Good C&S, terrible enchiladas. – Good atmosphere. Good chips and salsa. However, the worst enchiladas I have ever had. Maybe other items are great but these are not (cheese, was more like velveeta). Rice was tasteless and burnt from being in the oven.

Wouldn't recommend with so many other great places to eat at in Austin.

Hooked on first bite! – El Gallo has quickly become my boyfriend and I's favorite restaurant. As a Hispanic, I can be very critical in regards to Tex-Mex and every Saturday my boyfriend and I make it a point to try a new TXMX restaurant for lunch. We came across El Gallo one Saturday and after our first bite of chips and salsa we knew we were hooked. They by far have the best chips and salsa I have ever tasted!!! It was a solid medium heat with the right amount of chunkiness. The waitress told us that they are both made in house every day. I was also in love with their Mango Margarita which tasted fresh and delicious. Since the first visit, we have been back countless times as our tastebuds are constantly craving their food.

Best Mexican Around – Ate at El Gallo last year when visiting Austin. Plan to eat there again this year on a return trip. This is the best Mexican restaurant and atmosphere I have ever been to. Nice, quiet, romantic, yet suitable for families with children. Staff was wonderful. Excellent service and even better food.

Best House Margarita's – We go to El Gallo all the time and we just love it! The food is always consistent, the house margaritas are the way to go, the owners pleasant and the location and parking are always convenient . There is no shortage of mexican food in Austin, so it boils down to a matter of personal taste, but we really enjoy El Gallo - give it a try!

the best – I am a weekly regular there - it's that good. I rarely eat mexican food anywhere else, because if I'm going to eat mexican, why not just go to El Gallo? The cheese enchiladas are my favorite - they just ooze with cheese. And the queso is my favorite in town. The staff is really, really friendly, too.

great fajitas – The fajitas are really good. Beef or chicken are both great. Cheese enchiladas are great, too. The wait service is great.

Chicken Chimichangas – The best I've ever tasted with it's white melted cheese mixed in with the chicken and deep fried, and all the trimmings.

Mmmm...good! – El Gallo is a perfect lunch venue. Their chicken tacos are to die for. Priced just right and easy to find (across from St. Ed's), you really should check it out!
