Bouldin outpost known for its margaritas, extensive salsa bar & large patio.- Google
"Their salsa bar is excellent, and their limonada is quite addictive."
"This is real Mexican food, not TEXmex."

Could be better but holy salt salt salt everything had an extremely salty taste. I bet if they tamed their salt input it would be pretty good but you have way too many options in Austin for this quality.

The food is great. One of my favorite Tex-Mex places. The wait for food can be quite long, however. I went during lunch time on a weekday and it took nearly an hour for our food to be prepared.

Ok, I'll admit it--walking up to Polvo's for the first time was a bit unnerving. The bright pink patio sprinkled with plastic folding tables and lined with plastic bags filled with water (to ward off mosquitoes) doesn't exactly say, "this will be delicious." But once I settled back in that plastic folding chair, sipped that tasty margarita, and visited the salsa bar (hel-looo, escabeche), my tune changed. What Polvos lacks in atmosphere (which actually became charming after a bit), it makes up for in delicious meats wrapped in tortillas and covered with sauce and cheese. The Enchiladas de la Casa or Goliath Burrito are safe bets for a first-timer. For something a little more daring, try the Chili Relleno al Nogal--it has a pecan cream sauce that sounds a little strange on paper, but definitely works. Just be sure to save enough room for several trips to the salsa bar. You'll need it. EDIT FOR BREAKFAST: The pork chilaquiles with tomatillo sauce and eggs over easy are hands-down the greatest thing I've ever eaten at Polvos. Do yourself a favor and have breakfast there!

By far my favorite Mexican restaurant in Austin! Love the salsa bar with 3 different kinds of salsa. Great margaritas too! Can't wait to go back again 😋

Went for breakfast, food mediocre. Staff not attentive, salsa for your chips is extra?? Fresh made tortillas are delicious. Don’t know what the hype is about this place?? What's more important, refilling condiments or your customers??

One of my favourite places to get a bloodymary drink, because they make them really well: which IMO is difficult & rare to find around Austin. Their in-house salsas are fresh & tasty. I like all the dishes I've had here!

Omg! This place is so good! This was my second visit and shared chips and queso and one Goliath burrito between 2 people, which was more than enough to fill us both, but the best was getting a pitcher full of strawberry margarita and blueberry margaritas! We had a pitcher of blueberry the first visit and tonight we had the real strawberry one. WONDERFUL! You get around 6 or 7 glasses full out of ine pitcher for $28. Damn good and totally recommend if your looking for a good time with friends. Also love being able to bring my dog along with! That was the cherry on top for us. Definitely come back more often!
