We stumbled upon this place while we were in town and we're so so glad we did. This is the best Mexican food I think I have ever had (went for breakfast twice) and our waitress was wonderful too. We even went back for margaritas at night as well. If you like spice, try the Habernero Margarita. Also love the... More

This restaurant had very unique options of food to try. We tried the Avocado margaritas that everyone raved about. We really enjoyed the smooth consistency. We also had the salsa sampler to start with, it was full of very different flavors! I had the blackened fish tacos which were delicious! I could tell that the corn tortillas were homemade! That's...

We visited Curras which had come well recommended. They have inside and outside seating. We chose to sit outside as it was a reasonably nice evening. The restaurant was less than half full when we arrived. The table outside was not clean and had remnants from the prior guests. Not a great start. After a relatively long wait, a waiter... More

We stopped in for the food, which was fantastic but the margaritas were even better! We tried 3 kinds, the mango A+++, the strawberry A++++, and the Avocado, which sounded weird to us but we were willing to try it. It was Amazing!!!

This is a classic indoor/outdoor laid-back South Austin eatery with an interesting menu and good service. Parking can be a challenge but it's worth it. I love the queso fundido con rajas (melted cheese with spicy pepper strips though I usually get it without chorizo, which I think makes tit too greasy). Try anything with the fried bananas. Enjoy the... More

We had a family gathering here last month because the guest of honor liked their avocado ritas. So we went here and after hearing from everyone who ate and sampling some of the others' food, I can say please there are vastly superior Mexican places in Austin to patronize, go there instead. My boyfriend ordered a beef burrito. It came... More

Neat little place. More of a local place. Cool vibe inside. Great choices, Spanish helpful, but just ask for help. Wonderful drinks! We are in Austin every other year, we always come at least once. Medium prices.

Cool atmosphere, ok food. Parking was horrible. We had to park in a neighborhood across a busy 4 lane road and play frogger to get across the street. I had higher expectations with the food. It wasn't piping hot when it made it to the table and was just ok.

Curra's is in the Austin Mexican Food Hall of Fame. This is not Classic TexMex. More interior Mexico. This time we had some new items (for us). Started with Jalapeño Relleno Appetizer. Really cheesy, nice batter and the pepper had a bite-will definitely have this again. Comes with beans and rice do it could be a small meal. We also... More
