Serving traditional Mexican food and potent margaritas around Austin since 1972. – In Short
This traditionally decorated restaurant features a separate bar with a large-screen TV usually tuned to sporting events. Fridays and Saturdays feature live music to accompany margarita sipping and chips and salsa munching. Antonio's pechugas de pollo come in three varieties, but the favorite seems to be breaded and fried chicken breasts stuffed with Monterey Jack cheese, bacon and mushrooms that are topped with chili con queso on a bed of rice with beans.
Really good stuff! – I love it here. The food is delicious, the portions are huge, the staff is friendly, the atmosphere is laidback and comfortable. Try the enchilada dip-- you will not be disappointed!
why the change? – I used to frequent the Jollyville location but the last time I went there were some changes and not for the best. I judge a Mexican restaurant by the salsa and margaritas. While the salsa was still good the margaritas tasted like a chalky sweet tart. Very sweet and definitely light on the tequila.
The prices also went up. I'm glad it was happy hour because I would have been very upset to pay almost $7 for four greasy mini egg rolls. What happened??? Please bring the old Antonio's back!!
