The restaurant is a bit tight inside which lead us to understand why a reservation was hard to come by. There is just one row of tables facing the street and a wall. The noise was such that we had trouble hearing each other across the rather wide table, and with a loud neighbor. The food however was excellent so we focussed on eating. The white wine, a bottle of Muscadet, arrived not cold enough so we asked for an ice bucket which took care of that problem after a bit. There are tables outside as well but the location directly on 6th Street makes for noise of cars streaming by. This is a typical American problem.

ATX Cocina experiments with the boundaries of Mexican cuisine. We have taken traditional Mexican dishes and elevated them with modern approaches and techniques. Corn, the basis of the Mexican cuisine for thousands of years, is also the foundation of our kitchen. We nixtamalize and process our masa in house sourcing it from heirloom varieties of corn grown by small family farms in Mexico.

The first time my husband and I came to Jacoby’s was 2 years ago during our honeymoon in Austin. We had a great time the first time we came. Fast forward 2 years later, we moved to Austin 3 months ago and this was our first time back at Jacoby’s. We had the 16 oz. ribeye special which was cooked to perfection (very tender and seasoned well) and the delicious meatloaf. We had great service from Claire and the ambience was chill!
