    Great Food, Cheap Margaritas and ABBA

    Came here by myself on a lark after reading the only review on here about a hip, gay-friendly Tex-Mex place in Austin. My partner had abandoned me to have dinner with professional colleagues, and I had a hankering for Tex-Mex, so I tried Santa Rita. Had a great time: good food, cheap margaritas, cool crowd and a great waiter. Had the chicken combo plate, and they brought the taco out first, and then the enchilada, perfect because I was hungry. My waiter was intelligent and engaging--we had a great conversation too, given the fact that I was alone that night. This is a great people watching place that seems very gay-friendly without being gay-ghettoized. And the blond bombshell of a of a hard-driving, whip-cracking dominatrix restaurant manager in all black sporting a pony tail was a sight to behold! Who can fault a restaurant that serves good food, has cheap margaritas, and plays tawdry 70's hits as music--Abba's Dancing Queen and ELO's Sweet Talking Woman among them. Had a great time and will definitely go back next time I am in town.
