Food and Beer in Austin

A quick rundown of places we’ve enjoyed in Texas.


  • Casino el Camino – good burgers and spicy wings. A bit of a “metal” vibe, but really enjoyable.
  • Polvos – boozy margaritas, hit or miss on food
  • Curra’s – solid Mexican food; try the avocado margarita
  • Texas Chili Parlor – very meaty chili, try the XX and also the green chili
  • Micklethwait Craft Meat – seriously delicious barbecue! Skip the line for Franklin and head here
  • Cenote – great breakfast/brunch spot in East Austin
  • Cuvee – nice coffee shop on the East side; interesting automated pour over machines
  • Easy Tiger – neat patio and great cheese board! Plus a pretty solid beer menu
  • Bangers – 30 house made brats and over 100 beers on the menu! Get the beer float and a pupwurst for your furry friend!


  • Blue Owl – sour mashed beers, tasting-style menu
  • Jester King – a bit of a drive but worth it, extensive beer menu
  • Live Oak – solid German-style beers
  • Craft Pride – drafthouse with Texas only beers; really diverse menu
  • Hops and Grain – tucked away in a warehouse on the East side
