We had a brunch for 15 planned for
no good reason, which is exactly the best reason. They had the table waiting and our waitress was ready when we arrived. She was very attentive and kept up with new arrivals to ensure everyone had their drinks promptly. Our food was all looked and tasted delicious, and the portions were perfect. I will be happy to brunch here again, and I can't wait to try it for other meals."

We were a large party and the
service was still fast and helpful, the food was great, like usual."

While the food was delicious, we
were seated next to a window where the flies were way to distracting due to the sheer numbers of them. There were several fly traps in the window but they were full. We might as well have eaten outside. Our waiter was distant and whenever I asked him a question, he would answer as he was running away from our table. "

I'm not sure what happened. Wife
and I have been coming here since it first opened (the original time) - staff used to be upbeat and friendly and food was fresh and hot. Friday night it seemed like they were doing us a favor. Two tables that were seated after us had their chips and drinks before anyone even greeted us. Food came out quickly as expected as far as timing but 3 of the four plates looked as it they had been sitting under the heat lamps for some time. El Chile is typically where we take out-of-towners for tex-mex with a different twist but I'm not sure it will be that place for us anymore."

Had a great dinner at El Chile on
Manor Rd., as usual! Staff are fun and friendly, service is prompt. Food is exceptional. Love the Sangria! Go now!"

We were pleasantly surprised. The
food and drink were very good. We sat outside on their front porch, which was pleasant although there's a fair amount of street noise as it's very close to Manor Rd. The plastic chairs are not very comfortable, but the restaurant thoughtfully provides woven blankets that you can use as a back rest which helped a lot. The wait staff was very attentive and pleasant, but the kitchen was a little slow with our order. We had one of the fancy nacho dishes and a rainbow trout special, and both were very good."

An out of town friend came to
visit and I brought her to El Chile Manor. I am so glad I did! We had a fantastic server who gave great suggestions and really tailored her recommendations to an out of town visitor. "

We went to the restaurant on the
recommendation of my brother in law who says the margaritas are the best in Austin. We had our Easter dinner there on Saturday. It was very good food and a good time was held by all. The margaritas are indeed very good. "

The noise level was so loud that
it was hard to hear my date. Also, the space is so small the waitress and waiters would almost run into us."

We travel to Austin 2-3 times a
year, and always have at least one meal at El Chile each trip. I love their ceviche; my wife has sampled much of the menu and enjoyed everything she has tried. In terms of drinks, they make very good Micheladas and specialty margaritas."

Our party of four had dinner and
ordered Parilla de Fajitas (2), Camarones al la Plancha, and the Downtown Charlie's Special. We had eaten at El Chile's before but were sorely disappointed on the lack of flavor, due to lack of adequate seasoning on the chicken and beef ingredients. Furthermore, the dishes were sparse on chicken and beef and were piled high with "filler" chopped lettuce, tomatoes, etc. Therefore, we felt that we did not get our money's worth from the items ordered from the menu."

Austin has lots of Mexican,
Tex-Mex restaurants. El Chile, returned to Manor Road, can't compete with the more modestly priced and simpler Chango's or El Chilito. The food is too cheesy (literally) and not really good. (I had the tamal Oaxacana.) The helpings are generous. The staff is sweet. We were there opn a Friday night and lots of margaritas and bottles of beer were flying around. The margaritas were weak and undistinguished. We sat outside, which was fine unless the bus was going by, but that is out of the restaurant's control. Inside was quite loud and crowded. It wasn't a special or celebratory experience. Loud frat boys in back of us. All in all, I won't be going back."
