  • 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]
  • Sit on the patio and share a pitcher of margaritas with a buddy. PS: black salsa FTW!
  • The brown salsa is TO DIE FOR. I could drink it it's so freaking good!!!
  • Drank margaritas
  • 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!
  • poor service, stale chips c- food
  • 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!
  • Loud sorority girls. You'll probably hear Macarena played on the stereo. The red and black salsas are okay. Don't fill up on the pickled carrots or you won't want to order an overpriced entre.
  • 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...
