I went shopping at my favorite stores when I went for a stroll in the parking lot and dont recall a Mexican resturant kind of a traditional old fashioned which reminds me of San Antonio Texas Mi Terras. I do know all the spices are from El Paso and Juarez. I watched people talking meeting new friends and a very happy place the bartender is truly fast gifted and really knows how to make a real margaritas especially the Mango flavor. I had the beef Nachos delicious spices perfectly made so Mexican flare of Texas reason why it's called Texican Cafe. I do remember this resturant originated on Manchaca rd in the eighties. This will be a new hangout for me why??A really fun place to meet new friends everyone is happy and family gathering just pure love all around when I first entered the resturant I truly felt at home. I was told the Enchiladas are too die for so my next visit will be soon just to try this signature dish. So glad I walked out of my favorite store and found great nachos! Definitely highly recommend this location on 4141 Capital of tex highway. Parking so easy lots of parking. A must try Enjoy yelpers
"1 of our favorite restaurants in Austin. Great food, service & prices."
"This was a catered and served event for my company. Edith was very nice and accommodating and everyone enjoyed the food."
"The food was very good - the menu a bit different from other Tex Mex places - choices are more unique - and we liked that."
"The chips and salsa come hot and ready! The sizzling entrees smell so good. They know everything about timing with food and when it’s ready to eat. Did I mention the dessert!? The flan is amazing."
"Finally! My search for awesome TexMex is over."
"The Taco Salad and the Tortilla Soup were excellent."
"If there is a better Mexican restaurant in Austin, we haven’t found it."
"As always, the Texican delivered good food and great service at a good price."
"The service was polite, helpful and efficient. The food was delicious. I will definitely go back."
"What a great lively spot for Mexican food, either take out or stay in. There is a lovely party atmosphere that is fun to enjoy. And the margaritas are gigantic!"
"Excellent food and service. "
"Our group reservation for 25 was ready when we arrived and the service was good for such a large group. The food was good too!"
"This was our first visit and it was hands down one of the best Tex-mex restaurants I've ever eaten at. The food is absolutely amazing and the atmosphere is also great. Excellent service and the manager went out of her way to stop by our table and make sure everything was good. Highly recommended!!"
"Best San Antonio enchiladas! They are so savory I crave them even in my sleep lol must try the carne guisada is so tender it almost melts in your mouth you will never be able to have enchiladas without it! They are Austin's best kept Tex-Mex secret."
"Outstanding!!! I highly recommend this place it's been a favorite of mine since the mid 90s. I no longer live in the Austin area, but I try to make time for Tehe Texican every time I'm back in town. I recently had the chicken quesadillas, and they were even better than I remembered. My family and I love this place."
"Tried this place last night with my family. Very good!!!!! I have passed by this place so many times and finally decided to try it. Got the sour cream enchiladas with a side of grilled shrimp. It was perfect. And they seem to be willing to make things custom. Will be back soon!!!!"
"My wife and I dropped by for our Texican "fix". She had the tortilla soup, and I had breakfast tacos. Both were great as usual, and the staff was very friendly. We'll definitely be back!"
"So good! From the initial chips, salsa and some queso and the entrees the Texican again did not disappoint. Yum."
"They had Monday night special of 99 cent tacos. They were awesome. The chips and salsa were perfect, salsa had a good spicy flavor. I will definitely be dining there more often. As an added bonus, my server was awesome and very attentive. "
"Omg I Love Y’all So Much Stuffed avacados is The Bomb. As well as the Martinis on Wednesday. Lots!!"
"At the Manchaca location now for lunch. Ate at the Lamar location for lunch yesterday and at the Lakeline location for dinner."
"We will always be regulars at Texican Cafe - love their Tortilla soup and chimichangas the most. Their prices are decent and I adore their chips and fresh salsa and their establishments are clean. Don't forget dessert also!"
"We have made it a "tradition" of hitting them up on Taco Monday for the crazy cheap tacos as well as cheap appetizers during happy hour. Me, my wife and daughter can eat tacos and get an appetizer for the table for under $20. We like to sit on the patio and have had the same waiter the last 6-7 times. Service has been very good and he always recognizes us and members our order even after we haven't gone in awhile."
"Have eaten here many times before, but this was first time for chile relleno. I had mine stuffed with shredded chicken. Totally delicious and wonderful from the light batter, to the great sauce and generous filling."
"This is the second time we've been there and we would go back again. The service was good. The house salsa has a little kick, but not too much. Had the chimichanga with fajita chicken, which was delicious."
"Tacos were delish and service was perfecto!"
"I have been eating here for years! since I was a child. I grew up in Manchaca. They have many great things! The queso flameado is the first thing I would order. The rita's are strong and tasty! The salsa is fresh and cold and has amazing flavor w a bit of heat! We usually go for the fajitas of any kind. The kids get enchiladas and they love them. Enjoy!"
"Love the Texican, great food and great service consistently, always a good experience! I had the cabrito... it was perfect. Juicy and tender with an amazing seasoning, always love it. Washed it down with a Texican Martini, which is their take on the Mexican Margarita, probably the best I have had."
"The hostess who seated us was friendly & our waiter was very nice, too. We weren't rushed at all & everything we ordered was delicious. We ordered queso & steak fajitas. So yummy! We'll be back for more!"
"I been going here for a good 28 of those 30 yrs. Love the Texican!"
"Very nice service! Good drinks really really good chips and salsa!! This place passed the chips and salsa test and drink test as well. I think we may have found our new Mexican restaurant!"
"This is the second time we've been there and we would go back again. The service was good. The house salsa has a little kick, but not too much. Had the Chimichanga with fajita chicken which was delicious."
"Love the enchilada special. Great service Tuesday night."
