Food is good; pricey, but good. Service was amazing. We never had to ask for a refill, and when the kitchen wasn't sure about our order, someone came out personally to make sure what they had was ok. That NEVER happens!

We had a large group of 17 on a Sunday afternoon. Our table was ready almost immediately after we arrived. Our waiter did a great job, and everyone enjoyed their meals. Chips and drinks were refreshed frequently. Thanks for great service! Highly recommend!

I will admit, that the food here is not bad, especially the beef and chicken fajita's which were super tender, delicious and and very tasty, however, I don't think $32 for chicken or beef fajita's (for 2) really compliments the food, I mean the food was good, but not for the price. So I highly recommend newbs who have not... More

A great cantina will have a unique variation on a drink standard and UJ is just such a place with their specialty Margarita Swirl. Food is wonderful, too.

Everything was full of flavor. Great salsa and chips. Guacamole full of fresh flavor. Can be little noisy. Highly recommend for good Tex Mex fans!

We ordered the plata grande platter for our table. It came out smokin and smelling fabulous. The food was good and combination and quality a lot for 3 people. The shrimp and beef and chicken fajitas were excellent. The ribs were just ok - not tender and juicy like normal - not sure why as usually ribs are the best.... More

They were open on Christmas Eve. Large fancy place on the first floor in downtown Austin. Service was very good. We had fajitas for two. They were good. 90% of the vegetables were onions. I would have liked more bell peppers. Seasoning on the meat was mild. They have a tortilla machine. Tortillas were OK, but they did not bring... More

Wow - what used to be a fun outing spot has definitely gone down hill. Service is slow. Salmon is terribly dry. Bacon wrapped shrimp has become average. And with every opportunity to remedy the experience they drop the ball. Unfortunate. Thank goodness for competition.

Stopped in for the reverse margarita and appetizerz. Staff was very friendly. Drinks were good. Appetizers were perfect. Finished with the Chocolate Piñata. One of a kind dessert. A must.
