An Eater’s Guide to Austin

This ever-growing city of Austin is the epicenter of oak-smoked barbecue and the greasy foothold of Tex-Mex fare. There are just so many restaurants and food trucks taking advantage of the surprisingly abundant bounty the hot climate provides. This guide cuts through all the noise out there, delivering you straight to the heart of an incredibly exciting dining and drinking scene in the heart of Texas.


It's no secret that Austin strives to keep things weird, and this sentiment extends to its culinary scene. The ample selection of excellent Tex-Mex and barbecue is a given at this point. But not everyone knows that this is the city where everyone tests out ideas with food trucks, which pop up every which way to see what dishes really stick enough to expand with their own physical restaurants. The city also takes pride in sourcing locally, despite the heat and levels of drought Central Texas often faces. It all fuses together to create that specific oh-so-very Austin brand of eating and drinking.

Currently, as COVID-19 cases increase in Travis County, Austin Public Health urges unvaccinated and high-risk people to wear masks while indoors, which includes restaurants and bars (people are allowed to take their masks off while seated for eating and drinking purposes). The local health department also urges all eligible people to get vaccinated as soon as possible. As with all businesses, be sure to call ahead to make sure each place is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things do change.

For a quick Austin food snapshot, don't miss Franklin Barbecue's perfectly tender brisket, the mighty migas taco from Veracruz All Natural’s food trucks, cauliflower tater tots and the ideal queso from Better Half, the craveable gelato from Dolce Neve, and surprisingly amazing ramen from Ramen Tatsu-ya.

Eater puts out a lot of maps, updating them regularly to guide the hungry and curious. There are the basics, like brunch, cocktails, and coffee, alongside other necessities, like pizza, burgers, patios, and much more. Looking for faster answers? We’ve highlighted several top points from the most popular and crucial maps to save time.

Hot Restaurants: The city’s hottest dining destination is Con Todo, where chef Joseph Gomez highlights Rio Grande Valley food through his new food truck in North Austin, parked at Celis Brewery’s new beer garden. Dig into the tacos con todo (cilantro, onions, salsa) such as chorizo with potatoes, barbacoa, and pollo asado.

Essential Restaurants: Staying in the outside-of-Austin-Texas theme, North Loop casual restaurant JewBoy Burgers showcases the upbringing of El Paso native Mo Pittle in the form of unkosher burgers smothered with hatch green chiles and layered with latkes.

Bars: The best bar for everyday drinking for any taste is Central East Austin bar Nickel City, where one can find everything from excellent cocktails to fun tiki drinks to beer and shots. Natural wine seekers should head to East Austin bar and retail shop LoLo.

Barbecue: Along with Franklin Barbecue (obviously), partake in the city’s other two best offerings: LeAnn Mueller-owned La Barbecue and Kerlin BBQ, the latter of which boasts both barbecue and klobasniky (savory kolaches).

Breakfast Tacos: For the ultimate egg-filled tortillas, you can’t go wrong with Veracruz All Natural’s options. Otherwise, head to the no-frills truck El Primo on South First (bonus: you can place onlineorders for both).

Tacos: Everybody loves tacos and Austin is inundated with such excellent choices. The Mexico City-style offerings of Central East Austin truck Cuantos Tacos are a must.

Birria Tacos: The red taco craze is still strong in the city, and your best bet for quesabirria tacos is Southeast Austin truck La Tunita 512.

Food Trucks: In a city brimming with food trucks and trailers, look out for the spicy fare from Thai truck Dee Dee and exquisite pasta from Italian truckPatrizi’s.

Margaritas: The tequila cocktail is so very prevalent, and downtown Mexican restaurant La Condesa’s margaritas aren’t to be missed, mixed with fresh pineapple juice.

Beer: Beer lovers should head to the longtime brewery Live Oak’s sprawling home in Del Valle. For those in the South Austin area, Meanwhile Brewing has become a perfect beer destination.

If you’re an out-of-towner visiting Austin:scope out these maps and guides, curated just for you.

It's easy to split Austin into three regional parts: North Austin, Central Austin, and South Austin. But those sections comprise separate neighborhoods — each with its own identity. The following are the areas of the city food lovers should get to know very well, complete with plenty of recommendations.

East Side

On the other side of Highway 35, East Austin has changed over the years as the center of rapid gentrification. Developments led to a slew of newer restaurants right next door to older establishments. Go back in time with a simple plate of migas and biscuits from Cisco’s, a Tex-Mex greasy spoon full of political history. For caffeine, dip down to East Fifth for stellar cafe Wright Bros. Brew & Brew. From the multitude of food trucks in the area, the not-that-far trek to East Cesar Chavez for one of the city’s best and affordable taco trucks Las Trancas (opt for one of the offal ones). Or if you want drinks, head to Whisler’s for thoughtful cocktails or natural wine bar LoLo’s for its well-curated list. End the evening at dive bar White Horse, full of two-steppin' and cheap beer.

South Lamar

The laid-back vibe of Austin lives on across the Colorado River within the South Austin area. Go straight for the area’s main artery South Lamar Boulevard. Here, you can wake up in the morning with well-made lattes and pastries from Patika. Book dinner at Odd Duck, brimming with local ingredients and bread. New-school sushi might seem surprising for such a landlocked city, but you’d be wrong to write Uchi off. Take advantage of the great deals found during the sushi restaurant’s sake social hour. Line up at Ramen Tatsu-ya for restorative noodle soup in a fun space. Those seeking thoughtful wines paired with excellent dishes should seek out Aviary. Under-the-radar barbecue truck Brown’s Bar-B-Que is worth a stop for stellar smoked meats. Night owls can take a spin through P. Terry’s drive-thru for solid burgers.

Downtown

As hotels, high-rises, and office buildings go up, restaurants and bars continue to open in the center of the city, feeding the growing crowds of locals and tourists gaping at the Texas State Capitol or waiting for the bats to emerge. Coffee fans should hit up Houndstooth, where the baristas care deeply about every cup poured. A Top Chef fan? Check out the Line Austin Hotel’s flagship restaurant Arlo Grey, from Season 10 winner Kristen Kish. Brave the Dirty Sixth hoards to find your way into hidden-within-a-parking-garage bar Small Victory. Dance the rest of the night away at LGBTQ patio barCheer Up Charlie’s.

Cherrywood

For a break from the tourist-heavy neighborhoods in Austin, check out Cherrywood, northeast of downtown. It’s home to some excellent casual restaurants like Hoover’s — the place to go for down-home Southern fare like chicken fried steak and pie — and Patrizi’s, a trailer with fresh pasta in an open-air bar (look out for the residential cats). Fans of farm-to-table dining must check out Dai Due — chef Jesse Griffiths runs his own hunting and butchering classes. And for a complete night out in one building, head to Mi Madre’s for excellent tacos and Mexican fare before going upstairs to Techo Mezcaleria & Agave Bar for an agave flight.


Bowl of Texas red:

Real Texas chili, no beans at all.

Burnt ends:

The crispy bark from the often-fattiest portions of brisket.

Chicken-fried steak:

Beef steak that is pan-fried like fried chicken. Usually doused in white-pepper gravy.

Kolache and klobasniky:

The first are pastries filled with sweet cheese and fruit, and the latter is a savory pastry filled with meat.

Migas:

A mix of eggs, fried tortillas, and cheese, with optional vegetables, served on a plate, with tortillas or in taco form.

Mexican martini:

A margarita served in a martini glass, with olives.

Robert J. Lerma/EATX

Queso:

Heavy, creamy cheese dip that is often made with low-grade cheese and served with chips. A Tex-Mex restaurant is often measured by the quality of its queso.

Rambler:

A highly popular sparkling water brand. It works well on its own, mixed in cocktails, or paired with coffee. It’s what many bars and restaurants turn to as their non-alcoholic beverage of choice since Topo Chico was purchased by Coca-Cola thereby making what had been Texas’s go-to sparkling mineral water far too expensive.

Bakery: Abby Jane Bakeshop

At Abby Jane Love’s eponymous new bakery in Dripping Springs, everything from her naturally leavened sourdough breads to the wood-fired “Roman-inspired” pizzas and superlative pastries—like the Queen “P,” a Texas twist on a kouign amann with sticky pecan caramel—are all made with flour that’s milled just a few yards away at Barton Springs Mill.

 

All the breads, pastries, and pizzas at Abby Jane Bakeshop are made from flour from on-site partner Barton Springs Mill. Photo courtesy Abby Jane Bakeshop.

 

Breakfast Taco: Tacos Guerrero

Known as “the abuelita in the orange taco truck,” owner Yolanda Guerrero has won over East Austinites with her infectious smile and spectacular breakfast tacos. The migas tacos (with still-crispy tortilla strips and a layer of refried beans) are some of the best you’ll find, especially when splashed with Guerrero’s roasted red molcajete salsa.

 

Burgers: Buddy’s Burger

The menu is short but sweet at this new family-owned joint on Cameron Road: single or double patty smash burgers made with perfectly caramelized, 100 percent Angus with an option to ramp up the heat (jalapeños and Buddy’s Spicy Smack Sauce). Alongside one of its Mexican vanilla milkshakes, it’ll test your restraint to not devour everything on the drive home. 

 

Coffee Shop:Try Hard Coffee Roasters

Where to even begin with this pitch-perfect East Side shop from veteran baristas Raechel Hurd, Gabrielle Rose, and Jon French? Maybe it’s the house-roasted beans that lead to an always-flawless cappuccino; their unforgettable empanada stuffed with biscuits and gravy; or Rose’s crackly “pillows,” puff pastries folded with fillings like cardamom cream. 

 

Collaborator: Nixta Taqueria

To keep things “playful”—as well as give back to community organizers—co-owners Sara Mardanbigi and Edgar Rico spent the last year collaborating with a number of peers on one-off specials like A5 wagyu birria tacos with La Tunita 512 during an anniversary week that featured four of the brightest taqueros in town. 

 

Culinary Trend: Birria

Birria arepas (Arepa Dealers), birria rolled into kimbap (Tejas Birria), and birria piled into cups of Tapatío ramen (Jamie’s Barbecue And Mini Tacos). What was once a taqueria rarity has grown into a full-on phenomenon, especially with taco trucks like La Tunita 512 concentrating on birria de res, a slow-braised brisket version that’s dipped and served with consommé.

 

Dim Sum: Qi

Chef Ling Qi Wu of Lin Asian Bar pushes her dim sum skills even further at a chic new downtown spot. Pull the lid off of a bamboo steamer, and you might find scallop shumai dotted with caviar or pot stickers weighted down with Akaushi beef. And for longtime fans of the chef, there’s no need to worry, as her famous Shanghai soup dumplings are available all day. 

 

Doughnuts: Lola’s Donuts

For three sweet days a week, Austin becomes a doughnut town, as Olivia O’Neal elevates a less-saccharine brioche base into a vehicle for praline bacon, strawberry cereal milk glaze, and other mouthwatering garnishes. 

 

Fries: R&B’s Steak and Fries

Brothers Arman and Kristan Elliott, along with childhood friend Viet Nguyen, take everything you love about a classic Philly cheesesteak—here, shaved Texas ribeye, Cheez Whiz, and a drizzle of melted American cheddar cheese—and pile it high on crinkle-cut fries. Be polite and use a fork, or just get elbow-deep. 

 

Hot Dogs: Red Rocket Wiener Wagon

Made with 12 different types of spices and topped with house-pickled kimchi and brisket chili, this red-hued side project from la Barbecue pitmasters LeAnn Mueller and Ali Clem is helping to fuel the surprising deluge of gourmet hot dogs seen around town.

Ice Cream: Gati

The secret is out, as chef Jam Sanitchat has broadened the scope of her coconut milk–based ice cream program inside Thai Fresh in Bouldin Creek to a star turn in its own East Austin shop. Dairy-free has never tasted so good with more than 40 rotating flavors featuring seasonal produce (Texas grapefruit, pandan leaf) and gluten-free baked goods swirled inside. 

 

Middle Eastern: Usta Kababgy

Yes, this North Lamar spot has solid standards such as hummus and shawarma. But what really makes it stand out is their excellent skewers, like the ground lamb and beef Iraqi kebabs that arrive tender and smoky from having spent time sizzling on a charcoal grill. The crisp, pizza-like flatbreads—including one loaded with za’atar and feta cheese—are also outstanding. 

 

New Brewery: Meanwhile Brewing

Portland, Oregon’s loss is our gain, as Will Jaquiss and Nao Ohdera of Breakside Brewing headed south to open their own brewery in Austin. Situated on a sprawling 3.7-acre campus, it features three food trucks and an extraordinary range of beers, including region-specific IPAs that go far beyond the hazy craze. 

 

Noodles: Julie’s Noodles

The thick and chewy Northern Chinese–style hand-pulled noodles here are the perfect complement for ingredients like tender slivers of lamb, tofu, wood ear mushrooms, and the variety of rich broths seen on their wide-ranging soup menu. For the full tingly mala experience, make sure to order a side of its homemade chili oil. 

 

Subs: Banger’s Sausage House

After displaying his talents with smoked and cured meats at places like Cochon in New Orleans, chef Thomas Maltz gets his opportunity to further showcase his pedigree on Banger’s new sandwich menu, which includes the city’s finest Italian hero, made with house-made coppa, bologna, and pistachio mortadella piled high on a Leidenheimer roll. 

 

Sushi: Uroko

Komé chef Takehiro Asazu and longtime Uchi vet Masazumi Saio pivoted to a takeout-only model last year that’s headlined by the greatest value in omakase: 12 pieces of nigiri, such as house-cured Norwegian mackerel lacquered in white truffle oil and Japanese hamachi brushed with wasabi butter, all for $45. 

 

Tex-Mex: Texsueño

Brandon Martin has always been a huge fan of Tex-Mex, but he thought the category was becoming “a bit stagnant,” so the former Odd Duck chef made it the focus of his first solo concept. Freshly nixtamalized corn tortillas serve as the basis of exquisite enchiladas and old-school crispy tacos stuffed with beef simmered in a braise of green chile pork fat, garlic, and onion. 

 

Wine Shop: Salt & Time Wine Shop

The term “natural wine” has become such a confusing catchall, so at this impeccably curated shop headed by Erika Widmann, they get granular: small-production, low-intervention wines made with native yeasts. European selections from importers like Jenny & François dominate the shelves, meaning you can’t go wrong with any bottle, at any price point. 

 

Wings: Hold Out Brewing

Brined for 24 hours minimum, baked, and then flash-fried, these always-crispy wings are further enhanced with chef Rich Reimbolt’s “gassed-up Frank’s RedHot” (Worcestershire, chili powder, and lots of butter) and an umami-rich ranch sauce laden with miso—an addition inspired by his time at powerhouse Asian restaurants like Uchiko andMomofuku in New York. 

 

Food Truck All-Stars

Pizza: Dough Boys

With his handlebar mustache, chef Tony Curet not only looks the part of a crack pizzaiolo, he backs it up with his smoky Neapolitan pies (all baked in a 900-degree brick oven) like the Italian Vato that’s draped with salami and Hatch green chiles. 

 

Plant-Based: Rogue Radish

Make no mistake, this isn’t the kind of food you’d get at a choose-your-own-adventure fast-casual chain or hippie co-op. Here, chef Max Snyder carefully jigsaws together daily veggie-forward inspirations that just-so-happen to take place in a bowl, like glazed sweet potatoes shrouded in broccoli leaf pesto and turmeric-spiced seeds. 

 

Queso: Valentina’s Tex Mex BBQ

Miguel Vidal says the key to his silky, never-gloppy queso is that it’s “hecho con amor.” What does that mean? Oh, just the pitmaster’s mesquite-smoked brisket, a dollop of fresh guac, and two types of salsa swimming in a pool of melted queso blanco. 

 

Tacos: Cuantos Tacos

People are powerless not to line up for Luis “Beto” Robledo’s superb Mexico City–style tacos on house-made corn tortillas, what with the Saturday-only al pastor, carved off the trompo along with roasted pineapple, and the off-menu campechana fragrant with anise and clove.

Thai: Talad

Pad Thai often gets a bad rap because of its sweet, one-note ubiquity. But not at this East Side food truck, where the wok-charred noodles are tossed in a medley of tangy, funky, fiery flavors. Also, leave room for the flaky roti served with a turmeric curry sauce. 

 

Socially Distanced Dining

Cocktail Kits: Small Victory

One of Austin’s most intimate bars, this clandestine speakeasy has been forced to completely shake up their model since the start of the pandemic. Fortunately, their curbside offerings are just as deft as their normal service, with a wide range of house-made mixers and classic to-go cocktails—each paired with a bag of appropriately shaped ice. 

 

DIY Dinner Kit: Korea House

This three-plus-decade staple on West Anderson Lane has upped their takeout game with chef EJ Kim’s budae-jjigae spread: A massive portion of four-day beef bone broth, sausage, kimchi, gochujang, tofu, sweet potato noodles, rice cakes, and an array of different banchan. At $29, it might be the biggest steal in town.

 

Most Creative Restaurant in a Crisis: Olamaie

From others in the restaurant industry, chef Michael Fojtasek kept hearing the same message: “Adapt or die.” So he did, transforming his highly decorated eatery into a laid-back biscuit shop. Not only did it save Olamaie, but the Little Ola’s Biscuits spinoff has now become its own concept in North Austin.

From coffee shops and ice cream to dim sum and queso, here’s where to go for anything dining-related in Austin.

 

Outdoor Getaway: Vista Brewing

It’s a breeze to maintain your personal space at Kent and Karen Killough’s 21-acre Driftwood brewery. Just choose a shady spot under a live oak, scan a QR code to order a charcuterie board, and prepare to be wowed by all of their terroir-driven farmhouse ales. 

 

Restaurant Patio: Kemuri Tatsu-ya

In addition to expanding his covered patio and further spacing out tables to a minimum of 6 feet, chef Tatsu Aikawa reassessed his menu, introducing three multi-course omakase services (vegetarian, pescatarian, and smoked meat–focused) that have helped cut down on food waste.

I lived in Austin, Texas, for 12 years. Here are all of the restaurants you should try when you are in the city.

  • Austin is the capital of Texas.
  • It's known for great food and their slogan "Keep Austin Wierd."
  • Through trial and error, I have figured out the best restaurants in Austin that you don't want to miss if you are in town.

Austin is becoming one of the most popular cities in the US with good reason; it has plenty to offer for anyone who visits.

One of the best things that it boasts to locals and visitors alike is food. The Austin food scene is phenomenal, and if you're planning a trip I'm sure you've seen plenty of lists filled with mouthwatering restaurants to pick and choose from.

While those lists probably have some great selections there's nothing like getting recommendations from a true Austinite. I was born and raised in Austin and go back often so I've tried many of the dining options the Texas capital has to offer, these are the ones I go back to every chance I get.

Chuy's Tex-Mex has classic Mexican food with a Texas twist.

Facebook/ Chuy's

Texas is known for Tex-Mex and Chuy's is the place to get it. Stop by at one of their multiple locations throughout the city to grab some tasty Mexican food with a Texan twist and enjoy some quirky "Keep Austin Weird" style decor (the chain's patron saint is Elvis, to give you an idea).

Order the deluxe chicken enchiladas or pork tacos with boom boom sauce and make sure to try the creamy jalapeno dip with your complimentary chips — it's one of the things I miss most from Texas.

Sway offers Thai food in an upscale setting.

If you're a fan of Thai food head to Sway for an upscale (but not stuffy) dining experience.

Everything is delicious but make sure to order the son in law, it's a rice and pork shoulder dish with a crispy egg that's easily the standout of any meal.

Taco More is authentic.

taco 3_orig
Taco More

Taco More is definitely out of the way (nowhere near any other attractions, sorry) and it's most definitely a hole in the wall but it's a Mexican restaurant that my family and I have gone to for years.

I've never ordered anything I didn't like but my favorites are the tacos de cecina,  pozole, and sopes. Fair warning, this restaurant is as authentic as it gets, you won't find any burritos here.

Mozart's Coffee Roasters has coffee and house-made baked goods.

mozart's coffee roaster
Facebok/Mozart's Coffee Roasters

Mozart's is actually a coffee house, not a restaurant, but it does have plenty of yummy desserts baked on premises. Even better than the sweets is the location, nestled right next to Lake Austin, the cafe also has great views.

Uchi is Japanese must-try restaurant.

uchi

To be honest, I've never been to Uchi, but it's been on my list for as long as I've known about it (which is a long time). The upscale Japanese restaurant is a consistent "must-try" recommended by my friends who still live in Austin and one that you'll always find on lists of food to try when visiting.

Ramen Tatsu-Ya is worth the wait.

ramen
Facebook/ Ramen Tatsu-ya

This little ramen spot is sure to have a line out the door if you don't show up before 5 p.m. so either get there early or have some snacks on hand while you wait. Don't let the line scare you away though, the ramen is totally worth it. As for what to order when you're in? My dad gets the Mi-so-hot on a weekly basis.

Amy's Ice Cream is dessert and an experience.

Facebook/ Amy's Ice Creams

Amy's is an Austin institution that actually lives up to the hype. The quirky ice cream spot has plenty of delicious ice cream flavors, out of the ordinary mix-ins, and even a bit of a show that the "scoops" (employees) put on while they're crushing together your ice cream and mix-ins.

You can't go wrong with anything here but the Mexican vanilla is an Amy's (and Austin) classic.

Güeros Taco Bar is in the heart of the city.

Facebook/ Guero's Taco Bar

If you're looking for tacos but want to stay close to the action downtown, check out Güeros on South Congress. It's an easy walk to other great spots in SoCo (like the famous "I love you so much" wall) and has worth-it Mexican food. I like the tacos al pastor. If there's a wait, enjoy some live music and a margarita in the adjacent, and affiliated, Oak Garden.

Launderette is my go-to for brunch.

Any time my best friend and I get brunch she suggests one spot, Launderette.

The bright and cheery laundromat turned cafe serves up great ambiance and great food (at all times of the day, not just brunch). Don't leave without ordering the birthday cake ice cream sandwich, it's good and will look great on your Instagram.

Hula Hut has great ambiance and food.

hula hut
Instagram/ Hula Hut

Just a few feet from Mozart's is Hula Hut, a Tex-Mex Polynesian spot that feels like summer in Hawaii, but in Texas.

The Tiki vibes and water-front location are super fun and the food doesn't suffer for the emphasis on ambiance. Order the mango poblano quesadilla or Mexonesian shrimp flautas, grab a Haleakalada (their version of a pina colada) and feel transported to an island far far away.

Need a bit of Darling?

Austin is the place to be; and the place to eat.

I’ve lived here in Austin for over 20 years, and man I’ve watched it grow. I grew up going to Westlake, went to the University of Texas, and have been living amongst so many foodies friends in downtown Austin since. Austin is home, it’s hip, it’s healthy, it’s active, it’s beautiful. Okay – it may be a little hot and there’s some traffic, but that’s not stopping everyone from moving here and eating their way through the fun and delicious food scene here in the big ATX. So here goes. I gathered together with a few of my favorite foodie gal pals and here’s what we came up with. This guide will change as the Austin foodscape changes, as I’ll continue to update it and keep it up to foodie heaven par.

Meet my top picks for mainly the central area of the city; they are in no way sponsored — just simply encouraged via taste buds, ambiance, and good company. Keep in mind these suggestions are *not* tailored towards food allergies; however, I can find something to eat at all places listed.
