The food was great, the nearly 90 minute wait to get the food was disappointing to say the least. We had a reservation for 7:30 and got our food at just before 9:00 when they started packing up the place around us. The owner was accommodating and open to our feedback but only after we’d been aggressively snapped at by one of his staff for asking about the delays. Overall a disappointing night but I would give them another go based on the food. Hope next time service issues don’t ruin the experience.
We waited nearly an hour for food and the food came out cold.
It would have been nice to be told the wait time to eat and to be brought entrees out while waiting for main meals.
There was nearly no customer service, workers were sitting directly infront of us scratching there stomach watching the Olympics…….
It had potential to be a great night but I feel the money we paid was ridiculously high for the service and food we received.
The staff were lovely, however the food was very disappointing for the price. Though it came out quick, all of the tables food was cold, and lacked flavour. Also $14 for a frozen Margherita is a bit steep when it is served in a takeaway coffee cup.
The live music was a nice touch.
Waited over an hour and a quarter for cold food, that had absolutely no taste. Waiters were not apologetic or helpful. Terrible experience.
If you like American BBQ this is the place for you !! 4 of us enjoyed a great evening at South Austin the food and drinks were fantastic and the general service was very good. During winter sitting inside is recommended. Overall a great experience!
Service was lovely. Food portions were good. The cauliflower tacos and the fish tacos were really nice, but the others were lacking in flavour. Music was way too loud.
If I could give it 6/5 stars I would. Great food and above and beyond service. Been wanting to try a Birria Taco for ages and it was well worth the wait.
Instagram account hypes up that the food is amazing, and looks like a nice environment.
In essence, a let down. Average size food, slightly overpriced. Extremely flimsy tables and seating (outdoors at night is freezing and they only had one heater for 10 tables). Would not recommend, not authentic Mexican food and staff seemed less than interested, will not be back and also heard other customers saying the same.
Please keep the fish tacos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Food was so damn delicious! Well done guys!
Great food - simple selection but all so tasty. Terrific service
Food and drinks were outstanding. Service was great. Live music was beautiful and everything came out extremely fast.
Great food, music and service. Will definitely be back!
Tables were crammed together and you basically felt like you were sitting with the table next to you. They had live music but it was far too loud you could not hold a conversation. The food was ok, a little bland.
We went to this place because of all the recommendations we’d heard but the food was cold! We ordered the lamb tacos and the wrap and the meat were ice cold! The birria tacos were okay but very sickly and not very flavourful. Would not recommend.
Food was delicious! Staff were all so lovely and helpful. Music was a little too loud, couldn’t hear myself talk but other than that it was great
Simple menu but effective. Delicious tacos: beef, pork, fish, vegetarian. Attentive waiters. It was a lovely date night!
Delicious food and a great vibe. Very enjoyable.
1.5 hours for 4 tacos and watered down premix margaritas
Fantastic food and great environment. Always expect a great feast from the Mafia team!
Smart business tactic selling trendy Mexican food out of a day time cafe by the road . I could look past the dining experience sitting in rickety tables. Birria is one of the most hyped foods out there and my friend and I were waiting for an opportunity to try it and were disappointed to say the least. Severely overpriced for two tacos that had little flavour. The food looked so promising. The consume was so deceiving, it looked so dark and flavourful and tasted like unseasoned meat and tomato juice. Was soo so bland. Y’all need to season your meat, some parts were bland af. Have you guys even tasted your food? Your product did not match the scenery and environment. Music was good but does an acoustic guitarist really belong at a hype food restaurant?
a lazy Saturday night on a long weekend.. Venturing across town for a meal at this Pop Up. Great food, great vibe, chilled service... Thanks for a great night. Birra taco was the bomb!
Food and service was amazing. The short rib was my favourite. Will definitely be back in the near future
Food and service was great. Enjoyed!
SouthAustin is a fun, easy and casual street carnivale venue. Food is yummy and frozen margaritas in plastic cups. Inexpensive too!
Food was great.
Went with friends. The tables were extremely crammed and I was touching backs with the table behind. The food came quite quick and was reasonably priced but the service staff seemed overwhelmed. Ordered an Espresso Martini as per online menu and were told that they take too long to make so were not doing them. Bar server came across as rude.
Food was good but found it overpriced for the amount of food, didn’t expect to spend $80 for two people
They only had two flavours of frozen margaritas also, would’ve been nice to have a classic style one
The food was excellent, the music made it impossible to have a conversation
We waited an hour for our food and it came out cold.
Great atmosphere, super friendly staff and delicious food - I will be back for sure!
Birria taco’s are amazing here!
The food was amazing about time Mexican food was like it is in America !
Was raining a bad Covid but the owner went out of his way to make us comfy and moved us out of the rain. Service was good :) I will definitely be back
The fantastic Texas Style BBQ in a Mexican Dishes are an amazing fusion excellently executed. I would recommend South Austin to anyone who visits Brisbane.
Birra tacos are a must try! Definitely recommend booking as it gets super busy but that’s always a good sign!
What a fantastic place.
Great food, great vibe and food to die for.
My partner is from Texas and said this is the closest restaurant to the real tex mex available in the USA.
Will be back for sure.
delicious tacos and amazing service!!!
Great food! Such a hidden gem
Really lovely service and friendly staff. Food was delicious. Only reason I gave food 4 stars and not 5 was because the broth was a bit watery and I didn’t think it added to the overall meal.
So disappointed in the food. Have been following the posts for ages and was so looking forward to some great food. Meat was ‘stewed’ and tasteless. Neither anything like Austin, Texas nor mexican. ‘Entertainment was also pretty aweful, and not at all inkeeping with the intended flavour of the restaurant. Loved the open air seating and the server was great, but the food ... unfortunately no even close to the hype. I hope that changes because serving sizes were fine, and we desperately need good tex mex in Brisbane. This just ain’t even close ... yet
