Disappointed – We decided to try this place after reading the reviews. We liked the atmosphere and the salsas, but that;s it. The queso tasted like the nacho sauce you get at the movie theater and thechicken fajitas were made with cheap meat - chewy and gross. We paid the same as we would at better places - so we were not impressed and will not go back.

Greatest of them All! : ] – In the shopping strip in between the sushi bar and kartie kids place stands the most best mexican restuarant you can imagen. The place is outstanding. With 6 different salas 1. Cilantro 2. Verde 3. Roasted peppers 4. Chipole/red 5. Blk Bean 6. Escarvichi veggies.Yumm! You might wanna ask for a water because it will come in handy! Everything is wonderful, there is so much to choose from on the menu. Their Chill Reno with pork and chipole sause on the bottom to make it the right touch is justt great! Along with Lime Cilantro Rice and Borracho beans! Over all this place is to good to be missed check it out!

The Austin Hot Sauce Festival King! – "Rueben Rodriguez is Austin's grand master of the chile salsa -- of all types. Botanita's is the home of the famous chip tower, surrounded by veggie escabeche and five different outstanding salsas. Many incredible seafood items, excellent breakfast, great mole and homemade tamales, and some of the best enchiladas in town. The perfect plate? Smoked chicken enchiladas with chipotle sauce, lime-cilantro rice, borracho beans, and salad with jicama -- yummm. Probably by far the best interior food in Austin. There's a reason their a 10 time Austin Chronicle Food Critic Award Winner!." - Austin Chronicle

Old-Mexico ambience with some of Austin's best south-of-the-border cuisine. – In Short
Past the strip mall exterior is a vibrant place decorated with the flavor of Old Mexico; colorful rugs and large Aztec murals lining the walls. A treasure trove of memorabilia keeps the eye busy while taking in the fresh smells. Evita's has six famous salsas and hot tortilla chips. El Rey combos feature enchiladas, crispy tacos and tamales. The mole puebla is two enchiladas made with ancho, cascabel chilies, peanuts and chocolate.

Great Food - Good Prices – Small place; family feeling. Great, authentice food. Service was prompt. I prefer these smaller, family-ran authentic places to the large franchise places.

User review by sandraal530 – As concierge I'm constantly looking out for new restaurants. My experience at Botanitas was at best average. After receiving our menus we asked if there were any specials and we were told no. The menu was on the pricey side for a whole in wall but expected good food. What I receieved although not bad, I could have gotten down the street for half the price. Upon leaving we went to pay for our meal when we see a lunch special sign underneath the register. We asked why we were not informed of the specials and were told you may only receive this upon "request". My companion was a little upset upon seeing the meal he paid 9 dollars for to be the lunch menu for four. I felt it was a little dishonest and there are to many great restaurants out there to waste my time with Bontanitas again.

Yummy – This is Austin's best kept secret. The food is wonderful. The margaritas are a good price and where else can you get a bowl of chips w/ six different varieties of sauces (included with meal and not additional).

The food is always piping hot, the prices are VERY reasonable, and it is truly the best Mexican food I've eaten in Austin.

Service is great and all family owned. You must eat here if you haven't already.
