Food was pretty good, but I don't feel it is authentic as some other places. Service was good, and dining are was very clean, but I have had better. Just my personal taste.

Visiting the area for the weekend and was positive I wouldn't be able to find "Austin quality" Mexican food and margaritas. Well, I was wrong! Go to Luna if you appreciate great salsa, sauces and fantastic margaritas. Tell Alex Terri sent ya.
