“Best Mexican Martini in Town!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Order the "Steak al la Mexicana" and a "Mexican Martini" ... or 2 (that's the limit) and you'll be glad you did. The perfect combo. Our family has been going to Jardin Corona for years - we condider it one of Austin's best kept secrets. The wait staff is knowlegable, curtious and friendly. They also have a great breakfast menu! Do yourself a favor and try it.

“GOOD INEXPENSIVE FOOD”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We recently visited this restaurant for dinner on the Sunday night before Thanksgiving. While the ambiance is not that of a high-end restaurant (simple but with a Mexican motif), the menu has a great variety of Tex-Mex, and Mexican food. The wait staff were very accommodating and the food was wonderful. Kids are welcome with a special menu for them. We have visited many Tex-Mex and Mexican restaurants in Austin in the past and on this trip, and this definitely one of my favorite.

“MexicAwesome!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

After a long day of work, my Girlfriend and I decided to try a mexican place that was recommended by our apartment complex. It was very close to where we live, so we figured, why not. When we got there, they immediately got us chips and salsa and water. This may appear to be a minor things, but you'd be surprise how often i have to wait a long time for water. Our waiter was very nice. You could tell english was his second language. Which in my mind, just adds authenticty to a mexican joint. We ordered the Queso, some echiladas, and a Burrito, with a pitcher of Margaritas. The Margaritas were great! we ordered top shelf, but they only gave us well, which honestly tasted just as good. They also only charged us for well, so no harm no foul. The food was true authentic mexican food. It was delicious and spicy. They Queso was hot and gooey. Everything about our meal was awesome. We ended up eating way too much, and leaving there with our pants unbuttoned. I would recommend this place to anyone who's looking for good mexican food!

“Great Mexican food at great prices”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

My son, who lives nearby, steered us to this place. The margaritas were superior. There were many selections on the menu. There were three of us and we each ordered dishes we had never tried before. We were NOT disappointed. They were all great! I recommend it to anyone who is in the area.
