's at this location for 25 years, but had never eaten there until last week. The parking lot was full, there was a big crowd with many families, and a 30-minute wait, so we thought the food must be good. We were surprised by the opposite. I ordered a taco and quesadilla. There was a generous amount of meat on the taco, but it wasn't very good. The "quesadilla" was two separate super-crisp tortillas with some melted cheese. I hope it wasn't just Velveeta, but it could have been. My husband didn't like his meal any better. Perhaps other items on the menu are tastier, and that's why there is such a big crowd, but that was not my experience. Service was friendly. Also, the path to the entrance was full of weeds and unswept; the women's room was very old, except for the one basin. What did I miss?

Last weekend, we went to Austin and wanted real TEX-MEX food. The fish taco's were just really flavorful, filling, with just the right amount of spice. Staff was very helpful and friendly.
