    They aren’t kidding about the queso, it’s AmAzing!! The chips were a bit greasy though. :( I pretty much wanted to drink the queso. I got it plain no meat.
    Ordered lobster & shrimp quesadillas. They ate fabulous but dude of beans needed salt. The rice was a bit hard but okay. Would forgive the bad for the delicious quesadillas.
    Bartender was pretty and very nice! (No I’m not gay, just sayin…)
    The house frozen margarita looked prettier than it actually was.
    Great looking patio, but sat at bar cuz very humid outside.
    Will come back!

    They were very. Friendly. Hunny loved the queso beans and rice . Me i found tge lobster quesidillas too overpowering but the hubby thought they were okay. Nice of them to offer to take off the check but not necessary. Gave us free queso for checking in. Wish i was a tex mex fan . Love misters on patio and the huge oak tree on porch. It would be great for groups. Manager personally bought out cheese quesilidas. Got a personal tour of the bldg,

    This place is everything you’d want in a Tex Mex restaurant. There are currently 12,000 Mexican restaurants in Austin so it’s hard for any one of them to stand out.

    But you can’t go wrong with Pelon’s.

    Margaritas are great. Not the sickly sweet type you usually get. Guacamole is very fresh.

    Staff us incredibly friendly and they really try hard. If you are Northeast of downtown, I highly recommend it.

    The bf and I decided to try this place for brunch this past Sunday.Our server was friendly and attentive.We say on the patio.

    The $2 mimosas and $3 margaritas were good.Margaritas were a bit on the sweet side.We didn’t try the build your own Bloody Mary bar but we will next time!

    I had migas and he had breakfast burritos.Both were very good and super reasonably priced.Good sized portions.The green salsa they give you is really good.

    Overall a great experience and we can’t wait to try Pelons for dinner.

    This is my husband’s and my favorite lunch spot. The food is consistently good and the servers are attentive without being annoying.

    I love their salsas!

    The decor is adorable. On the rare occasions when we have had dinner here the tequila selection has been great, not extensive, but of great quality.

    Give them a try, I think you’ll enjoy Pelons.

    Coming from Philly this place was amazing, and Samantha our waitress was one in a million, so sweet and funny! Since we were from out of town she gave us great suggestions on where to go, but may end up coming back for brunch because the food and service was so great. Best Tex Mex I could have asked for, highly recommended.
