Covid precautions were not taken seriously here.
The tables on the patio were not spaced AT ALL.
It was not a safe environment.
The food is pretty good and I like the patio but I specifically went for happy hour and their website said happy hour until 7 PM. The waitress handed me a happy hour menu when I arrived at 6:10. Apparently the happy hour only went till 6 PM though. I guess they just change things around and neglected to update that on their website. Very disappointed since I went out for happy hour and the bill was doubled what it should have been.
The service was very slow. Prices were a little high for what we got. Service was not great.
Great food and ambiance!
Marisol was AMAZING and such a great addition to our event. Great food and great outdoor seating! Make a reservation so you grab a seat!!!
You go to Cyclones for their house margs. Food is decent, but their margs are great.
Friendly and attentive staff. Only complaint was that it was too hot, even inside.
We had a great time, the food was great an our waiter was lovely. Best mimosa deal in town and a great spot for Sunday Funday!
All of my previous trips to Cyclones have been awesome. But this time it was hot in the restaurant for some reason. And sweating indoors isn't an ideal experience for me, on a Saturday date night. But the food was great and the service was excellent as usual.
This is a cute place surrounded with a lot of music and people. The food on the other hand was just okay but definitely not worth the price. If I return, I’ll only come for a few drinks with friends, not the food.
Great Margaritas! Waitress recommended great food!
Everything was amazing .. only issue was the social distancing we definitely did not see every other table.. the restaurant was packed
It was quick and easy to get a seat and eat.
Awesome experience, definitely coming back!! Great spot to eat and have some drinks.
Music was great and the margaritas are delicious!
Great service, great food, great ambiance. Our family had a wonderful time.
Super busy on weekends but great service was not sacrificed because of it!! Amazing place to bring visitors to Austin for bottomless mimosas!!
This service was so slow it took 15 - 20 minutes to get service. Once we got service and they took our dinner order my taco and chalupa was to soggy.
Very disapppointed in there Covid 19 efforts. Might try again when this is over. They were touching the water glass with the refill pitcher. Waitress was picking up glasses to refill with same gloves she just used at another table. Tables were very close together.
bad service on this day went back another day someone must of had a talk with the staff way better svc we are regular customers of this place sometimes people need a check up from the neck up
We were immediately seated, the waitress was friendly. We didn't order food, just drinks which were very good, a little pricey, but enjoyed the enviroment.
As soon as we were seated we were told we have to leave in 90 minutes. We were told why which was really weird. It was extremely hot in the restaurant and no air-conditioning. We had the fajitas and was told that we could share. It definitely wasn’t enough for two. It was very Disappointing.
Love Cyclone Anaya’s! Great atmosphere, jumbo margaritas and the food is amazing! The patio is always super fun!
Love the service and continue coming for the atmosphere and vibe!
The patio is very crowded considering the pandemic.
Great food and great service. The one thing is that the music was WAY too loud. We don’t mind loud music but this was deafening, way too much. Everything else was excellent.
Ceviche was not that fresh. Music was too loud - you can barely hear conversation.
Great service! Loud music though.
Delicious food and drinks, and great service!
The food was ok and the drinks seem to have lost some taste or alcohol. Also wasn’t sure if the air conditioning was not working but it was so hot inside. I inquired but wasn’t told why it was hot. It was college outside. Not sure I’ll return as there are other places with better food and drinks.
Great location and fair prices.
The queso wasn’t very good.
The draft beer wasn’t very cold either.
Our server was nice and treated us well.
The frozen margaritas took forever to reach the table and one was almost halfway melted.
The music outside was the volume of a dance club, there were not many people there. We had to almost yell to hear each other
Definitely was the best like normal and margaritas are off the chain ! Parents first time and they loved it and thought it was outstanding!
I came because it was national tequila day, when attempting to order a jumbo margarita . I was advised they weren’t serving the Jumbo , just their smaller portion. I already drive 30+ miles to get there. So, I stayed and the drink tasted horrible.
Why in the middle of July does this restaurant have flamed heaters on inside the restaurant??? No one wants to eat dinner in a sauana!
I used to enjoy Cyclone Anaya's, sadly over the past 3 visits it has slipped to a place where it is truly inedible. On the past 3 visits (I live across the street), I have sent my drink back all three times and literally couldn't eat the food. OVER THIS PLACE - epic fail.
It was a good experience.
We sat inside but it was still very hot.
Such great service and awesome vibes
The waitress was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food was quick and excellent with great portion sizes and the price was very reasonable for the quality.
