  • Polvos is the only place to take out-of-towners who need to be figuratively punched in the face with Austin's diverse and youthful culinary spirit. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The brown salsa is TO DIE FOR. I could drink it it's so freaking good!!!
  • Fabulous salsa, mmmmm
  • Amazing pickle/salsa bar. Don't fear the trailer-parky decor. This is THE spot for Tex-Mex in Austin.
  • Holy frozen margaritas!!!!
  • We looooove Polvos queso. However, if you're still sitting in the parking lot until a table opens up, Polvos might take your drink orders while you wait!
  • Pescado al mojo de ajo: totally worth not being able to kiss anyone for at least 3 days after.
  • Get a pitcher of margaritas. Fun for everyone!
  • Best Chillaquilles ever! Must have!
  • Polvos, I love you. and I will always, but for the love of everything awesome about your patio, please stop turning into 'Club Polvos' at 8 pm. Music=too loud and crappy.
  • By far the best in cc Austin
  • Very crowded, mediocre service, but great food! Loved the shrimp fajitas!
  • Fun fact: Polvos was the very first Tabbedout venue ever!
  • Love that place.
  • it's tex-mex. do not be fooled into thinking it's actually mexican food...
  • I hear this is some of the best mexican food in Austin.. Going to check it out soon..
  • The margaritas secretly have everclear in them! I love getting outta my mind and this is the place to get a pitcher and do just that!
  • The fish tacos are so good!!!!
  • Loved it all. Margs, salsa, enchiladas and fish. Great stuff!
  • Margaritas are potent but delicious. Love the self-serve salsa bar. I got enchiladas and they were damn good.
