Be prepared, this is going to be disgusting. I actually have refrained myself from saying more publicly, but consumers should know. I loved takoba, it was my favorite restaurant. My last visit to takoba was my last. I ordered the beef tacos, and enjoyed the first one. However after a taco the first bite of the second taco and was going for another bite, I noticed a half cooked live roach crawling out. Words don't begin to explain the emotions I went through. I never felt so disgusted. I immediately called the waitress over and told her in a quiet tone what was in the food. I didn't want others around me to hear it and begin to vomit. She took the plate and came back to tell me that our food was on the house. As if I'd expect anything less. I left it at that. I will never return. Make sure you check your food!

One of my favorite Mexican food places in Austin (the only place I will eat the rice bc as a Mexican I am very picky about it). The food is too good and it is consistently good. Very authentic. I recommend the platos de tacos - bistec or pescado!

The food was okay. I got a quesadilla with chicken and a mojito. Not the best I've ever had, not the worst. The reason I am giving Takoba two stars is because of the service. We had reservations for a party of 8. Right from the start the service was slow. The waitress eventually made her way over and took our drink orders. After we got out drinks she took forever to come take our dinner order. The food came out fairly quickly, but our waitress was nowhere to be found. When it came time to get the check we waited at least 10-15 minutes before I finally gave up and flagged down a different waitress because our waitress had pretty much disappeared. To top it all off, they don't split checks! What a nightmare for a party of 8! They didn't have that information on the website, I wasn't informed when I called to make reservations, and we weren't informed at the beginning of dinner. If I had know, I would have picked a different restaurant. I spoke to the manager and she was no help at all. Because of the terrible service we were late to our next event and the manager didn't seem to care at all. I would not recommend this place. There are so many restaurants in Austin with better food and better service for a cheaper price.

Average tex mex in a modern setting. Good outdoor area for groups.

Not sure why this place is in the low 4/5's good food, great brunch and a cool crowd. Get a mimosa carafe which packs a full bottle of champagne for only $7 its a steal.

Worst service we have had in quite a while. After an hour asked were our order was (4 tacos and guacamole); bartender said they were busy; 15 min later asked again and they lost our order then they tried to charge us twice for the food. Took another 20 min to get the bill resolved. Too many good choices in Austin to put up with that. We won't be going back.

Authentic Mexican taste! Refried beans, queso fundido, salsas (all 3), nopales, and chilaquiles were great! Highly recommend Takoba.

Really trendy, cute patio area. I went during lunch-- my tacos de verduras were DELICIOUS but I was a little disappointed that we had to ask for chips and salsa as we waited for our food (not sure if they're complimentary?) and there were a few flies flying around inside. But I'd definitely go again just for the tacos.
