Taco Cabana

 3 star(s)  (10/16/2003)

Pappasitos Cantina

 4 star(s)  (01/09/2001)
“Overpriced moderately good Mexican food. Pappasitos gets credit for a reletively innovative menu - however when one considers the many wonderful Mexican restaurants in the Austin area, the quality of food, service and overall dining experience pales in comparison. Service is HORRIBLE (on more than o... ”
