Tex-Mex near Lake Travis? Need help

danhole Jun 29, 2007 12:53 PM

We are going to a place close to Lake Travis, around Lakeway, and we are looking for a resto close by that is kid friendly and not very pricey. It must have good fajitas, and plain guacamole (if possible.) Anyone??

    Rosie's Tamale House on 71 is close. I am not sure about the fajitas. I haven't been in awhile. I remeber the enchiladas being good. It use to be BYOB (Bring your own beer) and still may? So maybe don't go late if you have kids? :)

          Okay. We just got back from Los Pinos. Here's our opinion, for what it's worth.

          The food was very very good. I had the Mushroom Enchilades with Green sauce. They had a really nice flavor. Mild and very fresh. I hate overly spicey food. This was just right. The refried beans were excellent and tasted homemade.

          My date had the Conchinita Pibil. He really enjoyed it. (This is all he had to say)

          The queso was excellent......very creamy.......i could eat more right now.....It had a dallop of guacamole, ground beef and salsa.......deeeeelish.......

          I had a rita on the rocks.......it had no alcohol.....I swear......but i didn't complain because it was too early for me to have alcohol anyway......

          The water tasted like bleach. eeeewww.

          The digs were drab and dark, (my date's opinion)

          The people are very nice......our waiter was a little......no, not a little...... she was very inexperienced.

          I'd go there again.......because i really liked the food.....isn't that what matters???
          Maybe not.......maybe what makes a good dining experience is not just the food.
