10 Best Austin Restaurants

  • 3825 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin • Tarrytown
    Elexa Martinez - They have the best salsa and margaritas! Beautiful views and yummy food. I really love their hula hut copped salad with the blackened shrimp. My husband like the flautas and they have a nice kids menu that makes it family friendly.
    Cindy Hawkins - The Hula Hut is one of our favorites for celebrating special occasions. The food is scrumptious and I love sitting out on the floating bar on the water!
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - My favorite place to take guest from out of town. I love it and I am born and raised here.
  • 8106 Brodie Ln, Austin • Cherry Creek
    Elexa Martinez - This is definitely our favorite cajan food spot in Austin. We have been several times and they are alway so wonderful about making sure that my husband who has a shellfish allergy does not have any cross contamination in the kitchen. Everything we have ever had has been so delicious.
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - If you want Cajun in Austin, you go here
    Julio Martinez - Awesome catfish and dirty rice

    Sara Marie - Damn good tacos, that's for sure. You can never go wrong with their queso and be sure to make any taco trashy while you're there.
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - a great place for crazy tacos!
    Christopher Lance Prior - Thursday they have great nachos for their lunch special in RR, TX. Torchy's is awesome!!

  • 1415 S Congress Ave, Austin • Travis Heights
    Elexa Martinez - This is one of my families favorite local pizza spots. The pizza has that perfect artisan and unique pizza, the whole family can enjoy. Perfect for a casual date or family night.
    Julie Joyce - Our favorite go to pizza place. Everything is yummy: pizza, salads, sandwiches (hot and cold) . Good beer and wine selection. We go here every year on the kids first day of school. One of our favorite traditions.

    Elexa Martinez - We love Phil's for the whole family. The burgers are really good the regular and the sliders and they have nice plump fries. They also have a playground for the kids with nice shaded tables for eating outside.
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - burgers, ice cream, and a playground. Enough said #FamilyLife

  • 5207 Brodie Ln, Austin • South Austin
    Elexa Martinez - My family's go to for Indian food. Our favorites are the chicken and veggie pakoras, chicken veggie tikka masala, kabob salad and of course their mango lemonade that we can never get enough of. I really like how you can choose how spicy you want your dishes. They are vegan and gluten free friendly and offer an amazing kids menu that is almost enough for an adult. I have been to 3 different locations and have had the same quality of food and service in all 3. It is a must local restaurant spot.
    Cindy Hawkins - Elexa introduced us to Tarka Indian kitchen and I have to say that I really enjoyed the selection, variety and flavor of the food here.
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - My wife who is half Thai loves this Indian place. Very authentic and not overpriced.
  • 909 W Mary St, Austin
    Elexa Martinez - Local and so delicious with great gluten-free bakery options. My family's favorite is the drunken noodles for a little spice and the pat sea ew for the family. Their employee model is commendable I like supporting local and sustainable business and this one is a gem.
    Julie Joyce - We have passed by so many times and said “we need to try this place” and we finally did from the Fresh Chalk recommendations. So good!! My husband and I shared two appetizers and one entrée and it was more than enough for the two of us. The veggies were so fresh and cooked perfectly. The spice of the meat was wonderful. Definitely going back, soon.
    Liz Stella - We're huge fans of this restaurant! Delicious selection of dishes and also a great side bakery that's gluten-free providing sweet treats. They incorporate fair wages and holiday etc. into the price so you don't have to tip. A model that could be followed by many more restaurants!
  • 3001 Ranch Rd 620 S, Austin
    Sara Marie - We are so lucky to have this in our small town. Everything we have ever tried has always been incredibly fresh and just so, so good! It’s one of the few places where we will have appetizers with our entrees.
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - I have had so many meetings here to meet with important people in the Austin tech field.
    Ryan Burke - The food is always fresh, prepared well, and absolutely delicious. They also have an extensive selection of wine.

    The view is impressive, which overlooks the rolling hills surrounding Lakeway. The patio/ bar seating area is very comfortable during non-summer months.

    I frequent this place semi-regularly and will continue to do so the foreseeable future. Great food, and usually not too long of a wait, even without reservations.
  • 2801 S Lamar Blvd, Austin • South Lamar
    Elexa Martinez - The best gluten free bread offered at a sub shop in town. They always have great weekly specials and their thunder sauce is everything .
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - An Austin Icon!
