Fast service but bad food 11/23/2010

Recently a co-worker and I decided to have a quick bite and el Mercado was close to our office. This is not the first time I have eaten here and been disappointed but decided to give it another try. Parking was abundant and shaded with additional spots across the street for overflow. The service is great, and once we were seated we had chips and salsa right away. We both ordered form the express lunch menu, three crispy tacos and enchilada plates. The food came surprisingly quick, we didn’t even finish our chips, but what arrived was a real disappointment. Small portions with a so-so tasting food, definitely a bad combination, but to make things worse the price is not worth what we ate. Way too expensive. I will not be back. more

Great service, bad chips 10/27/2006

First, this place has excellent service! However the big drawback for me was that they serve you store-bought chips (big no no). The salsa is good but the chips.... Didn't stay for a meal, just drinks, but if the chips are store-bought what else is. Maybe a little picky but I could stay home and eat chips like that. Pros: Service Cons: chips more

NOW THIS IS SERVICE 10/6/2003

The best enchiladas & margaritas in Austin! I love this place! It has been here for 20 years, and they have really kept up the great quality. But, what made the meal wonderful was the attentive service of the waitress and the manager who came by the table to be sure everyone was happy, now that makes a world of difference when it comes to service. Not many managers will do that but here they do and thats what keeps me coming back!!! And the music on Friday nights is fantastic!"" more

Yummy! 7/10/2002

What can I say, this place is a great little restaurant where you can go and be sure that you'll get great food with nice service. They try to be so accomodating to customers needs. For example, I can't eat anything too spicy so I had to ask for them to prepare my food a bit on the bland side. They were absolutely wonderful in making sure my order came out just as I had requested. Even the owner was kind enough to come and check on us to see if everything was up to par. (They're customer service is probably one of the many reasons why they have 4 locations in Austin now) This is one restaurant I recommend highly for Mexican food. Pros: Inexpensive, Accomodating, Delicious Food more
