Contemporary Mexican
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.

Best margaritas in town... but also some of the best food! The servers are super knowledgeable and give excellent recommendations. It's the perfect spot for an upscale date night and I can't wait to get back.

Hosts should not be rude, but welcoming. Waits and unfortunate information can be relayed in a polite and friendly manner.

Food was amazing as usual. This was the first time we brought our kids and they loved it as well. They are not terribly adventurous eaters but there were enough options that we didn’t need to ask for anything special

It was a great place with excellent service but not a place to spend for a romantic evening.

The food was creative and terrific--most notably the Brussels sprouts. The bottle beer selection is limited and the menu doesn't note that draft beers are available. The table service was great, though the greeting and help at the door was poor.

This place was great! Went for my husband’s 40th birthday while visiting Austin for the first time. Complimentary champagne and a birthday card from the staff. Amazing service and food! Also very vegetarian friendly and run a completely gluten free kitchen.

We absolutely loved ATX Cocina! Our server, Katie, was a gem and took great care of us. Loved the guacamole, margaritas, and the quesadillas on the appetizer section were amazing! Loved everything about it!

We were Austin to celebrate our anniversary for a few days without set plans. I was only able to get 8:00 patio setting but it turned out to be a plus! The interior was quite loud but there was a good social vibe. We were seated on the beautifully lit deck and greeted with a champagne toast and an anniversary card signed by the staff! The cocktails and food were perfect and the staff were attentive and warm. Our waitress Katie was delightful!
So happy to recommend ATX Cocina to our hotel concierge as a must try local spot.

The food and ambiance was perfect. We sat at the patio, and even when it was a little hot the fan and trees made a great place to be outside.

Some of the better and most inventive Tex-mex I have ever had. If you like a good spicy margarita, get the ATX, but have them make the spicy version. Would come back just for that.

First seating option outdoors was directly next to two huge fans making it impossible to do anything. We were moved after asking. The dinner order was confused and as such one meal came to the table 15min after the other three.

Not on the recommendation list.

The service was great. Sitting outside was beautiful, just a little loud with the highway right next to it. Just don’t order the chorizo. It was super greasy cheese with super greasy meat on top. Just not comparable to all of the rest of the delicious food and cocktails.

Our food took an hour and a half once ordered to be served and they were busy but not that busy. We were never approached by anyone saying sorry for the wait or to reassure us our order was submitted.

Service was entirely horrible & the management did nothing about it. Multiple tables complaining about the waitress and how rude she was. I’ll never eat here again and I think she cause several other tables to want to never eat here again either.

Only low point was that our salad was drenched in dressing. Really inedible. When we mentioned it we only got an apology and not another salad... otherwise, everything was great. I'll be sure to ask for light dressing next time.

The food was wonderful. The waiter was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

We were seated on the other side of the curtain near the bar. Make no mistake, it was LOUD where we were. My wife sat next to me rather than across so we could hear each other.
