My boyfriend and I stumbled upon Serranos yesterday just driving around. Bored with our usuals, we took the opportunity to try something new. Even from the car we could see the charm right away.
We were seated right away (it was about 4 on a Sunday) and our waiter was quick to get our drink orders. My boyfriend asked about the tequila and he seemed knowledgeable about their selection, so we let him make the decision on which tequila to be used for our margaritas and Mexican martinis. They were amazing! Trudy's was a favorite, but they may have them beat. One down side, the glasses were warm and I don't think he noticed. It is alright though, the drink itself made up for it.
While waiting for our food, another staff member came over and spoke to us for a minute (we had our four year with us and he draws people in all the time). She told us about some of the events held there, one with a party of 800! Both she and our waiter were very friendly and had an Austin way about them.
Our food was fantastic, being a vegetarian I had a few more choices than veggie burger or salad. The salsa was super fresh and my spinach enchiladas were something to write home about :) My boyfriend had the steak fajitas with their version of bar be cue sauce, he said they were great. OH! and they have a kids menu and made chocolate milk for my son...he is easy to please, but still, I always appreciate when a restaurant can, it means we can go back.
Overall a fine experience, he really look forward to going back!
Pros: Atmosphere, Friendly Staff, Magaritas
