Chips good--thin, delivered warm. Salsa good. Noticed on menu that first basket of chips+salsa is free, then it's $1.50 per thereafter. Yuk. Not only is this cheap, it discriminates against larger tables. I have heard rumblings of this phenomenon on Chowhound, but this is my first encounter with chips that are not gratis.
Enchilada plate looks like most of the others I've tried around Austin--sloppy presentation with tons of cheese and sauce etc all glopped on the plate forming one nebulous Tex-Mex mass. It started out tasting pretty good, while the plate was still atomic hot, in spite of the gloppiness of it. But as the plate cooled, the flavor waned, and puddles of grease began forming among the mass of cheese and sauce and rice and beans. It went downhill surprisingly fast.
Sauce not bad really, onions good, rice boring, beans boring. Overall impression: too glop.
I was on track for a "Not Bad" rating at first, but the plate lost its appeal quickly as it cooled. That, plus the tacaño chip policy, plus the dingy and charm-free interior knock EyM down to a "Ho Hum" for me.
