Put something else in your mouth.
Ask a local about the best Tex-Mex in town and they probably won’t send you here but that’s only because they want to keep it a secret. This joint’s been serving up the finest margaritas and tacos you’ll find on this side of the border since 1952.
A big taste of Texas that comes at a big price, but like the saying goes, everything’s bigger here. Reservations at this four-diamond award winning restaurant are a must, but it’s worth the wait.
So famous they bottle the sauce, Stubb’s is part BBQ , part live music joint. It’s not to be missed and the Gospel Brunch on Sunday will make you believe.
This is how Austin does diner food. Breakfast is served 24 hours a day at the two locations—the perfect gluttonous response to a crazy night on the town.
Dive bar and burger joint combined, the clientele tends to be more colorful. But that’s why you’re in Austin. Just keep expectations low and it’s fine.
For decent Tex Mex, this bustling restaurant might be your place. A fancy meal it’s not, but margaritas and tequila makes everything better. For a while.
Part café, gallery, and lounge, go there to read or pretend to read while you people-watch. Try the coffee-infused cocktails to mix your uppers and downers.
At this local institution, some people come just for the drinks (especially the margaritas) and live music, and end up with Mexican food, and some vice versa.
If you think chains are for the bedroom, not for your coffee, welcome. It’s the friendly “place for boots, suits, hippies and techies” to meet and relax.
So friendly, so delicious, it’s worth the 30-minute drive to Lockhart. Prepare for tender fall-off-the-bone BBQ and sauce that makes vegetables run and hide.
