Great ceviche! 8/6/2008

This is one of those rare TexMex food places where there is some healthy, tasty alternative to the regular if you're not feeling like cheese, meat, beans, and rice. The ceviche is outstanding with squid, scallops, fish, tons of fresh tomatoes, cilantro, and spices. The only thing I haven't figured out is why they put green olives in there---that's a first for me. Moreover, there were a lot of them to pick out of the dish. The portion is noteworthy as it is HUGE and a fantastic bargain compared to normal serving sizes/prices (similar to crabcakes). The other reasons for going there---the ""purple"" margarita which includes EverClear so beware and be sure to have a designated driver ready, and the fun, casual atmosphere. Pros: potent margaritas, tasty ceviche at bargain price Cons: are there any? more

NEVER AGAIN! 7/14/2008

If you want marginal, dishonest service and a ""the customer is always wrong"" attitude then I highly recommend Baby Acapulco. We went there for happy hour for drinks and appetizers. Apparently the waitstaff has no idea what items are on the happy hour menu. Otherwise why would we have been told an item was on that menu and then get charged full price for it. When we spoke to the manager about it, you would think she would have apologized and then corrected our check, right? WRONG! Instead she demanded to know which member of the waitstaff had given us that information. Since said waitstaff member was not the one that served us, we didn't remember what he looked like. We thought saying ""we don't know"" would make that abundantly clear but again we were wrong. For a moment we thought she was going to parade us around the restaurant until we indentified the culprit. Unbelivable! We will never set foot in that restaurant again and advise others not to either. Cons: service, management more

Dishonest and Rude 7/14/2008

OMG! This is the most dishonst wait staff and management you have ever seen. I went with a group of coworkers and was getting ready to leave. Each had paid there own bill and added $10 each for a tip. They charge 17% gratuity already! I had ordered 3 margaritas at happy hour prices and a 1/2 price nacho. The waiter had put 2 samplers on our bill and god knows what else. Sylvia the manager pretty much said it was our word against the waiters. 3 margaritas @ $3.75 each and one 1/2 price apetizer at $4.75 my bill came to $51.00! Very dishonest. I can only imagine the waiter was putting his friends food and drinks on hour bill. We used to go there all the time but have decided to go somewhere where they practice ethics. BE VERY AWARE! LOOK VERY CLOSELY AT BILL AND KEEP A WRITTEN TAB OF WHAT YOU ORDER!!\r Cons: service honesty more

Best Margaritas! 6/5/2005

I do not live anywhere near Austin, but I have visited a friend a few times, and he took me to Baby A's to get a margarita. I have tried them at different places (and different states) and normally do not like them, but he suggested I try one. I am so glad I did because they are WONDERFUL!! They have so many options and the drinks are well worth the money. The food and service were very good too, but I everytime I am in Austin, I have to get a margarita at Baby A's. I even tell my friends in Pennsylvania about them! Pros: good food/drinks, friendly staff, reasonable rates Cons: sometimes crowded, sometimes parking more

Horrible music on Sunday 5/20/2005

I went to Baby A's for the first time on a beautiful Austin Saturday afternoon. I should have known better because Shady Grove and Chuey's both had long waits and Baby A's was half empty. The food was okay at best. It reminded me of going to a ""Mexican"" restaurant in my small MidWest hometown. But mediocre food isn't what promted me to write a review... it was Sunday afternoon when I went to Shady Grove to eat. Baby A's had the worst singer I have ever heard. I think it was a little girl, which would be fine for a church picnic, but not for your restaurant on a beautiful Sunday. You can't swing a stick in Austin without hitting a good band, so why they choose this, I don't know. Pros: Prompt seating, Decent patio Cons: So-so food, Terrible music more

Margaritas 11/6/2003

The Margaritas at BABY A's are the best in Austin. Yo soy latina so I know. It is a restaurant for all occasions. A casual date or a family get together. Take the kids or leave the with the babysitter. It's really up to you. Just don't forget to try the Margaritas. more

best margarita in us? easy 9/5/2003

Simply, if you want the best margarita in the US, go to Baby Acapulco's in Austin, TX. Just pick your favorite fruit flavor. If you like it strong, go purple! Pros: great food, several locations, good price more

No Substitution! 9/5/2003

Baby A's has, for a long time now, had the BEST Margaritas in Austin, in the U.S. There is by far no comparison by anyother restaurant in town. And anyone that says different, must be from North of Dallas. Pros: Margaritas!!! more

This place rocks. 2/8/2003

Great place to start the night out. Its one of those Austin things. Careful margaritas will get you!!!!! Pros: Drinks, Patio, View Cons: Hangover, Hangover, Hangove more

Worst Service EVER 1/3/2003

They took forever to seat us even though they weren't busy. Then our server took forever to greet us and take our order. After sitting on the half-empty patio for 20 minutes without even being given chips or water, we walked out. Prior to this, I ate there with 3 friends a long time ago. Our waitress was rude to us and some kind of moisture on the wall was dripping on my friend. Next time, I'm going to Chuy's no matter how long the wait is! Pros: blue margaritas Cons: terrible service more

Every Week 9/16/2002

I visist Baby A's at least once a week, at the 51st or Riverside location. Of course the Rita's are the best for after, but for lunch the Baby A's tortilla soup is to die for. I look forward to rainy days, that means soup for lunch. Now they even have appetitizers half-price on Mon & Tues. We need a Baby A's in San Marcos!!! It's a good thing I work in Austin, so I can get my soup fix weekly! Pros: Service, Inexpensive Cons: lacking parking more
