First timers, and we had an awesome time - the music and food was GREAT! I had fish tacos, my husband had the carnitas (got a taste, mmmm good!). It was a perfect night for having supper out doors. Wasn't able to use up all 3 Groupons, but at Senor Buddy's your Groupon doesn't expire - it says that on the Groupon, I can still use at face value ($10).

This is the first time we tried Senor Buddy's. The tables were outside, and the mosquitos "ate us up"! We had to eat our food very fast so we could get away from them. Also, for the higher price compared to other Mexican Restaurants, the serving size we felt was on the small side. Also, the water that was served tasted like it had chemicals in it -- we had to go to the bar and ask for different glasses of water. Not sure if we want to go again?

The food was decent, but the staff was VERY unfriendly & border line rude. No one even spoke to us until the waitress showed up to take our drink orders. We might give them another shot because the food was decent, but the dining experience was terrible. They make you park way around the back but the gates weren't open yet, so we had to walk all the way around to the front, then they wouldn't even let us walk through the doors to go to the dining area, they made us walk around to the side. They didn't even apologize for the inconvenience because as I said, no one even spoke to us except for the waitress. The guy that gave us our menu didn't even say hello.

Great food. Nice outdoor venue with a dance floor. Quick service. 20 beers, some local microbrews. Michoacan pork excellent.

Food is terrific and the atmosphere is extremely family friendly - even the band playing welcomed the kids dancing all over the place!

From Our Editors

From the exterior, it doesn't look as if much has changed about Buddy's Convenience Store, a 30-year-old stalwart of supplies and Texaco gas. The shop still sports its modest, ranch-style frame and functioning pumps, but inside it's another story. Jorge and Julie Garcia, scions of the family that spawned Curra's Grill Restaurant in South Austin, purchased the old filling station and slowly transformed it into a bastion of fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine called Señor Buddy's.

Now, in addition to the fuel that still flows from the pumps, 20 foam-flecked taps gush with draft beers to accompany a full menu of seafood enchiladas, breakfast tacos, tender cuts of pork and steak, and Curra's exclusive Oaxacan coffee. Out back, majestic trees cast cool shadows and misguided fishing lines over an expansive outdoor patio, where patrons can enjoy the soothing sounds of live music every Friday and Saturday beneath strings of twinkling lights.
