The Maxican is one of our favorite restaurants. The menu selections are all outstanding. I am partial to the Angels on Horseback and the Baby Back Ribs (The Perfect Combination, indeed). My wife loves Max's Chile Relleno. The food is consistently excellent, and the service...More

Have been recovering from surgery and did not feel up to a drive into Austin for my ATF Ted-mex. Friends had spoke of a good Mexican restaurant in Burnet. They were right. The salsa is mild but heat can be added if desired. Terrific smokey...More
