We all know that the chain Mexican food places are good..but when you want to eat local and contribute local this is one of the best places to go...they have the best chips & salsa, and to die for homemade corn tortillas ever!! I have had the taco plate and cheese enchiladas and they were pretty good...from what I've read, i will order the beef fajitas next time because they say it's really good!

Pros: homemade corn tortillas

Cons: sometimes a long wait

.

Since 2000, we've come to Amaya's for the fajitas and the fajitas only. We get the fajitas plate for two, which is enough food for four people, then take home whatever is left. The homemade chips and salsa are great, the service is acceptable (depending on who you get), and the prices are reasonable for the amount of food you get. I used to say that the fajitas were the only good thing on the menu, but this year the day after Thanksgiving we came here for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised to find it quite delicious. Everytime a visitor comes from outside Texas, we bring them here for some tex-mex, then to The Spaceship (Los Jaliscienses) for some mex-tex. No complaints so far!

Pros: Fajitas are to die for, price is reasonable

Cons: The rest of the menu is so-so...

.

This is by far the worst plate of cheese enchilada's I have ever had. The tomatillo sauce was basically cheap, green-colored corn oil. ZERO flavor. Cheap cheese and thick, chewy tortillas. Aside from this, it was highly overpriced even though the menu said the enchiladas were the special for Monday at $5.99 (and it was actually Monday), my bill was over $10 after tip.

First and absolutely the last trip! If you appreciate AUTHENTIC Mexican cuisine, this is NOT the place for it!

Pros: None

Cons: "Tomatillo mystery sauce"

Great food, great atmosphere and speedy service. Best Mexican food in town. None of the fake "Tex-Mex" food here, this is the real deal for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The food is good, but the prices are a little high and the people who work there aren't exactly friendly to their customers. It gets incredibly crowded inside & since they're part of a shopping center, parking can be a pain. They're good about having take-out orders ready when you get there but you have to make sure to double check it before you leave because they hardly have the orders right when you place multiple orders.

Great cheese enchilladas and home made corn tortillas. This place is busy on the weekdays for lunch so get it to go. Make sure you get an order of the chips and hot sauce....it's fantastic.

I absolutely love this restaurant. They have got great customer service and their menu is easy to look over. Their cheese enchiladas are the best. But if you are a meat kind of person, I would certainly get the ribs. It is so delicious. I usually share that plate with another person. I would totally recommend Amaya's to someone else.

The service was great. However, I did not quite like the food. The cheese is low grade, the homemade taco shells tasted stale which makes me wonder if they are made ahead and then re-heated. The tamales were mushy and the meat in all of the dishes didn't have any flavor whatsoever.

I didn't hate the experience but it was comparable to eating a TV dinner.

The chicken tort. soup and chicken tacos are soooo good. I've tried the chicken tort. soup at other places and no one seasons it just right like Amayas. The salsa and chips are also great. The salsa is not to spicy, just right. I go here whenever I can get over to that side of town. It's always pretty crowded which goes to show what a great austin establishment it is.

.

This is a good place to go for a quick bite. It isn't gourmet, but who is looking for gourmet tacos anyway? It is fresh and fast, and the service is usually great.
It is generally crowded, especially at meal times. However the service is so efficient you usually don't have to wait long.
Not a good place for an intimate date, it is usually pretty loud in here.
Try the tacos of course! I get the 3 tacos, all rice, no beans!

I've been going to Amaya's for 15+ yrs (about 3-5 times a year). They are middle of the road, nothing that is going to knock your socks off, just pretty consistent. Exactly what you want....I guess. They are probably best known for their tacos, very good. I've grown up eating at various mexican restaurants (El Patio, El Gallo, Dario's etc, etc) and they are comparable in product for price. Great breakfast specials during last week of the month (2 for 1's). Simply said a filling restaurant that will satisfy your mexican food craving.

Ok, so you have to know these guys use the Governement cheese, but in my opinion this is the best. Sure, you can go to some other fancy Mexican restraurant and have some Americanized food, but this stuff is fattening and cheesy and just good.

When GF and I go into Austin, and its my turn to pick the place to eat, I usually choose Amayas just for their beef tacos. The meat is well-seasoned, and the fillings are plentiful (especially the cheese), but I think its the homemade corn tortillas that really makes them great. They are kinda half-fried, half-baked (kinda like me, I guess), giving them a unique texture and taste. The downside is that they are just in Austin. They used to have a place in Bastrop, but they closed it, much to my dismay.

Everytime our family goes to Amayas, the staff is very friendly and attentive, they always made sure we had our glasses full with iced-tea. The food is always nice and hot, and all of their tasty mexican food beats all the imitators out there in Austin, their enchiladas are delicious with their tasty red chili sauce, with tonz of cheese!! delicious!!...all their soups are excellent, --especially their tortillas soup!...they rate a 10 on our scale..you wont be dissappointed!

Cons: Parking is probably best in the rear of restaurant

.

Enchilada's are not very good, and made with what seems to be imitation cheese. Don't complain because Manager's are rude and are not responsible for incorrect orders.

I wouldn't recommend driving way across town to eat at Amaya's, but it's a great neighborhood joint. The servers are so friendly, the food is simple but always tasty, and the cost reasonable.

The previous ratings only mention the tacos, but it's worth pointing out that the other dishes are good, too. I typically order the fish or chicken plate, and they're very good.

This is also a great place to take children. The staff are very sweet to them.

This restuarant has great food! They have a daily lunch menu with great prices. The service is good and the wait is not very long at all, but if you go during lunch, expect about a 20 - 30 minute wait. It is located in a strip mall, so the parking is not bad at all.

Before this place got renovated the food was great but now, i think the food is priced too high for the amount and quality of food. There are far better Mex restaurants out there. I used to love the enchilada plate but now they jip you on rice and beans. The tacos i used to love but the meat just isn't flavored well. I absolutely love the Ice tea. And another negative is the tables are very small.

When I eat at Amaya's it reminds me of eating with my family. The chicken tacos are delicious and are made the way they should be...frying a tortilla and not using a taco shell from a box.

I have never before seen corn "crispy" tacos that were not in the lease crispy. They were large, but the tortillas were flabby, the meat was so-so, and the cheese was pure grease. How can people rate this place so highly? I just wasted $10 on a dinner that was not as good as Taco Cabana even. For my money, Chuy's has the best tacos in town that I have found yet.

You don't come here for the atmosphere. You don't come to stare at the pretty people. You come here for something you can't get anywhere else in Austin. Killer tacos. If you get anything else you missed the point.

Okay, if you like Matt's, then you'll like this place. My friend and I both agreed that the enchiladas were just the same thing we got in high school. Rice was so overdone and sticky, the scoop actually cut rice in half and was a perfecty formed gloppy blob. Food for the masses.

Like any good restaurant, Amaya's doesn't allow toxic tobacco smoke.

We always stop by to eat on our way from North Texas to San Antonio.

Terrific Mexican food!

Amaya's is an Austin tradition for more than 20 years. This family-run establishment has the best nachos compuestos in town. Try them and you will turn your nose up at all the rest. Also good are the enchiladas and the menudo.

We were brought here by friends that RAVED about this food so we were expecting some good eats. Guys, this is some cheap ingredients. What is the deal with the cheese? I paid $9 for a lunch entree that was worth a Panchos price.
