These people are ridiculous. I brought my younger sister there for lunch recently. We asked to sit in the portion of the patio that was in the sun, and they told us they were saving those seats for bigger parties. We sat in our plastic chairs for about 10 minutes and were about to leave when the waiter finally came over to ask for our order. It was as if just the two of us were not worth wasting their time on. Then, as we were eating, they came over and told me I need to move to the other side of the table so another couple could sit at the table with us, even though there were literally 20 tables empty. The food was pretty decent and the drinks were good, but they definitely don't need my business.

Best beef fajitas I have had in Austin so far! Their margaritas are also incredibly tasty, and if you order a pitcher there is more than enough to go around. The wait staff can be slow, but they are very accommodating. They have a salsa bar on the inside which is very cool, but not always worth the extra dollar if you're very hungry since the bowls are so small.

Polvos – Spanish for "the margaritas will sneak up on you". I highly recommend their frozen margs and mexican martinis, but watch out – there's definitely some everclear in there. The food is fantastic as well. I generally stick with the fajitas or enchiladas, but last time got adventurous and tried a torta. Probably the second best torta I've had (first is from Primo's food truck just down the street). Definitely get the salsa bar. It costs a couple extra bucks, but is worth it for the pickled veggies alone.

I've been here 3 times now and they probably have my favorite carne guisada in town. I always get the carne guisada enchilladas topped with queso, it's amazing. With that being said, there isn't a lot else I like about the restaurant, it's usually busy and noisy. The parking lot is set up a little awkwardly, and is usually full. The staff has ranged from ok to rude as hell, so this is probably what could use the most improvement besides the booths. Avoid the booths, because a few have seats that are really messed up and besides being uncomfortable they might not be attached to the booth anymore so watch out when shifting/standing. It's strange to pay extra for salsa, and though it's pretty good, unlimited and there is a variety, I've never known any Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurant to do this. It's a testament to their carne guisada enchilladas that I am still wanting to come back, because if they weren't great I'd be fine with never coming back.

Awesome margaritas. Great service, and quick seating even for a large group on a Saturday with no notice. Some of the best chips I've had, too.

Polvos has the best fajitas in town by far! The atmosphere is laid back and fun - a great dinner spot for a date or night out with friends!
