One Last reservation needed...Mexican

We have completed our reservations and here is the plan: Thurs night--Uchi, Sat lunch Salt Lick Driftwood and surroounding vineyards, and Saturday night--Lambert's. Sun brunch: Maria's Taco Xpress. Sunday is superbowl and we are staying at The Driskill, so unsure about sunday night. What are your thoughts?

But, looking for a Friday night reservation for a fun group of 30 somethings from out of town.I really want Mexican, but am having a hard time finding a place that has great food (can be either interior or Tex Mex), fun or unique ambience, with great drinks. Any thoughts?

Also will have to go for Migas fri am...

Thank you!

  1. for a group that size, you might try matt's el rancho

    1. If you mean 30-something in age, not group size, then I'd definitely skip Matt's. Azul Tequila isn't fancy, but it's reasonably priced and the food (interior Mex, mostly) is great. Curra's is another option. Try the avocado margarita! Here's a good thread about interior Mex in Austin:

        AND Azul Tequila usually has mariachis on Fri night! great food.

          The mariachis can be a bit loud though. I second the great food if you stay on the left (interior) side of the menu.

      2. If you're looking for a place to watch the Super Bowl within walking distance, I'd recommend Daddy's Bar & Grill. It's about a block down 6th street. Tons of awesome HDTV's, lots of space, and pretty good burgers and wings.

        1. Saturday night you need to have the amazing Aramark nachos at the Palmer Events Center during Carnaval....amazing eats! then the carnitas french fries on sunday at lunch at Fuegos!

          1. sorry, i misread that. I only suggested matt's for 30 people. azul, curra's, sazon, fonda all good choices.
