    They did not honor my reservation. No apologies, just we’re closed for a private event - at a time when every other restaurant was full.

    Disappointing. Service was good and food was as no better than mediocre. Many better places in Austin for Tex Mex.

    Wonderful experience. The service was amazing, and the variety of options was impressive. Not your typical tacos for sure!

    We ate at the Austin Taco Project because we were at a conference across the street and also staying at the hotel. I ordered the roasted broccoli quesadilla. It was so good! We let the waitress know we were on a time crunch and she started working on our tickets as soon as our food was delivered. We were in and out in 45 minutes. We all wished we were served chips and salsa when we were seated, but overall the entire experience was fantastic.

    Very good tacos and burritos presented nicely, but wanted a little more “pop” of flavor. Izzi was wonderful and provided excellent service. Great draft beer list.

    We always enjoy our experience at the Austin Taco Project. We were greeted warmly by Sam , hostess and Erika does a fabulous job keeping the breakfast buffet fresh and stocked. Mark provided attentive service.
