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.

This is a place that I will definitely come back to when I visit Austin again. The food was phenomenal, our server Taylor was so great. She was friendly and she did a great job. I had the Pollo Asado, and let me tell you that was the best chicken I've ever had. The drinks are also very good.

Just an outstanding meal-salmon was excellent

Guacamole and chips incredible

Even the brussel sprouts which my partner ordered was surprisingly good-would order again, and I thought I could never like brussel sprouts

My friend and I made a reservation here last night and service (while understandably busy) was incredibly slow. Our server was cold, not engaging and it was difficult to connect to him as someone we felt comfortable asking for additional silverware, last minute orders, or even extra napkins. We felt burdensome, eventhough our drinks took 30 min to be delivered and our appetizers took an additional 45 min.

The atmosphere at ATX Cocina is great (great building, ample seating outdoors and indoors), and managers seem to have great customer service and tableside charm/etiquette, but I think the servers may be worn out? I hope it's the case, other wise they should consider vetting more friendly staff.

Everything our group had from here was delicious. Cocktails, apps, entrees, and service, all knocked it out of the park. Only complaint would be the room which we were seated. Sort of way out of the way with no ambiance.

Oh man. Get the short ribs. Incredibly good. Awesome drink menu too. Also the entire kitchen is gluten free so it is safe to bring friends who have Celiacs.

I’ve heard about this place through “IG bloggers” and I honestly expected way more. I’m from Chicago and I feel like this place is extremely overpriced and the food was underwhelming. The staff is not friendly...the food was OK. The crab tostadas and house margaritas were good. 7/10 IMO 🤷🏻‍♀️

Server recommended carne asada and it was so, so good. The food was fresh and very flavorful, but just slightly over salted. I will return, especially prior to events downtown.

The food is delicious but so overpriced that I probably won't return. I've watched their menu evolve over a few years so that entrees are now $44+.

Service was terrible. Took 1.5 hours from the time we placed our order for our food to arrive - no apology or acknowledgement at all from the waitress. This used to be our favorite place for Mexican. Now hesitant to go back.

We love it there, esp their patio! It was slightly slow having someone come take our order but overall great. I would love to see a couple veggie options on the HH menu - like the brussels and broccoli. Love their spicy margarita! Great spot! The salad option is amazing and one of the best salads!!

My waiter spilled 4 alcoholic beverages all over me. My shirt was soaked and so was my entire head/ face. I was blinded by the alcohol for about a minute or two. Waiter apologized. Manager came by way after it happened and just apologized. Didn’t offer anything or asked if I was okay.
